Mobile Security: Physical Location Tracking

Brad Yale
On the level of global commerce, we are addicted to devices. By the start of 2015, it is estimated there will be 3 billion Android devices in circulation around the world. Of those, there are roughly 19,000 distinct devices in operation. On the same accord, there are roughly 550 million active iOS devices globally with another few hundred million being phased out.

This conclusion is easy to draw yet, it only skims the surface of the true issue at hand.  

Whatever you think of the materials leaked, the larger issue at play in "The Snappening" is how the public relates to, understands and uses public Internet architectures. If anything, "The Snappening" should serve as a beacon call for greater Internet security practice enlightenment.
