I agree and disagree, the problem is managers don't understand the programming. If a manger knew that you were going to build off a similar product with low overhead and low time he could make that call. But a lot of it has more to do with how much are the devs budgeted.

I don't want companies and apps having any of my information. They want it, and in exchange for using their services I have to hand it over for them to lose. Yet somehow they aren't responsible for that loss. Then all the someone else stuff is really you want an ecosystem that works on your computer or phone, true I do want it to work togther, but I don't want them knowing anything about my pics or texts or whatever. The last part is ridiculous. The only, only, only reason I need to be able to do a password recovery is because all of these sites don't allow me to use the password I want and nothing less or more. The fact that some demand a capital and don't accept certain punctuation annoy the hell out of me. And without a password saver or some sort of requirements hint on the log in it's all guessing if I frequent the site very little.

In case of injury notify your superior immediately. He'll kiss it and make it better.
