@Brian but did the clerk lift in from your device or directly, say if you used your debit card? My credit card company recently called me to ask about questionable charges. Two of them were completely unfamiliar to me. Though the charges had been blocked, the company cancelled that card and issued me a new one to use. I don't know if it bothers to trace where the card information was hacked.
Ashish, you make a good point, but I think it's only for the moment. As hacking becomes the warfare of our era, I think mobile users will get very concerned and savvy about buying security along with their next cool device.
(Of course I say that just after having my ATM card number lifted by a clerk, so perhaps I'm a little sensitive!)
@tech4people, i think this may tend to re-initiate a discourse about PC/Laptop and mobile devices. Blackeberry has the most reliable security technology for mobile phone in the world, that's been a saving grace for the company despite its hard times. What do you think of consumers behaviour as regard security, encouraging?
Well, what I think is happening is that customers are buyijg PCs but instead of updating it in a year, they will buy a Tablet and probably take 2 years or more to buy a new pc.
Did Michael Dell buy Dell because the other stakeholders wouldnt allow them to make radical decisions?
