comment How to simulate DDoS attacks from the Internet?
Just to remember, in case the ISP chokes traffic, the (D)DOS attack is sucessful in the sense, that it rendered your server unreachable, even if it WOULD HAVE handled the additional traffic.

comment Entering passwords at public computers
@Andrey With Gmail, you can also store a cookie on any considered safe computer ("Stay signed in"), so that you could recover your account from there, once you lost your phone.

comment How do I report a vulnerability to a large organization that doesn't believe it has a problem?
If they don't care about what you say they might as well not care about your data anyway. Can you switch to a more caring organization?

comment A thought experiment about obfuscating the location of a smartphone when it is in use, is it possible?
OK, I think this boils down to the question from whom you want to hide/obfuscate your location. It will certainly not work for any agencies, not from your mobile carrier, and probably not from your boss when it's a company owned phone. But you have good chances it works for anyone not knowing your mobile phone number or not having the possibility to trace it.

See question (and answers) of security.stackexchange.com/q/12659/5541 for a good explanation of the tracing part of the question.

Also, in your scenario, you could also change Passwords (and the storage of it), if you feel at a certain point in the future, that they are not save anymore.

comment Can I avoid DNS spoofing by typing the IP address?
@D3C4FF: I would guess the OP does that by getting the IP's first at home, then abroad, using the IP's
