  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Saw this today, though some people here might find it interesting.

    So Bose users, are you bothered by this?

    Nope. The claim that their app is mandatory is crap.

    Not necessarily to this degree. Linking customers personal data they have on record to tracking their activities.

    Becides, "oh everyone does it" does not make it right.

    At least you have the option to block tracking cookies/scripts/etc in most browsers. Or apps can opt out of "statistics".

    tracking usage is fine sometimes, but when the data is sold on to other companies etc its wrong - especially if you cant opt out.

    Perhaps the Data Commissioner would be interested in this abuse of data collection...... or not.
