If you are freaked out by the idea of electronics privacy invasion, this might make you scream: Palm Pre developer Joey Hess says that the Palm Pre uploads information to Palm daily, including: your location, the apps that you have used and the time that they were in use, app crash logs, the list of installed apps.
In the end, Palm should at least provide a way to opt-out, or to check what was sent and when. I don’t think that their goal is to “spy” on their users, but it would be appropriate to properly warn users about this sensitive subject.
