The confusion over the A10 probably came from confusion with our metadata collection efforts with regard to one of several programs ID'd with the "A10" reference, such as the Aero A.10, a Czech biplane airliner which is involved in espionage, the Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II, (a combat aircraft flown by the United States Air Force), HMS A10, (a British A class submarine involved in ultra-low frequency spy networks,or the A10 chipset, (mainly used in Android tablet computers, which have a back-door for government purposes).

So see, you all have nothing to worry about. Trust me, I'm from the government. Bigwink

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night

RE: Airsense A10 and the NSA
My older son and family have family share on our cell account. Last month my 16 yr old grandson usage showed 6321 text ... unlimited text and voiceRolleyes. If the Gvt reads his text that should keep them very busy. Assuming 1 sec per text, it would take someone 1.75 hours to read them all just for the one month for one 16 year old. there are ~322,268,000 people in US and ~40,747,000 are under 10-19 years old. Assume they each average 50 texts (conservative) per day ... ~565,930 hours to read at 1 sec per text. It would take 70,741 people working an 8 hour shift to read just the teen texts. Just saying ...

RE: Airsense A10 and the NSA
This thread is hysterical. What do you think the NSA could do with either CPAP data or the noises you might make while asleep or awake in your bedroom? Didn't one of our members take apart an A10 to disable the modem? I'm sure if there were a microphone inside he would have disabled that as well (read remove). Your cell phone is something to be concerned about but CPAP, I rather doubt it. If you are still concerned open up your A10 and remove the microphone.

Americans sent 69,000 texts every second in 2012 (CTIA)
The average adult spends a total of 23 hours a week texting (USA Today)
The average Millennial exchanges an average of 67 text messages per day (Business Insider)


• Assume read 1 text per second requires 69,000 sec to read all texts sent
• Then must read 69,000 * 60 *60 = 248,400,000 texts per hour
• So at minimum wage (not Gvt wage), 248,400,000 * $7.25 = $1,800,900,000

Why is the Gvt wasting over $1.8 Billion dollars per hour to read our messages?Thinking-about Lolabove

No wonder the national debts is rising so fast. Oh-jeez

I'm afraid you're under the impression that humans read all text messages at here at HQ. Nothing could be further than the truth.

We have super-computers that provide voice-to-text conversion for all telecommunications (IP, sat, landline, cell) and (of course) all phone text messages. The resulting voice communication text files and associated metadata are stored in vast databases.

The resulting files are then scanned by super-computers for keywords and processed with phrase analysis using sophisticated algorithms to provide a flag on a small minority of those files and grade them with a particular level of "threat likelihood" via those algorithms.

A team of threat analysis specialists then provide further human-based analysis of these "hits", and then (and only then) is when an employee gets involved in the process. Thus, huge sums of money are saved via massive keyword and keyphrase tagging via super-computer prior to human involvement. It's quite cost-effective.

Does the organization record all telecommunications? Yes, of course, but those communications are converted to text and stored in databases, processed and graded automatically, and the vast majority of conversations not flagged with a threat likelihood tag are deleted, but the metadata is kept forever. The remaining flagged audio recordings are stored indefinitely for future retrieval, both in text and digital audio form, so humans can read (and listen to in the future) conversations that are likely to affect national security.

The truth is that digital storage is pretty cheap these days, and we're trying our best here at HQ to squeeze every one of your tax dollars for maximum cost-effectiveness.

But let me assure you: we are NOT recording your snoring via your CPAP machine at this point in time.

No need to thank us - it's just what we do here. Bigwink

Carry on.
