Richard: (e) I often don’t know where my phone is.

2. Israeli spyware Pegasus* marketed and sold to other governments is used to spy on activists, journalists, and political leaders. Do you believe hackers are monitoring your smartphone?

Jayden: I’m sure someone is. I hope they like kinky memes and geeky things.

Richard: I believe being monitored is the purpose of my smartphone.

3. When in flight, on an airplane, do you put your phone in flight mode?

Jayden: Yeah, we’re supposed to, right?
