Today we have a wide ranging discussion about collecting customer data. We talk about privacy policies, whether anyone actually reads them, and Apple’s sensitivity to privacy issues. Then the conversation turns to a discussion of what kind of information is acceptable for a developer to collect, what information should be out of bounds, and some of the difficulties of properly securing that information. We talk briefly about analytics services and how they use the data they collect, and then consider the question of what exactly customers consider an invasion of their privacy when so many are already accustomed to being tracked on the Internet.
