iTunes MiniStore now asks for your permission
We're happy that Apple has now decided to turn off the iTunes MiniStore by default when you install and run iTunes 6.0.2. Advocates worried about data that the MiniStore was sending back to the Apple mother ship will be slightly appeased that Apple has added a warning pop down message at the bottom of the iTunes window. The message warns that data will be sent to Apple, but that Apple will not store said data.
Personally, I think most advocates are slightly delusional if they think that Apple wasn't collecting your listening preference data before. I'm not sure this makes the idea of a data logging MiniStore any less offensive however.
