Your Data Is Not Your Own (Example # 1,267)

You don't still really think that stuff you do on or around the web is "private" do you? Even I buried that concept in my mind many moons ago - there's just too much revenue to be generated from valuable user data (likes, dislikes, patterns of behavior) for web companies to ignore it. It's like dangling a big slab of steak in front of a Lion - Simba can't help himself. It's just too juicy (and convenient) to ignore. The latest crinkle is that reportedly "... popular smartphone applications can access users’ text messages amongst other personal data, even when that phone is not being used"
