Alejandro shows Tito the cellular traffic bug planted by the old man’s enemies [or, more likely, contractors “working for someone in the government, perhaps, but not on government business”] to intercept Volapuk messages sent to and from Tito’s soon-to-be-former room. Tito learns that the old man was once a counterintelligence officer and is now a “rogue player” to whose operation Tito’s uncles have committed the family (specifically, Tito).
The old man’s operation is likely an attempt to exact revenge on government figures guilty of crimes. Tito’s role in the operation is to meet the old man once again, receive an iPod containing “puro” [“the most perfectly groundless lies”], and “lose” the device to the pursuing enemies.
