Google under fire for sending users' information to developers
Using an email utility that has the "white list" feature has solved my unwanted email issues. I let one of my Gmail addresses forward to that address.
Most know what a white list is, but for those that don't: all email from addresses not entered on your white list is sent to where you want it sent to, trash/spam folder/your mother-in-law's inbox, etc what ever.
Google is turning out to be quite the Bill Gates with more horns and fangs monster, though.
I think Google is trying to monetize as much as possible, just like everyone on the web. the search for mo money is growing and it will never stop.
Not sure why the developers need buyer info; that said, Kenmore has my information via the warranty card, so providing detailed buyer's info is nothing new. Not sure much has changed over the years. Remember those detailed warranty cards?
I think the web will eventually be a paid service or we will have zero privacy. MS has its store to purchase applications, FB has its privacy issues, Google has its market and Apple has iTunes. With Apple--as we all know--they are the only place to purchase applications unless you JB.
iCradle to iGrave, it is the old school 'Company Store' all over again.
I am purchasing a new fountain pen and some nice paper and a roll of stamps. That said, perhaps before you use a stamp, the USPS will require a DNA sample so they can track each letter?
The devs don't like it:

I don't blame them. Depending on what info they get, with this suit happy nation it could incur some unintentional liability.
