Ah, one more

Still nextblogging and ran into this post:

sony has announced an 'evolving walkman' that will learn certain information about its' users' taste in music, etc. kind of cool (if they do it right (which i doubt they will)), but also potentially kind of scary (if they use the technology to report back (i.e. datamine) with the info it learns about it's [sic] owner.

Frankly, after reading the article, I'm not that scared. Especially since I since the entire evening listening to my Yahoo! LAUNCHcast station, which collects my preferences and offers new songs [1] [2] based on those preferences. And you know Yahoo! is collecting all this stuff, and probably selling it.
