Non Issue or Overblown?
Authored by: bakalite on Jan 12, '06 12:10:40AM

I think the article over at BoinBoing pretty much nailed it.

I still think Apple screwed up on this one. I don't think they are sinister, they simply didn't think ahead far enough. Letting you opt out of the mini store while telling you what it does is not that much to code.

Also, as I've said before, once they are gathering the info nothing prevents them from storing it in the future. Not that they would, not with Jobs saying they won't, but they could.

In general, Apple needs to be a bit more proactive when it comes to problems. It's good for the consumer, and it's good for business in the long run.
