    Looks like HTC has quietly slipped its users a spying app that tracks an alarming amount of user behavior and sends that data off to itself and perhaps others via a mysterious service in the cloud. The snooping app came nestled with the 2.3.4 Android update pushed out to some of its smartphones such as the Sensation 4G and EVO 4G.

    Quite interesting. Sneaky and underhanded regardless of the legalities of it. So grateful that Team Synergy found it and nixed it.

    This is the original article: Are Your HTC Sensation and EVO 3D Watching You?

    I've been looking through the comments to this article. Some of the comments say that the spy app is actually from Sprint as it is present on a number of Sprint Android phones and not exclusive to HTC phones.

    "Smart Cards" like the AMEX Blue have been doing this all along (especially in Asia). Is it surprising smart phones are following?
