    Now that smart phones are now mini-computers, and connected to the
    internet, we're starting to see the same problems associated with PC's.-
    freezing, crashing, bugs, and all the rest of it. (sigh) I wonder how
    much of it google is to blame for their constant sticky nosing into what
    we do?

    **** all basically.

    Anything more complex is likely to have more potential problems.

    Cnt+Alt+Del no longer works.

    Cheaper data, cheaper phones, more apps, you won't be able to get into a public toilet soon, unless you swipe your way in.

    Cheers Don...

  4. The spectacular growth of Google is something to be worried about.

    They have their tentacles in every part of the web, every web page you go
    to.



    I'm glad their Facebook copy (google +) hasn't taken off, plus some other
    failures.



    But they still have:-



    Google books

    Google maps

    Google blogs

    Google mail

    Google car

    Google chrome

    Google glasses

    Google...etc



    A while ago there was outrage that there was tracking data kept by Google,
    when everyone became aware they went into their accounts and switched it off
    ..



    With Android phones you can't opt out, they have your phone number and other
    bits of data identifying you plus GPS tracking of the places you've been to.



    They have become a bigger monster than Microsoft was in its heyday.



    The web should be kept free of corporate monsters that claim "do no evil"
    but are undermining our freedoms everyday with their underhanded
    surveillance online.



    Support OPEN SOURCE, support Firefox mobiles, I'll be definitely buying one
    if they make it to OZ.

    Are you sure? I have an android box with a wireless keyboard and
    control/alt /delete works does work.

    It also has lock ups and freezes.

    Yep, and not to mention all the fancy features they come up with has a lot
    to do with sticking up their nose into what we do with their operating
    systems.
