[MTFans] Lawsuit Filed Against Apple, App Developers, for “Intrusive Tracking” - Page 4

post #31 of 62
The original article from The Wall Street Journal is fascinating, but I am pissed that Apple allows these apps in the app store.

There is no excuse for apple to 'reject' so many apps when more than half of the apps in the app store are utter crap/garbage/useless/buggy.

Apple SHOULD NOT allow this. Why should any app be allowed to send the UDID (Unique Device Identifier) number?

Yawn at the Apple hate. That's so 2001. Get over it. The company has been one of the most innovative tech companies in history and half the tech you have today wouldn't have been possible without them. So quit your QQ'ing and get a clue.

You play Angry Birds on Android? Ah, guess what, it harvests your info and sells it to ad companies. Several other game and apps do the same.

There's always ways around these things Jailbroken/rooted ROM's, for example.

Adding this to my LONG list of reasons that I have not--and will not--have, use, or buy anything Apple. I won't even use QuickTime because of it's long history of resetting itself to start with your computer every time you open it. I detest Apple's entire philosophy.

Warning: This is my opinion, which you will not change using yours.

I have my issues with Apple - mostly because they tie their non-computer devices to their specific versions of their OS. I'd have no problem with purchasing an iPod, if I could connect it to a regular style computer, and not be forced to purchase their proprietary, $3000 piece of garbage. For years, Apple was "better" because it was much less bloated and ran better than anything MS brought out - but while Apple has put their OS on the high fat diet that has made it corpulent and sluggish - MS has really scored high with Win7, which was put on a significant diet.

Google does wierd things, like they constantly fool with GMail - lately it gives me an error that I am running Internet Explorer - duh - like, it's a Windows machine that is corporate, so i have zero ability to use another browser. Can't they just make the silly error go away?

I think Google is working on jumping the shark; just like Apple jumped the shark when it started to chop device support in broad strokes in their push to sell people on their current, obsolete, feeble machines that they attempt to market now. Lets hope ChromeOS isn't as lame...

^QFT. I know someone who recently got a macbook pro that came with a 90 day trial of EVERYTHING that apple makes. We removed it and salvaged a whopping 50 gigs of space off of the HDD.

@XNine But the user shouldn't have to Jailbroken/use rooted ROM's to bypass such a thing.

Personally, don't really care. I dislike apple's policies and how they price everything thus I don't buy any of their products

What do you mean? On iOS you can install something or not, they are not forcing you to install anyting, you can also change your privacy settings for each app. They are not controlling their users they are making sure they get the best experience possible, you can also install webApps and of course there is jailbreaking. Im sure users are aware that they can only purchase from the appstore before they buy the product. You can always return your device within a couple of weeks if you are not statisfied.
