Interesting, indeed. It doesn't hold much water though (which the article itself alludes to) because you can be overly cautious in either of the given circumstances and be a completely mindless drone in the other. Alternatively, like myself, you could open yourself up to Malware until there's something worth being cautious about.
Like the credit info I have at a bunch of e-tailers I shop at.
