[Excerpt] "An independent executive branch board has concluded that the National Security Agency’s long-running program to collect billions of Americans’ phone records is illegal and should end.
In a strongly worded report to be issued Thursday, the Privacy and Civil Liberties Oversight Board (PCLOB) said that the statute upon which the program was based, Section 215 of the USA Patriot Act, “does not provide an adequate basis to support this program.”"
It's nice to know there are plenty of options available that aren't so monopolistic. I can still access my Gmail/Google apps accounts via IMAP with push notifications through K9, still use Google Search through Firefox, and even use Google Voice through their web app. For maps, I use https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.skobbler.forevermapng which isn't as great for finding places (though even Google's maps has been spotty at this of late), but is better at offline map functionality. If I'm looking for apps, there's always F-Droid and the Amazon App Store ( the app for which has improved considerably recently) for other options.
