re: Android Warning: 50% Of Devices Need Patching
I think many - if not most - concerns about mobile privacy/security are blown out of proportion. The biggest concerns are are hackers going after big banks, financial institutions, and other places where sensitive personal information can be found. I don't worry so much about mobile ad networks. Airpush's new SDK, for example, was actually planned to coincide with the updated Google Developer Policy - that's in addition to following guidelines from security firm Lookout. So airpush has done itself, its users, and its industry a huge favor by being responsible for its actions in a really positive way.
