In reply to Mark W. Vigoroso
A comparison of Amazon to Wal-Mart is pointless. Yes the perception of Wal-Mart as a thug is not doubt very true. On the other hand, Amazon does not need to try to price match them. The product lines that the two retailers offer do not even overlap. Wal-Mart sells rock bottom cheap crap for the most part. You cannot get yourself a Hitachi 3HP 1/2 inch router at Wal-Mart. While at Amazon, you can order one of those from the Tool Crib of the North. If you choose to order music from Wal-Mart, be sure it is not on their "banned" list of recordings. I am sure the Amazon hosted Borders will surely be able to accommodate you. Try to buy brand name clothing from Wal-Mart, or a high quality watch. Nix that. I have watched the gradual disappearance of almost every other retail option *except* Wal-Mart from the area where I live, only aggravating my freedom of choice, and I'm only 55 miles outside of New York City.

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.
