Saw a presentation last week about mobile spyware.
This YouTube clip (nearly 5 million views) was shown – I was shocked.
Keep in mind, this video report is 2 years old.
The prevelance of these mobile security/privacy threats is debatable. However, it doesn’t seem like much of a reach to forsee these issues exploding right along with the mobile phone market.
Listening to Bob describe his issues was exactly like listening to 90% of the people I talk to these days. It’s not that their computers don’t work, it’s that they don’t work well. Things take too long to open, Internet connections seem slow and as a rule, hard drive space is starting to disappear. This is especially true with systems that are over 3 years old. The older smaller drives of these system fill up quickly when compared to todays systems with large capacity hard drives.
