    Smart Phone Gate

    Inside Carrier IQ-gate - Computerworld

    A security researcher named Trevor Eckhart posted a video Tuesday showing Carrier IQ software harvesting personal data without permission or even the option to turn it off.
    According to the video, Carrier IQ gathers and logs every physical button pressed, phone number dialed, the full text of text messages, and even search data over https connections, which are supposed to be encrypted. The software can capture details about videos watched, apps used and the users' location

    I don't get it; you seem to be worried about your privacy being compromised by using a cell phone...yet you plug a cable into your personal computer that literally connects it to 99% of the other computers in the world?

    Of course not. But I'm at home, and when I get a call, it isn't being secretly recorded without a warrant. When I'm away from home, I don't like my phone telling people where I'm at. And I hate talking on the phone when I'm not at my home.

    You're that guy I saw standing at the corner of Lincoln Way and Duff wearing tin-foil on your head and telling passing cars that the world will end in 5 weeks...aren't you?

    Oh, so you prefer to have your internet activity traced to an IP address associated with an ISP account in your name as opposed to, say, a public computer at the local library. Makes total sense. :roll eyes:

    First, this thing is being blown way out of proportion, again. Second, Apple isn't immune: Carrier IQ references discovered in Apple's iOS | The Verge
