The Pandora Probe

Have a question? Agree, disagree,
with me? Leave me your opinion.

Internet radio service Pandora
announced Monday that it has
been served a subpoena as part
of a federal grand jury
investigation into the information
being gathered/shared by popular
iPhone and Android smartphone
applications.

"We were informed that we are
not a specific target of the
investigation, and we believe
that similar subpoenas were
issued on an industry wide
basis to the publishers of
numerous other smartphone
applications," Pandora.

The probe surfaces as
regulators/policymakers
consider stepping-down on
security and data privacy.

Accidents and breaches have
pulled more attention to the
issue.

Pandora, in its revised filing
to the Securities and Exchange
Commission, expressed concern
that suggested privacy controls
like the proposed "do not track"
or "opt-in" mechanisms could
impair its ability to collect
data on its listeners, purpose
of its ad-supported business
model.

"Restrictions on our ability to
collect, access and harness
listener data- would in turn
limit our ability to stream
personalized music content to
our listeners and offer targeted
advertising opportunities to our
advertising customers, each of
which are critical to the success
of our business," Pandora
explained.

About Me

Marcella Glenn is a freelance writer who has written news reports, worked in an office, reviewed movies, published a newsletter and had her novel, "Grave Street House," published. She, too, is a Writing Consultant as well as a Personal Coach.


She has tried to go down some of life's other paths. A few paths were a mail-order business, the publishing of a pen-pal newsletter and selling plastic-ware. Only, she was back writing before realizing what she was doing.


She'd critique titles, paragraphs, news reports, that no one submitted to her. She'd stop herself, eventually. Marcella Glenn seemed to be enjoying the act of writing. This is how she knew writing was more than a hobby.


Let it be a lesson in your life too. Is writing calling your name? Or, acting? Teaching? Are you interested in engineering? Have the courage to go for your dreams. Simply, believe in yourself.
