Disable iTunes 6.0.2's MiniStore

Yup, it's spying, because they didn't ask for the info, or even sneak a phrase into the User Agreement saying you now agree to share the info.

Imagine if a store at the mall used the parking lot security cameras to see what you're carrying -- to get an idea what you bought from other stores -- made a list based on those observations, and sent you coupons and offers related to the stuff they saw you buy.

That's fair. The parking lot is their space, and you're carrying your shopping bags across it.

Imagine instead that the store's employee goes through your purse or wallet when you're not looking, finds receipts for things you bought, and sends you coupons, etc.

That's not fair, because it's your purse or wallet. Your own space. Like the space on your computer.
