For the record, I did not give them my mobile number or download the software. That software might be fine; HBG might plan to do nothing with my personal info. But they haven’t earned my trust yet, and at this rate they’re not likely to. Just visiting their site makes me want to take a bath.

When not bathing, TY4NS blogger Dan Tynan tends his snark empire at eSarcasm and says inane things on Twitter: @tynan_on_tech.
