Coming Back From China? Throw Your Phone OutS

According to the government, if you're coming back from China you probably want to ditch your phone. You know, just in case.

Apparently, US government officials have been advising frequent business travelers to keep separate electronics for use in China that they only use there. This includes computers and cellphones. And if you used your normal phone over there, it may be time to toss it.

It's all about corporate espionage, as one bugged phone or computer in the hands of a powerful exec could end up costing millions of dollars if info falls into the wrong hands.

It's both totally nuts and completely sensible at the same time. This is the age we live in, friends. [Geek.com]
