Contrary to what Microsoft's .NET spin doctors would have users believe, the software
powerhouse is not likely to dominate e-commerce the way it now rules the desktop. ".NET
will not radically change Microsoft's position within e-commerce," Giga Information Group
analyst Andrew Bartels told the E-Commerce Times. However, .NET and the Passport single

the company, according to analyst David Kathman.

Would you license your personal data to advertising platforms if you were paid directly for it?
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.
