Phones Recording Everything You Do !!!!
« on: November 30, 2011, 01:57:55 PM »
Just read this on Gizmodo about Android Phones:

Scary invasive privacy issues, and probably on a lot more than just Android phones :o
Worth a quick look.

The comments are hilarious - the discussion on whether it should have a "-gate" name attached to the debacle...  and the eventual posting of Christina Apple-gate.

How bad is this?   Could be massive - could be overblown.  Not sure yet.  I'm sure Carrier IQ is a benevolent demigod and is protecting our private information with the utmost of care....   cough.

I think we should stop immediately any use of mobile phones and internet because of this "new" and unexpected" information!!!!!!

I think mine is pretty safe as it's about 9 years old and can double as a hammer or anchor when not being used as a phone.
Never regret money spent on old books, old dogs or old friends.

I read about that issue, truly scary.
I wish I was CIQ - I'd have the best field recording network ever ;)
