Your apps are spying on you

Is anyone surprised by this story in the Wall Street Journal, "Your Apps Are Watching You" (18 December, 2010). It begins: "Few devices know more personal details about people than the smartphones in their pockets: phone numbers, current location, often the owner's real name—even a unique ID number that can never be changed or turned off..."

I was dismayed to see Paper Toss as one of the offenders they looked into :(
