Why do you think they want that information? Sure sure, I can agree that these apps that are just games shouldn't need your info, but the idea behind
the gathering of info in most of these apps is to better serve you. It takes what you like, what you enjoy, and then presents to you ads etc. relating
to your own personal interests. Is that not helpful? Technology is not entirely evil! A representative from Google Play has never called my dad out of
the blue and was like "hey, just found your number on this idiots phone, thought I'd see what's up".
We are moving in a direction where life is becoming more efficient and accommodating and we shouldn't be afraid of progress. Yes Big Brother is
always watching us, but your phone, laptop, GPS all allow that in the first place, and if a company offers you a service and requires some info from
you they shouldn't be put on trial. Again, you have the choice to let them!
