You do research things before you state them as fact, right? Sometimes, and admittedly rarely, it looks like you don't."Apps get full SD card accessYou might have noticed starting with Android KitKat that there were some changes to how apps could access different areas of a device's storage, particularly an inserted microSD card. Developers complained about these restrictions, and Google responded in Lollipop by more or less completely opening access to inserted memory...
Google Android has not dropped SD card support, a fact I suspect Mr Dilger was well aware of when he wrote this piece.On the contrary Android Lollipop has significantly enhanced SD card security while improving usability. Of course if the author had mentioned this it would have been one less FUD-fueled talking...
I thought the lawsuit was over the undisclosed extra (and significant) headroom needed when users upgraded from iOS7 to iOS8?

The banks would obviously be aware of whatever data collection is going on so the fact there's a mention of it as a concern shows there's something going on in the background, with perhaps the banks themselves doing so as well.
