A good practice is to find an app in which you are interested, then review the permissions to verify they make sense.

For instance, if you're downloading a new phonebook and the app asks for permission to your contacts, you can assume that it really needs it.
If you're downloading a new tic-tac-toe game that asks for full permission to read your ingoing and outgoing calls, you should really question why it needs that.

This isn't foolproof, but it is a really good place to start.

My Chem 101 class at Nebraska photo copied every test. Oh, and they don't tell you that until after the regrade submission time for the first test is finished. I think my class dropped in size from 250 to 230 people after they submitted all the cheaters to student affairs.

Most other profs simply wrote either the correct answer or simply what you did wrong in red.

You have to take into account the fact that North America is enormous compared to most other countries topping that list.

It's not feasible to think places like the midwest with many many miles between towns can offer high speed to the people that live between said towns.

Every cloud has a silver lining; you should have sold it, and bought titanium.
