Why are people freaked by this?
Authored by: wgscott on Jul 08, '06 05:28:51AM

I don't want Apple phoning home without my permission. I don't like services started on my computer without knowing about them. The mail and web servers aren't started by default. I never use widgets and hate them. I don't need this service.

But on a more fundamental level, I worry that Apple it testing the waters for spying on its customers in a very Redmondesque way.

I don't like the fact that ATT logs this and all my internet traffic to the NSA either, despite the fact that I am not a terrorist.

I'm happy to share information on my terms, not on the government's terms, and not on the Apple corporation's terms.
