Carrier IQ

Trevor Eckhart is all over the news with the below video showing how Carrier IQ software on your Android phone is recording and transmitting every possible detail of your phone use (including all web pages visited and the content of your text message BEFORE you even see them). The software company initially threaten to sue Trevor for exposing them, but as since back away, presumable having spoken to their own counsel and PR people.

I would expect several major class action lawsuits filed by the end of this week.

UPDATE: As predicted, Carrier IQ has been hit with the first, of what will be many, many class action lawsuits.
