    Why u need to root/jailbreak your devices √

    Korean police raid Google over mobile data: report

    By Jung-Ah Lee

    SEOUL (MarketWatch) -- South Korean police raided Google Inc.'s Korea unit Tuesday to investigate allegations the U.S. Internet search giant has been illegally collecting data on the locations of mobile phone users in the country, Yonhap News Agency reported.

    The report came just a few days after South Korea's telecommunicat ion regulator, the Korea Communications Commission, said it sent a list of inquiries to Apple Inc.'s (AAPL) Korea unit to clarify its collection of location data on iPhone and iPad users in the Asian country.

    Google Korea wasn't immediately available for comment.

Moreover, since he is aware, however dimly, that his opinions are not rational, he becomes furious when they are disputed."

    This was in Korea where I'm sure they have different consumer protetction rights. Google could care less if we root our devices. Its the data providers like AT&T, VZW, T-Mo, and Sprint that want to stop us from rooting.

    Governmental Bodies for Consumer Protection in e-commerce besides the KCPB

    The Ministry of Finance and Economy (MOFE) - the main Ministry in charge of consumer protection Policies in Korea: to issue a national consumer policy package which was put forth by related ministries and agencies every year.
    The Fair Trade Commission (FTC): to regulate fraudulent labeling and advertising, to crack down on fraud and unfair marketing practices, and to make and distribute standard terms of contracts.
    The Ministry of Commerce, Industry and Energy (MOCIE): to encourage businesses' self-regulatory practices and to introduce codes of conduct.
    The Ministry of Information and Communication (MIC): to protect consumers' privacy.
    The Ministry of Justice (MOJ): to resolve jurisdiction and applicable legal issues.

    These are the same rights afforded to any democratic nation, the fact is Google has been illegally collecting data on the locations of mobile phone / Tablet users on a worldwide basis and stealing our contacts to sell to its interests.

    Data Providers are not the concern in this case, we know what they are doing and how rooting affects them.

    Money is meaningless for likes of google now, as data is now key. It's all about viewing data as though it were capital or labour. A raw material for business.

    We haven't the time or resources to police these multinational conglomerates from doing whatever they like.

    Basically, what i am saying is your information on your phone/tablet is not secure unless u take drastic steps ( like rooting ) to protect your "personal" valuable information.

    Many apps do the same thing. Pandora is one of the biggest resellers of info yet it is one of the most popular apps. Our info is out there whether we like it or not and rooting has nothing to do with it nor will it protect us
