Google Play: App Ecosystem or Security Risk?

Just saw this over on AppleInsider:

“[A story run by Australia’s] outlined a recent policy shift at the Google Play online software and media store run for Android users, which now forwards developers the personal information of buyers, including their neighborhood and email address. The sharing of customers’ data is not outlined in either Google Play’s Terms of Service or in the company’s privacy statement.”

Um, it’s stories like this that make me glad I don’t use a Google Android phone as my day-to-day device.
