Apple has conceded some ground to privacy advocates alarmed over an iTunes feature the company touted only a short time ago at Macworld. The service, called MiniStore, makes recommendations on songs currently in the software's active playlist. Some consumer advocates protested when it was realized the feature was included in the latest iTunes by default and that it transmitted data associated with iTunes' customers unique ID number back to Apple.

"Apple Backs Down in Privacy Flap"
Truly amazing! It's like you guys and Cnet love to spin negative Apple headlines. In order for one to "back down" there must be some sort of fight. This was not the case. When the privacy concerns were brought to their attention, they did the honorable thing and made a change. Quickly. How fast would Microsoft taken to effect the same change. How fast did Sony react? Really, you guys should just stick to reporting the TRUTH instead of putting your own editorial slants on things to appease to the lowest common denominator who wants to see Apple fail.
