Google Play's "massive oversight" in undisclosed sharing of customer data
 
Google does it again...if you use Android this is an interesting read:

The article outlined a recent policy shift at the Google Play online software and media store run for Android users, which now forwards developers the personal information of buyers, including their neighborhood and email address. The sharing of customers' data is not outlined in either Google Play's Terms of Service or in the company's privacy statement.

Interesting tidbit to notice that the story comes from "appleinsider", no?

No possibility for ulterior motives there?
