Originally broadcasted as a CNBC special report on Nov. 1, 2006. The rapid advance of technology allows companies to monitor our every move and record our most private personal information. Driving habits are being recorded; employees are monitored, shoppers and diners are observed and analyzed; internet searches are saved and used as evidence in court. It is big business that collects most of the data about us. But increasingly, it is the government that's using it. Big brother, big business take an enlightening and sometime disturbing look at how the growth of the information society may be eroding the freedoms many people take for granted.

Produce by Lori Gordon; edited by Patrick Ahearn; written by David Faber, Lori Gordon, Josh Howard; coordinating producer, Alison O'brien.
