Is Your Cubicle (Donut) Bugged?

When we think of wiretapping, our minds leap naturally to the image of a trench-coated FBI or CIA agent, hunched with earphones over a jumble of wires through which the bad guy's voice can be heard with startling clarity. There's some truth to that image (or at least there was), but the reality is far broader. While government agents obviously do conduct wiretaps, their efforts at surveillance are more closely monitored and subject to far greater restrictions than businesses, who have been able to listen in on the conversations of their employees with near-impunity for decades.
