Secrets

there's been a mini-stink over the new Ministore feature in iTunes 6.0.2 that has seen trillions of geeks (dubbin' it "spyTunes") and privacy advocates throw a collective hissy fit. personally, i decided not to upgrade until the dust settled. now, it looks like it's a non-issue.

So, let's review.

1) Utterly trivial information being disclosed to the Apple store while using the application that interfaces to the Apple store is inexcusable, cause for uproar and requires immediate rectification.

2) George Bush listening to any phone conversation and reading any e-mail he damn well pleases without a warrant is a 'vital tool,' and those who object to it must be on the side of the terrorists.

I [nero's fiddle] think the idea of 'privacy' is seriously out of whack in America.
