Still more Carrier IQ madness

Everything I read about the Carrier IQ bruhaha is way off base.

My big fear is that all the keystrokes are being recorded on the phone and held in a log. Never mind how much is downloaded to Carrier IQ or the cell service provider.

What happens if I loose my phone and someone just plugs in and reads the log? Any websites I log into and my passwords are in that log and the potential thief now has access to my BANK ACCOUNT!

That scares me a lot more than them selling my location at 10 AM Friday morning to some mythical third party.

Once again the media is watching the hole and missing the donut.
