    Hey Freddy, what do you say to this?

    Freddy, you're always so quick to invent & push some kind of Apple "gate" scandal.

    How about this new blooming scandal that invovles your treasued Rimm devices?

    "Phone 'Rootkit' Maker Carrier IQ May Have Violated Wiretap Law In Millions Of Cases

    A piece of keystroke-sniffing software called Carrier IQ has been embedded so deeply in millions of Nokia, Android, and RIM devices that it’s tough to spot and nearly impossible to remove, as 25-year old Connecticut systems administrator Trevor Eckhart revealed in a video Tuesday.

    That’s not just creepy, says Paul Ohm, a former Justice Department prosecutor and law professor at the University of Colorado Law School. He thinks it’s also likely grounds for a class action lawsuit based on a federal wiretapping law.

    “If CarrierIQ has gotten the handset manufactures to install secret software that records keystrokes intended for text messaging and the Internet and are sending some of that information back somewhere, this is very likely a federal wiretap.” he says. “And that gives the people wiretapped the right to sue and provides for significant monetary damages.”

    Well Freddy we're waiting.

    The rest of you Rimmtards can chime in with excuses too, if you want.

    Ayuh
