Re: Security
I am sure they'll "talk their way" out of their latest predicament..but so far you have India, Israel and the US on their tail...the problem is indeed that they're too big...they're a country onto themselves with 2 Billion Users..but when the WhatsApp co-founder says enough is enough..we simple folks ought to take note as their stock seems to be stuck so far...

Re: Security
@mpouraryan, that's a great question. It is my personal opinion that Facebook is too big to fail and this like other data breaches in the past will eventually be forgotten.

Since we're talking Security, wonder what you all think about the latest interesting twist re: Facebook?

Re: Security
@Elizabeth yes, first of all, the default on your phone is to track your location, so it knows a lot more about where you're going than your car, which may not always be your means of getting where you're going. Also in the case of the boxes, it may have been able to guess how I drive normally, but it would be extrapoloating from just the 90 days or so that it was supposed to be installed. The insurance company actually demands it be returned to them after that time.

Re: Security
I wonder how secure the boxes are from hackers? We like to think no one has any interest in the boxes, I'm sure. But what if someone wants to watch your every move? Even they're just selling that information to marketers. Though I suppose your cell phone would almost be more telling about your every move than a box in your car.

Re: Security
@elizabeth I was actually OK with the box in the car. But -- like you -- my husband didn't like feeling like his driving habits were being recorded. So we only got the bit of a discount for my car.

Re: Security
@Ariella - without a doubt. But somehow I'm okay with the risk - and at the same time, refuse to have one of those monitors installed in my car that reports back to the insurance company how I drive. That kind of intrusiveness, not okay in my opinion. Those two facts seem counter-intuitive, but nonetheless, they exist in my mind. Lol

<I just hope most people would find watching my kids sleep boring and move on quickly. > LoL @ Elizabeth. but even if they don't use the visual data in some way, there is still something very creepy about strangers having access to it.

Always Need Security
I think that security is very necessary for businesses and when you are using web sites online that can cause malware viruses. I'm sure that it will be very valuable to have security and advanced securtity at that because you need to always be prepared for anything.

The Customer is Always Right
All this talk about bad security has really pulled the curtain on many companies in the industry. I remember when the thought process was "If we have a good thing, customers will want to give us money" but with all the security issues as of late it seems to have become more like "If we have a thing, customers will want to give us money".
