comment How to run an SFTP server on my CM9 RC2 Galaxy Nexus
@RichardBorcsik You would be surprised. At the office, WiFi is so overloaded by the number of devices and amount of traffic that it frequently simply dosn't work. At home I'm surrounded by a large number of other WLANs which apparently cause interference (many more networks than RF channels) so I get 1-2MB/s. Can't wait for USB speeds...although Lie's comment is valid: I don't really need sftp, just ftp over USB.

comment Privacy level with an anonymous account?
Indeed, it can be seen as 2 different questions. I hope this doesn't prevent people from answering. As for the law suit, I am obviously unable to go into details of a suite in the USA, but the fact that someone is betting their time and money because they are convinced personal data is being leaked was strong enough for me to reference the article. It is by no means the only such article, by the way.

comment How to force Gmail/Android to request password every time for google account
@Al: lots of people make exactly the same decision because choice is extremely limited and it appears as the lesser of two evils. That doesn't mean people love the loss of privacy or control built into every Android device. If you need a smartphone, Android is obviously, hands-down the lesser evil. If your question is "why would you buy a smartphone at all?", than you're stepping onto a slippery slope: you could just as easily say "why would you like to use a phone?" because someone e.g. doesn't like his phone company knowing who he talks to and what about...

comment is it possible to disable Google remote kill switch?
@Chris: you speak as if it it is widely accepted as absolutely fine and good that a 3rd party (Google, Apple, whoever) be allowed to access your device in your pocket without your knowledge. It is in fact a very controversial subject and given the option, I would be the first to expel them from any device I own and risk "potential hackers". If it was hackers they were worried about, they could have decided to send notifications, e.g. "you seem to be using app X which we consider spyware: remove (yes/no)?". But they didn't, did they? Anyway, user3346's question is valid...
