What, Apple collects everything you do?
I thought only Google, Microsoft and the NSA did that.

Your call history is something your cell provider is already handing over. Making a stink about call syncing, something Apple has been open about, is just click bait.

The thing is the cell/service provider collects that information partly for legal reasons, in many places they have to. Which is somewhat understandable as in cases it can help prove things like someone did or did not contact someone else. Perhaps to look into harassment accusations etc etc..

As for the likes of Apple (or Google, Microsoft...) they have no business collecting that. Other than them making it their business to obtrude themselves into private information for their own gains.

If such privacy intruding "features" were opt-in and completely optional, that would be a somewhat different matter.

Also just because X is going something considered negative, doesn't make it okay for Y to be doing it. That is in no way any kind of defense or excuse.

If the facts are against you, argue the law. If the law is against you, argue the facts. If the law and the facts are against you, pound the table and yell like hell.
