    Default Privacy hypocrisy

    What's the number one thing android detractors love to parrot each other about? Google services and privacy. Yet these same people:

    Own and use credit cards,
    Use a PC connected to the internet,
    Subscribe to an ISP,
    Are quite well known to their government revenue agencies,
    Have a social security number or equivalent,
    Shop online,
    Go about their daily business in a city littered with CCTV cameras,
    Probably forgetting 20 other things on this list.

    But because people are what they are, when some writer decides to jump on this hypocrisy bandwagon because the rotating banner ads on their website can benefit from a few more views, then all of a sudden omg smartphones. Seems pretty naive to have a dozen holes in your privacy to complain about one just because you seem to have lost the ability to think for yourself. It's far more likely that after I'm dead in 40 years, nothing whatsoever is ever going to have come of me using Google services.

    Those are some valid points. Another user brought up the fact that the phone book outright tells someone where anyone lives with a landline.
