blorky: (Goddam MONKEY PEOPLE!)

By and large, I have very few expectations about my privacy on the Web. I proceed with the assumption that if I've published something to Facebook (or LJ for that matter), regardless of whatever protections I put on my account, my content has it's been directly sent to the person who can cause me the most damage with that content.

However, its extremely irritating to see how many free apps for the Droid request access to information that they have no use for. For example: Fandango. It's a cellphone app that can find a movie at the right time from a location near me. Why the fuck does it need mandatory access to my contact info? Why do I not have the ability to make that (and the concomitant "mail this page to your friends" functionality) an OPTIONAL setting. For the record, no, Fandango, I don't trust you not to use my contact list info inappropriately.
