There's a big bad mobile phone company out there that needs some #occupy attention. This company, along with its affiliates, spies on its users from day one. Every keypress is logged, every text message archived. This company was exposed earlier for the user tracking it was doing and immediately and publicly appeared to about face.

And this company is in the news again for the same infraction of spying on its users. The difference this time, however, is that the carriers are also being implicated as red-handed accomplices.

This company, of course, is none other than HTC and the spying is occurring thanks to the software provided by Carrier IQ.


Android is winning!
