Palm Collects Location Data From Pre Users

Joey Hess reports that WebOS periodically sends Palm your location, which apps you use, and crash logs. The crash logs I understand (although that should be opt-in). But I don’t understand why Palm would collect location information. Dieter Bohn has more at PreCentral.

Update: Palm has issued a statement acknowledging that they collect location information.
