    There is a lot of interesting information in this article from the WSJ about how your personal data is being used and/or collected. The article mentions popular Apps like Pandora. Almost half of the 50 iPhone and 50 Android Apps tested collected some kind of data without the users knowing.

    Big Brother is watching.

    Make sure the permissions make sense for the Apps you are installing. Otherwise, what can you do? I like Pandora.

    I lead a boring life, yet I still wear a tin foil hat when it comes to Big Brother. I do realize though that Google probably knows more about me than my neighbors do.

    It's funny because a few days before this article was posted (and the millions that followed it lol) I was listening to a friends Pandora (on his iPhone) and noticed that the ad that came on for some dating service was specific in mentioning "helping you to find the right guy!" Now he is gay, but I was rolling on the floor laughing when I heard that and was wondering how his phone "knew" he might be looking for the "right guy." Now I know!
