Rob & Kim, you are welcome to share as much personal information as you wish to this site, Pandora, or any other of your choosing. But if a website or service is sharing personal information with third parties, wouldn't you like to know? Don't you think a person has a right to know?

Rob- I totally agree. And did not this blog just ask us for information before we could post. Everyone wants something.

You don't think people assumed that when they were giving Pandora that information when they signed up?

Most people concerned about privacy just give them fake information. The phone UID is really only the sketchy part, as ad networks can use information from their various partners to aggregate even more information based on that.
