Re: "Infobesity"
@mp: Additionally, Netflix relies upon a vendor's cloud (Amazon's, actually), whereas Amazon has its own.

Re: "Infobesity"
@Joe:  One thing I hope you concur is the fact that it is in the end up to the end user to be aware and not take anything for granted.   Not easy--is it?

Re: "Infobesity"
The only thing I would note for all is this:  "Cavaet Emptor" (Buyer be aware).   As we're dealing with the wild wild west, the only way we can stay ahead of the curve to is to maximize the privacy settings by the majors while just being vigilant.     How effective this is itself an open question.

Re: "Infobesity"
As someone who did a "test run" on netflix, I was not frankly too impressed--I know I am the very rare exception to the rule--and what you've noted is what Amazon is doing as well which I find to be a lot more prevalent.    Netflix also has a long-term challenge before it that Amazon does not have--it is pretty much a "one product" company--isn't it?

Re: "Infobesity"
@mhh: The African market hasn't matured quite enough yet.  Asia is still developing; off the top of my head, you could probably count on your hands the number of Asian nations with data-privacy laws (at most, you'd have to take off a shoe).

Meanwhile, in the US, expect more and more agencies looking to get more and more involved in adding regulations and laws on top of regulations and laws for added redundancy so as to increase their power.  Best case in point: The FTC. (link) (another link)

Re: "Infobesity"
@mhh: I'm not so sure about the idea of introducing random noise (do you have a link or other source on how this is being done?), but in general, studies have repeatedly shown that anonymized data can be readily de-anonymized.

Of course, where the liability and culpability is concerned, generally "reasonable efforts" and "custom" are at play where statutes and regulations are silent and/or leave room for ambiguity.  At least, in the US.  The EU and other extra-US jurisdictions are completely different animals.

(Disclaimer: Not legal advice.  I am not to be trusted.)

Re: "Infobesity"
Netflix seems to have changed their business model some time ago from making recommendations based upon what it genuinely thinks the viewer would enjoy to making recommendations based upon what it wants the viewer to consume (esp. Netflix-original content) -- and instead using the data on what people like in helping it develop its own original content.  (For instance, true story: Netflix's House of Cards series was developed because a lot of people liked the original British House of Cards miniseries and a lot of people liked Kevin Spacey movies.)

Re: "Infobesity"
ah, yes, @joe - our resident lawyer and master cartoon captioner. Data privacy is going to be a big legal issue (actually it already is), and different cultural stances on how to handle privacy may make datacenter and network planning a bit tricky. And the privacy policies of Asia and Africa haven't solidified yet...

Re: "Infobesity"
Interesting link.. I'm not sure that really answers the concern, but I'm sure there will be lawsuits in the future that will!

I suppose companies will argue that anonymized data isn't subject to privacy laws because.. the data is anonymized... and individuals may need to prove some kind of injury that isn't hypothetical but tangible.

Apple has deep pockets, so I'm sure someone will go after them....
