Re: option c)
1) Root your phone so you actually have control of your phone. Sad, but true.
2) LBE works AWESOME to block nefarious requests to information completely unrelated to the app. You'll be surprised how many things ask or are currently - grabbing!
What I do...
Base Golden Image as updated as the day it's baked, plus freenas server, plus FOG.
Drop image, run, use. Save data to freenas share, corrupt OS, reboot, image again. Done.
Even VM's need updates.
Someone explain to me..
How you can be extradited in the first place, WITHOUT charge!?
CNET should be embarrased
I noticed this the other way with another download. I can't believe that download.com aka CNET would do some blatant, dumb, rookie move to its user populace.
If you can't handle the bandwidth concerns and trying to offset the costs with stupid TOOLBARS (so 2000) then for God's sake, sign up with Bitcasa and start acting like a technology company.

ALL people that "smart" are really just nuts
The elevator that only goes to the top, doesn't stop on all floors....
Chopper in USA = Motorcycle | Ax in USA = Chopper in UK
Thanks for the clarification
At this point, I wouldn't make of US laws, this is stupid.
What a joke of a law.
What he really needs to say is that Whitman ran eBay into the ground by overbuilding eBay
The site was user friendly, now it's completely cluttered and overwhelming for most. THAT is the problem. You water it back down and fix the UI, you get users back.
That - and people got cornered into using Paypal. Squareup will now kick their ass. Mark my words.
What I did was simply create a SPECIFIC email just for Facebook. That way, people that upload their address books with my personal email address DO NOT find my Facebook profile unless I add them.
I also use this "feature" to locate people by using their email address.
My suggestion is to create an email specifically for Facebook and never share that address with anyone - for any reason.
This is what you need to do
First, root your device. (Google z4) I don't like being forced by any carrier (Verizon in my case) to keep stupid crapware installed on my device that uses MY bandwidth. Lawsuit anyone?
Second, after you root it, immediately download and install LBE. This thing will light up like a Christmas Tree when you start downloading and installing other apps. I mean really, some of these things that want to read your IMEI or access SMS like the article suggests is asinine.
Furthermore, how many of these app vendors are SELLING your IMEI/Phone # info for spammers!? I've never given out my mobile # and get more and more calls now, even though I use Google Voice only for dial in/out. Hmm.
The minute RIM bent over for this, I knew it was over...
Once someone got the "keys" (Saudi Arabia, first?) I knew it was all down hill from there.
Everyone is so damn paranoid now the spy vs. spy is epic.
Pretty soon we just won't talk at all for fear someone is listening.
No CA's auditing their networks for vulns?
Hi Qualys, nice to meet you.
As long as you technical people comply with assisting these spies, YOU are part of the problem
Don't drink the kool-aid, they stroke your ego and shove the rest of us under the surveillance bus. They can't do it without you and don't be fooled into the power that you think you posses. You are a puppet.
Been saying this for over 8+ years. It's always been price. Check CNET forums.
Obvious over and out.
If you are going to provide goods to the Government, then it's time for the Gov't to make mandatory network audits of their potential suppliers/contractors.
What idiot moves there money into a safe if they don't check the security first.
What the government loves about this
They don't have to put in effort into tracking you down or finding out who you are. So what Facebook is doing by nailing everyone down to "be who you are" backfires against the very freedom of choosing to be anonymous. Granted, being on FB itself isn't itself a bright idea of you want anonymity, but they're pressing others to give up more.
What if I want to be vocal about my government? Why I can't I do that anonymously and not end up on some watch-list because they don't like what I have to say?
People are overlooking what they are giving up - and why, every day. It's getting scary.
Simple. GOOD mobile messaging
Special treatment for Government and Celebrities. Imagine if we found out all the BS and smoke and mirrors they all sell to us...
Captain Obvious here....
Someone explain to me for as popular as Dropbox is, why the HELL don't they force encryption on the client side BEFORE uploading.
Oh wait, I know why. So they can TURN OVER your stuff to the authorities!
Here's what your're missing
At least in the US I can barter all day long and keep the IRSs grubbing hands out of my personal transactions. Like our Income Tax, this was used for Businesses, not individuals. Everyone wants to argue you have to pay - but frankly, I barter as much as I can.
The ONLY reason a Government is panicking about some media like this, is because THEY control the currency and this can regulate, track, and tax you!
So, Bitcoin is a direct FINGER to all of the institutions. Not only will I use Bitcoin and accept it, I encourage it. Once our Government shows me that I can trust them with our taxes, I won't have to go to these extremes. Problem is, we're trusting less but giving more.
Time for Discovery
Once they get sued for this, the discovery will show they clearly KNOW what they are doing. This accidental claim is complete B$
Connect the Dots
Cisco counsel and DOJ/DHS counsel. Hmm
Sony Security - YOU SUCK
And you're in charge of a cluster of code cracking GPU's!? Dangerous...
Come on Verizon! You're a network leader, don't leave us behind.
Some C level - get your head out of your arse and get this fire going to move us to updated versions!
You know what is embarrasing about this...
They used our own technological cavalier attitude against us!
Meanwhile, I am taking my shoes off at the airport, getting X-rayed naked in the body scanner, having all my internet traffic vacuumed up and sent through a Narus box directly to the NSA. We have tracking devices that don't fall under the 4th Amendment stuck to our cars, our banking activities are all reported...
So, who has really cost us our freedom? Our own Government or the Terrorists?
At least the protesters after Vietnam did something.
Captain Business 101 Here
Save $7 Billion and do it yourselves, but better. Peer to peer is inefficient as it sits. $1 Billion would get you a hell of a lot of tech and R&D. If I were a shareholder (I'm smarter than that) I would be pissed off right about now.
PS3 Cluster using GPU
Not Tinfoil at all - reality
If you have half a brain, you'd realize that this is the absolute mother-load of six-degrees'ing. Facebook is the most dense collection of relationship and archived map of one's life and relationships. To think that this is not being exploited is not only naive, but downright dumb.
Tinfoil my arse.
Audit your network dummy
Cause and Effect stupid
Don't get arrested. Don't overdose to kill oneself.
Personal favors for arresting someone? What the hell is going on in Canada besides Moose and Maple Syrup!?
When are we going to have enough of this!?
Online Id's, tracking GSP without a warrant, the Patriot Act...I mean really, when's enough a enough? We're all too damn busy playing Xbox and updating Facebook we're overlooking an opportunity like 1960 to tell this Government and these blue-blood bozo's we're done!
