Everything you do on your smartphone is tracked, saved and compiled by your wireless carrier. The four major U.S. carriers are taking this data and selling it on an anonymous basis to third party companies, usually advertisers. Wireless carriers aren’t the only companies making people a very profitable product. In other news, Google is launching a brand new design and new features for Gmail. New features include creating advanced search filters and an easier way to keep track of who replied during a conversation with multiple respondents. You can switch to the new design in the coming days. And finally, Samsung announced that its device lineup in 2012 takes advantage of flexible screens that lets users bend and twist the device. Flexible mobile phones will roll out first, with tablets and larger devices utilizing the technology in the future.
