The good guys, Google is your friend... they didn't mean to do it.
Wait till the MS Surface comes out. <grin>
Google makes their own app called "Google Drive." Most of the items listed under "permissions" I could blow off, you give the app
permission to write, read and delete files on the cell phone and google drive. I hope they are talking about for your purposes not theirs.
Then I see "Allows the app to take pictures and videos with the camera. This allows the app at any time to collect images the camera is
seeing." Why would Google Drive For Android need to do this? Wouldn't that already be covered in the camera app?
Then it occurred to me that the permissions scheme on Android may be somewhat coarse. The applications I've used that need that access really seem to only require it so they can suspend/resume themselves when there's a phone call in progress.
Not that I'm attempting to dismiss your skepticism, but perhaps the Google Drive app will let you take pictures/video and store it directly to your Google Drive space? If I were Google, trying to get people to use my cloud services, that's what I would do.
the law or not. License agreements, and privacy policies are written so vaguely you don't know if they are F'ing you over or not.
It probably is for innocent purposes, but if they were snapping pictures of you and you complained they could say "You agreed to it when
you signed up!"
If you are not doing anything wrong, you have everything to fear.
I'm noticing an awesome new feature after upgrading my Chrome browser. If you open a blank tab, one of the bars on the bottom it offers is "Other Devices."
It shows all of the pages that are currently open in your Chrome browser on other computers. I think this is cool because I use Chrome at work, at home, and on my laptop, and I'm already finding it insanely useful to see what the other computers have open and be able to pick up where I left off without having to email links to myself.
And no, I don't feel threatened by Google knowing my browser history. If I want to browse in secret I use incognito mode anyway.
I have to guess that eventually Chrome will be the Android browser.
Somewhat surprisingly -- it's a fast browser on a PC or Mac -- the system requirements appear to be too high for a tablet or phone. Chrome is a failure on our first-generation iPad; far too sluggish.
Ice Cream Sandwich.
LS: siince both are based on khtml, yes astonishing.
i guess the ipad browser has more optimisation for the hardware...

Someone's logging in as "admin" and has been doing so for a while. No big
deal; it's not a real admin account, so this is really just some douche

Why is the GoogleBot logging in with a username "admin" and password "admin"?
Surely it is just a spelling error and they originally wanted to be funny by using Adam as user and password. Same with the accidently recorded unencrypted wifi traffic, that was just a programming glitch, too. They would never ever do something really bad!
Ah, btw, if you happen to fornicate your dog while they are driving past your window fotographing your streets, it was your responsibility to close the curtains as it was your responsibility to change your admin password... Thats no experiment in massive site hacking, you are overreacting!
But while we are on this, is there a way to blacklist usernames on "open" registration instances of citadel? The dictator in me demands censorship!
