BTW - True story -  A guy is sitting in NYC Central Park talking on his cell phone when up runs a criminal and grabs his cell phone.  The criminal looks in disgust at the flip phone and says"  What a Flip-Phone" and throws it on the ground and then runs away!  True story.  Even the criminals don't want flip phones.  I'll keep mine!  8->

No Android user here - "hell no" - I'm not going to make it easy for them to track me and archive data on me.  I got an old flip phone with a battery I can physically remove from the device - I don't need no Android/smart phone.

'Master key' to Android phones uncovered

A "master key" that could give cyber-thieves unfettered access to almost any Android phone has been discovered by security research firm BlueBox.

The bug could be exploited to let an attacker do what they want to a phone including stealing data, eavesdropping or using it to send junk messages.

The loophole has been present in every version of the Android operating system released since 2009.

Google said it currently had no comment to make on BlueBox's discovery.

New Android trojan nearly impossible to remove

IT security firm Kaspersky claims it has discovered the "most sophisticated" Android trojan yet.

Identified by Kaspersky as "Backdoor.AndroidOS.Obad.a", the mobile menace can send SMS to premium-rate numbers, download other malware and install them on the infected device, as well as send malware to other devices via Bluetooth, and remotely perform commands in the console.
