Apple admits spying with iTunes

Apple admitted collecting and transmitting information about iTunes MiniStore customers.
The store now has a warning telling you about it.

After the rouse from angry users as well as privacy advocates, Apple has now changed the installer for iTunes 0.0.2., warning users that turning on MiniStore may reveal their personal information. So when users turn on the feature they first receive a warning that information is sent to Apple, and are given the option to continue or to abort. No data is sent when the feature is turned off.

In a statement released late Wednesday, Apple acknowledged the change. Apple admits spying with iTunes - Xatrix Security
