This is due to a bit of a public up roar that certain companies were selling on your data.
Interestingly, today Apple announced OS X Mountain Lion with a "gatekeeper" feature that as default only allows apps to be installed that have already been vetted by Apple.
Apple is constantly being described as molly coddling their customers in a negative way. Yet in one occasion where they don't, there is a public uproar.
I just found that interesting, and wanted to share my opinion on the matter.
Sure there is a lot of FUD going around regarding Gatekeeper. But there is also a lot of genuine concern regarding the treatment of the Mac/iOS/Unix development community at how this once admired platform is maturing.
As with everything, the best intentions are often abused. I fear it is no different in this situation.
