More on Data Privacy

I just saw a TV advertisement where Microsoft (as part of the "Scroogled" attack campaign) is going after Google for not respecting data privacy.  So I guess, in Microsoft's opinion at least, I am not the only consumer out there that considers confidentiality of purchase information to be a hot button issue.

From the latest Scroogled campaign:

"When you buy an Android app from the Google app store, they give the app maker your full name, email address and the neighborhood where you live. This occurs without clear warning every single time you buy an app.

If you can't trust Google's app store, how can you trust them for anything?"
