Apple's month-to-month smartphone sales appear healthy, according to data covering September to November 2013, released Tuesday by Kantar Worldpanel ComTech. However, the bigger picture is less encouraging. Year-over-year figures indicate Apple is at best treading water, with its share having declined in most major markets. Apple now claims 69.1 percent of the market in Japan, 43.1 percent in the United States, 35 percent in Australia and 30.6 percent in Great Britain.

Windows Phone is now the third largest OS across Europe with 10 percent -- more than double its share compared with last year," Sunnebo said.

Windows Phone is not duplicating that success elsewhere, however. Progress remains slow in the U.S. and China, where it has market shares of 4.7 percent and 2.7 percent, respectively.

But Apple is in trouble.

Yes -- So much of my personal data is already in the hands of advertisers anyhow; I may as well be paid for it.
Possibly -- It depends how much I would be compensated and how the data I authorize to share would be used and protected.
No -- I would not sell my personal data at any price.
