Task Manager kills privacy
I'm amazed to find no discussion of this:
Android/Google is at it again, not giving a rat's you know what about privacy. Everyone is raving about the new Task Manger in Ice Cream Sandwich, which gives snapshots of open applications and allows you to swipe them closed.
This means your recently open emails, recently open text messages, recently open photos, etc. are viewable through Android's new Task Manager (which you get to by long-pressing the home button), REGARDLESS whether you have those apps protected behind an app manager security lock.
And Android provides no settings to override this "feature."
In other words, unless your whole phone is security locked (which some people don't like to do so they don't have to go through the repeated process of unlocking, or to make it safer to access the phone in driving mode, or to enable good Samaritans to get to the dialer and return a lost phone), anyone who picks up your phone can see at least portions of your recent texts, emails, photos, etc. simply by going to the Task Manager.
Good job Google. You've been miserably failing at privacy for two decades now.
(Also, as long as I'm being the Grinch, some of us don't want to listen to your power up and power down jingles, say, for instance, if we're in class, in the library, or in court. Would it kill you to provide some user defined environment settings once in a while?)
