scary functionality from RIAA

got a Mac? like me? you idiot!

look this…

I got an mp3 from a friend, on skype, and it was directly tracked and iconed by the filemanager. Iconed? Yes… the filemanager has immediately searched on the internet for the album it was belonging to and has added the proper album image to it. How can it do it? Simple, digging the ID3 tags present in the audio file. I wonder who else can know that my filesystem has requested those informations…

privacy… something unknown to lots of people,
and companies, RIAA in primis

+ + + [update this morning]

@Carlo: fuck you! I was so fucking scared… @All: the icon was embedded by iTunes at the source, so no fear (maybe…) 😀
