As the (mobile) hardware becomes more and more indistinguishable, the next focus of the smartphone wars will be about locking consumers into an ecosystem of content and services.
I’ve written to Vipre’s forum about this but have received no response. I’d like to know how they determine if a site is potentially dangerous.
And what brought me there? None other than the initial privacy-related email from Verizon. It’s all about my Customer Proprietary Network Information (CPNI) and whether they can share it with their family of companies. Of course if trends continue, that family of companies might include content creators like Fox, so I’m going to opt-out.
No problem, click the button, right?
And now I have to disable my firewall to protect my privacy. I hope this doesn’t signal the fashion of the rest of the week!
