Tracking smart phones

 http://www.globalethics.org/newsline/2011/04/25/tech-ethics-12/

As technology rapidly develops it will become increasingly easier for others to peer into your personal life via your smart phone. Today you are not only safe from hackers and identity thieves, but company’s such as apple and blackberry as well. They claim they are tracking you internet usage and data sent and received to better tailor the smart phone experience for the user. In reality by making it easier for them to track you they have also made it easier for individuals with malicious intent to see you "digital fingerprint" as well. The only way to prevent making your personal information invisible to savvy hackers is to not use a smart phone. Now for some that may be impossible so if you can live without it, be sure to not send anything on it that you wouldn't hand directly to a stranger.
