EDIT 12/4/2011:

Hi InformationWeek readers! I originally deleted this comment after getting in touch with Mr. Schwartz about some items found in his original article, but removed a note about that after being made aware of the pricy lawsuit threats flung at my fellow developer. In order to protect myself, I chose to bide my time until the threats were made public, at which point there would be essentially no risk to others. I would like to thank Mr. Eckhart for voluntarily taking the risk upon himself, and the EFF for aligning with him. I did not have the protection of the EFF at the time, which influenced my decision.

I would like to note that I never "moved on" at any point - I have been continuing to look into Carrier IQ behind the scenes, and have been providing assistance as necessary to other prominent researchers.

I can be contacted regarding Carrier IQ and other issues via email at, via Twitter (@k0nane/@publik0) or via PM on For members of the media, other contact methods are available upon request.
