Consumers Choose – Neat Apps or Privacy?

The Really Smart Phone

Apple and Google may be intensifying privacy concerns by tracking where and when people use their mobile phones—but the true future of consumer surveillance is taking shape inside the cellphones at a weather-stained apartment complex in Cambridge, Mass.

For almost two years, Alex Pentland at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has tracked 60 families living in campus quarters via sensors and software on their smartphones—recording their movements, relationships, moods, health, calling habits and spending. In this wealth of intimate detail, he is finding patterns of human behavior that could reveal how millions of people interact at home, work and play.

Now that it is becoming widely known that privacy will be compromised with the use of smart phone – the consumers have a choice.

Do you use smart phones with the neat applications OR do you use another product with increased privacy?

    I’m really enjoying the design and layout of your blog. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Outstanding work!…

      Thanks. The design is to be simple and readable. The goal is to have short snipets of common sense to decipher the news.
