Unstrung & Paranoid

10:15 PM -- Ah, the many wonderful applications of wireless -- from utopian dreams of crossing the digital divide... to possibly being able to spy on your more lubricious house guests without them ever knowing.

Meet the wireless camera that's disguised as a stylin' table lamp. Value-priced at just a thousand bucks, from the folks at The Specialized Group Website, which seems to cater exclusively to the paranoid.

Check out the sales pitch:

    You can...see if there are unauthorized persons on the premises, or you can record personnel as they perform their duties in your home or office. Adding Covert Cameras to your current visible security camera system is the best way to ensure complete security.
The camera, however, runs over 2.4 GHz, so it seems to me that an equally paranoid house guest might do well to carry 'round a handheld wireless scanner to sniff these things out.
