You are a fool if you think they are the only ones. There are things like this in all mobile OS.

Yeah but Apples known for its tight restrictions on their apps, I'd expect this from Andriod but not WP7 or Apple.

Hmmmm does apple steal your phone book??? Well seeing as apple continually monitors its users locations and also removes any sense of free will or individual thought from their users then its not beyond the realms of possibility that apple has done this also

I do find that it is useful for a few apps, but this feature should be something each app has to have permission to do, just like location services are handled now
