I have not been a fan of the Pre but this is just another reason to stay away from it.
You make some excellent points and I agree with them.
I have a dumb phone and a pda as I like to keep them separate and this is just another reason for doing that.
They try to bury this in their fine print and then when it gets to be known and posted on the net, the language I read indicates they have a lot of options and ways to use this information they gather from each user.
This should be mentioned to each customer prior to buying and there should be an opt out for those concerned where and how this information is used.
For me, I have nothing to hide but I also do not know how this information is used and I just do not need to have my information out there for everyone to have access to it.
It is about control and the customer keeping some of the control of where and how their information is used.
I am posting this about the Pre but it goes for any company that does this.
