We-spy a new gadget for phone users

As if the possibilities of Google Earth aren’t creepy enough, there’s now a brand new tool for amateur spies on the market. A simple gadget from Brando converts your mobile phone into a telescope.

Owners of selected phones – the Apple iPhone included – can attach the lens to their camera phone and zoom right in to watch the activities of their neighbours – and even snap pictures if they so desire.

So if you’re looking for a little leverage, but don’t have the resources of MI5 at your fingertips, it might be worth investing in one of these babies. And at US$19, it could easily pay for itself in blackmail material within the week.
