Yea, I read about that afterwards too.

Interesting scenarios and possibilities I thought....in regards to potential security breaches.

So many things to be cautious of with the flow and accessibility of data nowadays.

The 60 Minutes report was really eye opening.  I hope the government doesn't allow either of these companies onto our data networks.
