quote: I do agree that this whole thing has been a bit overblown, but when they asked the CEO at CIQ "Could you at CIQ read the information in someones SMS if you wanted to?" and his answer was "probably, yes".So it still is a security concern for those who security/privacy matters to. Not saying they ARE reading messages and misuing information, but they certainly have the capabilities to. I don't see any reason why the contents of data transmissions would ever need to be packaged up and sent to them for telemetry data.

quote: Your theory of competitive sabotage is "out there". No one else has picked up the story because your theory is just plain stupid. You have no evidence that Telogis has their own consumer phone spyware (corporations specifically want telemetry apps for their mobile devices). And even if they did have their own consumer spyware, by tarnishing Carrier IQ they would be shooting themselves in the foot. The whole mobile metrics industry will be tarnished by the Carrier IQ saga.
