An anonymous reader writes "From the article: 'Apple is being sued for allegedly letting mobile apps on the iPhone and iPad send personal information to ad networks without the consent of users.' Some of the apps listed are on the Android Market as well, but there is no mention of a similar problem for Google. One wonders if Apple could be persuaded to strip access to the unique phone identifiers from apps."
A followup article with an industry lawyer suggests that this lawsuit could be the first of many as users push back against privacy intrusions
by app developers and ad networks.
