Tysklands politiker funderar på att använda skrivmaskiner på nytt för att undgå NSA:s spioneri. En äkta "Old School -lösning" på tyskarnas nya "STASI-problem..."***
An increasing number of businesses are opting out of staying virtually connected and are reverting back to old technologies to avoid being spied on.
The move has led to a surge in typewriter sales in Germany.
German typewriter makers such as Bandermann and Olympia have cited climbing sales amid NSA spying revelations.
"We sell about 10,000 [typewriters] every year," Bandermann manager Rolf Bonnen told The Local.
"We’ve seen an increase because Brother left the market [in 2012],” he added. The company's sales jumped by one-third over last year since 2012.
Triumph Adler, which is part of Bandermann, began advertising its typewriters as 'Bug proof. NSA proof” in 2013 in order to attract more consumers.
Amid the worsening Berlin-Washington spy row, German politicians are considering going back to old-fashioned manual typewriters for confidential documents to protect national secrets from American NSA spooks.
Patrick Sensburg, the chair of the German parliament’s enquiry into NSA alleged spying, said committee members are considering new security measures and are seriously thinking about abandoning email and returning to old school typewriters.
“As a matter of fact, we already have [a typewriter], and it’s even a non-electronic typewriter,” he told the ARD Morning Show Monday.
The interviewer, apparently surprised by the idea, asked if that was really the case, The Guardian writes. “Yes, no joke”, responded Sensburg of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union party.

RT's Ameera David has more details on the reasons behind the potential move.
