Meanwhile, I purposely sign up for shit that does that, like Latitude. "Turn Death Ray locator beacon on so you can find your friends on Google Maps?"

And then these apps send your info to 3rd parties.
There will come a day for every man when he will relish the prospect of eating his own shit. That day has yet to come for me.

Like everything else I touch in the world! The CCTV cameras, my credit cards, my bank, my job, Firefox, the government...

It's pointless worrying about this stuff because there's no hiding from it... Unless you go off the grid.  Which I'd love to do someday.

So...interestingly...someone used my credit card number last weekend in California.  $1800 worth of charges.

Bank of America is being cool about it.  It's just weird.

Ah...maybe you can explain to me then, how did you spend over 500 at the grocery store...twice in the same day?

The thing is, though... The Droid survived.  I was reading about that today and the article said that the phone was in perfect working order.  You can't go wrong!

For the record, I always use the speakerphone... because it's awesome on the Droid.

I'm pretty sure that entire story is bullshit. I.e He dropped it and broke the screen, then cut his ear later on when using the phone. Now he just wants a free phone or some shit. If the battery exploded, it wouldn't have been at the top because the battery's in the bottom, right?

Plus, the Droid gets up to about 200 degrees on a normal day, so I think he would have thought, hmmm...

Could the speaker have exploded?

Yeah, that story has got to be bullshit.  Anything that ends with them considering a lawsuit is just money grubbing.  Like Tyson said... why would the phone "explode" up there?  It doesn't make sense.
