Steve Jobs, speaking at the D8 Conference, thinks Apple is naive, because one day they read that Flurry analytics detected them testing new iPhone and iPad devices by getting developers to put code in their apps that send geolocation and other data from customers back to Flurry. They don't ask customers for consent, violates Apple's privacy rules. It "pissed Apple off".
Even with IadsApple won't block other advertisers but they've decided analytics can only be used for advertising, not to be sent to 3rd parties for sale and for leaking Apple technology. (Steve was fiery mad!)
No excuse not to ask a customer for consent to send private data. Maybe after Apple calms down they'll talk to some of these analytics firms, but it won't be today.
Video after the break! (Again, fiery mad!)
