Bugs & Viruses AT&T has told the U.S. Congress that its customers agreed to host Carrier IQ tracking software on their cellphones in their contracts. You might recall that, after the scandal over warrentless surveillance broke in 2006, AT&T quietly changed their contract for internet service to say that it -- not its customers -- owns all the customers' internet records. Those concerned about privacy might consider whether AT&T merits their trust.

My problem is that companies and governments alike are shitting all over my privacy. I'd like to have a cell phone - maybe even a smart phone - without feeling like a lab rat or a citizen of Oceania.
