 Do I trust vendors? No.    Do I trust the government? Even less.
I know the former is collecting for marketing, the latter has no business collecting anything without a warrant. Do I have anything to hide? No. But I don't think they need my credit card numbers, bank account numbers, or anything else.
Do I encrypt SD cards, upload encrypted files, send PGP email? yes.
Even then anything I want to be secure I do in person not on computer or phone. I am more than willing to have Google/Motorola know me better than my grandma for a better experience. But the feds better have a warrant from a judge to get that same information.

Technology today really amazes me, as you look back just 3 years you can see a great evoultion. Where you can see at never thought possible the home PC is in danger. Not that that's a bad thing, its just amazing how fast this sector is moving. Android 4.3 has made some strides in protecting or informing users about the apps running in the background through the notifications. Its up to the consumer to learn their phones and like what was said it's a comfort level. 



 



This is just a quick thought ...... With Apple looking into fingerprint technology how long before we start to see people arrested for unsolved crimes that happend years ago?

Very interesting point.



But if it's based on AuthenTec technology as it existed a few years ago, it wouldn't be very reliable.  I'd say it properly reads/matches the print about 60% of the time.  



What's really annoying is that the terms of Apple's purchase forced AutenTec to simply abandon support of its existing customer base, which was largely PC based (HP incorporated the reader in some of it's products).



You can't rely on it as the sole source of security, at least from my experience.  I expect (or hopefully) they've made breakthroughs since they were "appleized."

A definite maybe ... wink



I hope so, as wider adoption of this phone will increase the availability of accessories and support ...



If the Euro LTE bands are supported this becomes a truly world class phone ...

I didn't mean to come across as saying this is "the best of all possible worlds." Information is collected today for the most banal of reasons -- to sell me stuff I don't need. Fine; in return I get free search, Websites full of friends, and other benefits and I can do my best to resist the come-ons of marketers. The concern, well expressed by several on this thread, is what happens when that same information is turned to other purposes. The specific threat isn't easy to see -- again, what use is the information? -- but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I personally feel that most of the folks who have access to this data are simply too focused on selling to concern themselves with anything else. But one never knows. Healthy skepticism is your friend.

Speaking as an old guy that saw "number please" party lines, the first TV's and well into adulthood for any kind of home computers (commodore) I have enthusiastically embraced the digital world but with a lot of common sense thrown in.  I know that everything we throw out there is public forever so I am just careful what I "throw out there". I cannot imagine going back and living without the technology we have today.  We just have to be cautious how we use it. Thanks Matt, good to be back.
