Default Re: Carrier IQ (Spyware) on Blackberry?

I believe it is overblown, fed off of breathless media reports about how this is installed and invading the privacy of billions of mobile device users.

And each day, more and more carriers and device manufacturers say they aren't using it. So the threat to the billions gets much smaller.

Privacy is a huge problem. You cars are being tracked by camera, nothing wireless is as safe as we'd like.

My opinion (and I am entitled to it): Get over it. You have no privacy if you use any electronic equipment with a transmitting radio, or credit cards, or drive a car (or use an EZPass or some other RFID-type payment device).

The sky isn't falling. It fell a long time ago.
