A lot of you probably heard of CarrierIQ by now, but here's a video
demoing

=============================================================== From: Sidney Hale ------------------------------------------------------ I have a stock HTC device and these services are not present on it. I did turn on USB debugging, but did not connect the device to a USB cable. I seriously think this is overblown hype. Also, the Feds don't need some service on your phone to read all your phone calls, https traffic, SMS. They have computers in the data centers crunching all that. I would not be surprised if this shit was not backed by Apple.

All I have to say is that is what they get for buying a phone where the manufacturer and/or carrier was allowed to modify the OS. Come on people can't believe that sense ui and other "improvements" were a good thing. -- sent from my Nexus S running vanilla Android and no carrierIQ wrote: demoing where the CarrierIQ software permits limitless use as a keylogger. rootkit could run inside the kernel, or told its partners what not to do. I don't think i'll be buying any further Android devices.

=============================================================== From: Sidney Hale ------------------------------------------------------ I'm thinking this is a Sprint thing. The only thing I have further to say about it is vote with your wallet. This is the price of having an open platform. Google should not stop these things. Customers should by voting with their wallets.
