    Ok,

    - Is anybody concerned ?
    - Is this type of monitoring a good thing ?
    - How about flashing that custom-built firmware ? Will this be possible on an X ? Even if it's possible should we ?
    - ?

    Thanks,

    Peter.

    If people aren't paying attention to user comments and security warnings, then they are burning themselves. It's not a problem with the Android OS or any Android-based phones or even the Android market.

    It's purely user ignorance when it comes to security.
