It turns out that Palm wants your data – as much as possible! The Pre sends the following information home daily:
- Which apps you’ve used and for how long
- App crash logs
- Installed apps
More and more companies (Apple, Google, to name a few) feel they have ownership of the devices they sell you, and feel that collecting this kind of private data is fine.
Of course, some of the apps on the phone need this kind of data in order to work (eg apps that show things close to you in Google Maps) but does Palm need this data too?
