Google "Sebastian Holst makes yoga mobile apps with his wife, a yoga instructor. The Mobile Yogi is sold in all the major mobile app stores. But when someone buys his app in the Google Play store, Holst automatically gets something he says he didn't ask for: the buyer's full name, location and email address. He says consumers are not aware that Google Inc. is sharing their personal information with third parties. No other app store transmits users' personal information to third-party developers when they buy apps, he said." Oh Google.

Err no it's not. This was first reported approximately two days ago. If it had been about Apple you would have seen frontage headlines within minutes, everywhere (for ex. the lock screen bug, where the ones concerning Android seem to get lost).
