I found this post IAU.
Self appointed vigilantes are never a good thing, that's why you should be taking issue with this.
Because it's mob justice. Because it presumes guilt without a fair trial. Because each vigilante works to their own personal agenda, which may not exactly be what they claim to be and may not be what you agree with. Because vigilantes have nothing to show they know what they're doing. Because, well, what could possibly go wrong...
It'll be the usual story with Samsung;
Software; Oh my god, what did your customers do to you to inflict this on them?
Never under-estimate the ability of a random poster to point out, after 2 minutes thought, things that so-called experts have jointly devoted hundreds of years of studying to, yet completely over-looked. Like they were total morons.
It's what makes internet forums the font of all human progress, and not ill-informed stupidity.
So either you went to a really bad school, were a child genius, or just a normal teenager with an inflated opinion of your knowledge and experience in comparison to adults.
Which do you think is most likely?
Google "Facebook shadow profile". The near future already exists.
Cameron's real problem is that he doesn't understand anything that doesn't have profit as a bottom line. And the greedy cronies that he's surrounded by (it would be a mistake to think them idiots) aren't interested in anything that doesn't have profit as a bottom line. It is, they believe, everything that makes reality work.
There is no obvious profit margin in other people's privacy. Therefore it has no value, and is a hindrance to where profit is to be made. So it must be removed.
Yeah people! You've had two whole months to be doing that upgrade! What's taking you so long?
Anyone would think people had more important things to be doing than spending Christmas attending to their phone. All those poor androids out there running an OS literally 60 days out of date! It's enough to make you weep. I guess some folk just have no shame.
"People north of 40 are schizophrenic about voice mail," says Michael Schrage.
I don't even know what the hell that means. Wikipedia defines Schizophrenia as "characterized by abnormal social behavior and failure to recognize what is real." Is he saying that people over 40 think voice mail is a voice in their head?

Watergategategate - conspiracy theory regarding why this retrofitting has not yet been done.
But, but, but you don't understand! Gamers are having games that are no good forced on them through an evil conspiracy by game companies with journalists! They are having to spend hours trudging through dull games that are not fun! They are being blackmailed into spending thousands on in-game purchases, otherwise they won't reach level 100 and their lives will be worthless!
The number of basic human rights that are being violated here are beyond count! Why does no-one care??!!
Another internet tough guy.
Look at it this way. Are you prepared to go see a mediocre movie, where there's a slight chance of the cinema being targeted for a terrorist attack (made greater because it is the only cinema showing it), just to prove a point? And if the worse happened, you (or your bereaved family) would in no way ever consider suing both cinema and Sony for negligence in showing it, when they knew there was a chance of this happening?
If you aren't prepared to do all the above, why should anyone else?
