    Of course this was bound to happen sometime. When it comes down to it you can't trust many companies or any at all in regards to how they can sell are personal data which is easier to mine than bitcoin. I'm glad more and more people are learning about security in the tech world. Which is why we hear so much stuff about flaws being found and fixed or spy chips like the one mentioned here. This is where open source hardware and software is a must in my opinion.

    It's interesting to note that all the companies involved have denied important parts of that bloomberg story. To some extent I can see why they're denying that they could be compromised like this, but some of the things they're denying seem to go beyond that desire.
