To be honest, not everyone wants to listen to the music you listen to, nor the music I listen to. And that's fine. I wouldn't want someone blasting their music through a boom box when I do not care to listen to it.
Yeah, of course. It's still fun for me to poke fun at though, mostly because they take like to say, "No, no, we're not like the other guys. We do the same as the other people, but we're not like them." etc etc.
Paraphrased from within the link, "We have a lot of privacy information, we just don't connect it together." How flattering Apple, you know, this reminds me of (insert country here) that is collecting a ton of (insert commodity here). They don't plan to use it of course. They just like collecting it, and doing nothing interesting with it. No, nothing special all. Isn't that right, Apple? Or, should I say, Big BrApple?!?! (Terrible joke, I know)

Console producers slap a computer together, mass-produce it and sell it under a price tag. With this they can corner a series of games exclusively for that console alone, so if you want to play a certain game, you'll have to buy the console. And if you just happen to own a console/PC where the game was not originally designed to play on, you'll probably end up with a buggy game.
But the biggest issue is that most console games treat their player as if they couldn't handle the concept of pushing a button. You think most of these horridly generic games would be intuitive as to how to play. There are many more reasons why consoles ruin videogames, it's just this awful generifying of games that all have the same exact issue that is not necessary yet included in every game. Oh well consoles, if you think I don't understand the concept of moving with an analog stick, then I doubt I could've actually turned the console on myself.
Consoles and games in general were not made to advertise. The fact that they have to point it out sounds like they're doing something terribly malicious with the console, which is not surprising to say the least.
Regardless if this is a good idea with good implementation, people will find a way to get data openPDS is trying to hide. And it sounds like people who use this will only store more 'sensitive' information; digging themselves in a deeper hole.
Back about four years ago or so when I was thirteen, I got a book "C++ all in one desk reference for dummies." I didn't have a compiler or the internet to get one, but that did not deter me from trying to learn how to program.
