A larger-screened device will show the world that stand-alone products-- Garmin GPS devices, Flip Video Cameras or Kindles – are feature sets. Privacy will continue to erode at a dizzying rate. Consumers will voice concerns, but ultimately the value of the new products will outweigh the loss of privacy. Source: Forbes
