Mario:

Just to let you know, I'm John Gardi, tinker.

I don't mind you parroting my story, I expect that from a media without original thought. BUT, that's my FRIEND'S illustration up there that you are unfairly allowing folks to annotate. Since you don't moderate your site very well, this is a problem! Fix it!

I will tell the world I disapprove (I stick up for my friends: tinker's rule #1!), INCLUDING Elon Musk WHEN he chimes in on what a good ORIGINAL article I wrote.

You have til 4pm to respond, then I have some 'honest' media to talk to. Come to Twitter, we'll have a chat IN PUBLIC if you're brave enough.

YOUR 'article' isn't worth the server space it's stored on. Feel free to re-post THESE comments. I expect THAT of you too.

Mario, the word needs to spread outside of the technical community.

Hit the main stream in a way that consumers understand what this means to them personally.

We are talking about personal information stolen from at least 140 million users without their knowledge or consent.

Even (which I doubt) if the data never left their phone. Personal information has to be the least protected asset uninformed people have.

There is no way that this collected data is used for true system diagnostics. I always love these unambiguous words like "user experience" Follow the money... being able to uniquely identify someone from this and other collected data is the goal.

The commerce of this century is user identity and ways to exploit the data.

I truly can not personally blame CarrierIQ for this, they are just trying to be better then the next guy with their product.

They were caught and this should be the RED FLAG to enhance consumer awareness of common practice and business models.

Hopefully, Laws will catch up with technology and be enforced to protect PII information universally.

Thank you for this blog and keep them coming. I am also trying to spread the word :-)

Anonymous and the like have plagued corporations and government entities alike for years now, and despite dozens of arrests, attacks are as prevalent as ever.

The same RIAA that makes examples out of ordinary folks by suing them for millions of dollars for file sharing? Turns out someone there's been pirating full seasons of Dexter.
