Mobile: Bloatware To Be More Bloated

Source:  Forbes.

Short and simple:  if you get an Android device from AT&T and Verizon (probably others as well), you're in for an unpleasant surprise.  See, an annoying company with just as much as an annoying name called Digital Turbine created a service that will allow carries to send you bloatware after they've sold you the phone. 

So, prepared to be "hacked" by your carriers.  And what's worse is that we cannot tell how dangerous this is since we don't know if the apps that are being pushed to our devices are legitimate or not.
