    Be careful of what kind of actions you take on the Vivid. It has the CarrierIQ Spyware installed; and every single thing you do, including keystrokes, texts, emails, phone calls, etc, is recorded and can be seen. I will not do any banking or other financial business on this device!

    If you're not familiar with CarrierIQ Spyware and its ramifications, do a Google. There are already a bunch of Class Action Lawsuits about this very serious breech of confidentiality, privacy and security.

    Nope. Doesn't matter. I just don't care.

    I wonder if Google, Yahoo, or ATT can track everything I do in their systems.
    I also wonder if Microsoft might have programs that dial home, or maybe if iTunes knows what I do. Better yet is my PVR dialing home to say what I've been watching, how many times I've paused, skipped commercials, or switched channels.

    God maybe I should just unplug and put up a wire cage around my house.

    Cell companies have been tracking us for years among other things that track our actions. It's part of the way things are now.
