Gossip is the devil’s radio.
— George Harrison
Smartphones may be computers. But first, they’re radios. Radios are the guts of the computer. Hacking the radios of a computer bypasses driver, operating system, firmware and application layer, going straight to the signal. When you hack the hardware—the radio—the software is irrelevant. This blog entry provides some basic information about the radios in smartphones, as well as the antennas that make real estate mobbing—at least mobbing done like the real estate mobbers of northeast Seattle do it—possible.
Mobbing is another name for cyber-bullying. Real estate mobbing is defined by the United Nations as a type of forced eviction that may result from a host of conditions including real estate and private business actions or “land-grabbing” by entities including armed groups and paramilitaries (Forced Evictions: Fact Sheet No. 25 Rev. 1, http://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Publications/FS25.Rev.1.pdf). It’s likely that the list of conditions and agents in the United Nations document should include hate groups. The real estate bullies of northeast Seattle, self-dubbed “mobbers,” have used the term to characterize what they claim is “property war” and even a “professional real estate hit.”
In the United States, harassing someone out of their house is implicitly illegal, undermining basic civil and human rights. Those who would commit such a crime, whether out of hate or for profit, must hide the highly illegal utterances they use to threaten, coerce and con their victims out of their homes. At least in northeast Seattle, this they do by adopting the methods of private investigators, phone phreakers and hackers. Radio figures prominently in all of these.
