Re: Only option to stay sane...

Yes, this is the threshold that I've hit, and is why I'm abandoning Android entirely.

"I'm not comfortable with my phone screen scraping everything I look at - as boring as it is. But what can you do to stop it?"

Well, what I do is root and remove the Google components (or, easier, install a ROM that has already done this), and install a real firewall which blocks all incoming and outgoing communications by default. But that's getting to be a harder solution to tolerate, which is why I'm giving up on Android.

What I will never do is to accept the spying.
