Your Smartphone is Spying on YOU!!

Sure glad I never got the upgrade!!

An Android developer recently discovered a clandestine application called Carrier IQ built into most smartphones that doesn't just track your location; it secretly records your keystrokes, and there's nothing you can do about it. Is it time to put on a tinfoil hat? That depends on how you feel about privacy...

Oh snaps... Well i don't have anything on my phone that they could use, and i don't really have internet unless i am at home and connect to my network. I have a computer for that which they are probably also tracking.. From what i know there is already i pretty big battle going on in these kinds of things, People find ways to "Block" these tracking terms and the companies find new ways to upgrade it then people block it and back and forth. This is too much thinking for me to attempt so they can have my information, they won't be able to do much with it cause it is not of any use to them but whatever. When i was in highschool one of my teachers was telling me there is a company that listens to all out phone calls, and knows everything we do from updating here to watching videos to downloading programs to whatever else. The only way i could see they wouldn't be able to do this is to go amish style and live without technology.
