    Google's Gmail controversy is everything people hate about Silicon Valley
    Developers blaming you for not knowing about data collection is why it’s so hard to trust tech right now.

    OK, so I normally don't read privacy policies, ToS, etc. I assume, regardless of what they say or don't say, that they may retain any and all information that I provide, or that they can collect.

    I just make sure not to give them anything that I don't want them to have.

    That is just sick.

    And what about Apple and its stance as a guardian of privacy? Why hasn't it booted such apps from its store?
