    Maybe you should find something a little more recent than some article nearly 2 years old? 2011? Also maybe find something not from a company whose business is selling virus scanners to protect you from this “out of control problem”?   I am sure McAfee are completely unbiased, it is not like they would make more money by causing people to be paranoid about the devices they own.
  What do you call yourselves? Apple: "The Aristocrats!"
Really? Comparing a cell phone watch from 1999 to today? Little bit of a stretch don’t you think?    By the way want to see the GREAT things Apple was doing in 1999... "Hockey puck" mouse and we all know how much of a success that was.  
  I agree, that is just too much for app developers to try and deal with. I mean who in their right mind would ever want their app to look good? Should just take all the resolutions back to a 480 x 320px at 163 ppi resolution. That way they don't have to worry about things like this any more.   Yeah, who would ever use that many GHz and cores? No one ever will create anything that could use that. It is pointless to even put something like that in place. It has been...

If you are not able to understand the process without your bad car analogy, then you probably should not be making false blanket statements about the subject.
    You need help?   Google, Yahoo, Bing, Apple, Facebook, etc. do not sell your ACTUAL personal information. It stays all in house. That information is never given to anyone. None of the advertisers see the data. The clients of these ad services buy or target segments or demographics of the ad services network. People that like and search for things such as Red Shoes, Sports Cars, or iPad. I cannot purchase Ads to be shown to only jragosta, because right now if I could I...
    As many have stated they DONT sell the personal information. It is closely guarded. That is how they make money.   As for the part about "learning everything you can about you" So does every other business in the world it is call Analytics and Marketing.   http://www.forbes.com/sites/kashmirhill/2012/02/16/how-target-figured-out-a-teen-girl-was-pregnant-before-her-father-did/   You are delusional if you don’t think Apple wants to know every single thing about you to...
What percentage of that $18 million was used to fight CISPA/SOPA?
  Exactly, without this information it would would have been harder to point the finger at iOS 6.1. Thus making it Microsoft's fault that all the servers started having issues.
