Apple pollutes data about you to protect your privacy. But it might not be enough


To privacy advocates who continue to use Google Services, or carry a generic uncloaked Android: should we do as you say, or do as you do?

Surely it depends if you do so knowingly?

I support the right to privacy, and also have a gmail account. But I use that knowing Google can read all my email if it so desires; but as that's an informed choice I don't see the problem. (I see it as the price for the convenience of Gmail).

The issue for me is when people don't realise or understand the implications of their actions.

Oh, +1 for Owncloud too, never liked the idea of Dropbox but the convenince of contact/calender/file sync whilst still having full control over your data is marvellous.
