Disable iTunes 6.0.2's reporting of listening habits
Authored by: pink on Jan 11, '06 07:56:51AM

This is not only a breach into our privacy, it is also a very, very dumb move by apple. Who says this thingy does not only submit information about the song playing but also about your complete Library (number of songs, number of songs coming in over time etc.) ? Very handy to spot the bad guys gathering music from "bad-karma" sources (as Steve might put it). This very probably is not what it does, but just the vague idea of such a thing happening could make people run away in crowds from iTunes. And Apple being so silent about the thing does not improve matters.
