    The TV show "Person of Interest" used something like this as a way to clone phones and listen in, but I figured it was just made-up for TV. I shouldn't be surprised.

    Yeah I saw all 3 Pacific Tropical Storms, but Max is the worrisome one.

    I saw all 3 Pacific Storms, as I was fading into slumber land, late last night.:snooze:
    Looking at All 6 Storms within 10 days of North America right now.
