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.

MyNameIsNot4Letter,

"What are you all talking about? Apart from the App Store (and i don't know what BlackBerry and Microsoft do), have you ever bought anything from anyone, without providing information of who you are?"

Have you ever used cash?
