Interesting story on companies selling your internet data without your permission (or your permission is buried in the ToS). Really scary.

I never, ever, ever read the ToS agreements. They're way too long. They're probably also too complicated but I don't know since I never read them. For all I know Apple owns my liver.

Or they can turn you into a human centapad (South Park reference, which really fits this thread)

I don't either, and it's so long that I doubt all but contract lawyers read them But the fact that in the ToS it says that they have the right to sell your information, your location and so forth is a scary preposition. and legally you have no recourse if it's buried in there.
