Palm Pre: spyware preinstalled

Palm Pre has some spyware preinstalled ...and you get priviledge to pay for the spying, and for the crashes. With O2 Czech announcing "great new" pricing of GPRS/UMTS data ($1 per 10 minutes, only about 240times more expensive than Vodafone Czech), that would be about $1 per crash. Be careful when GSM version comes...

And no, having "privacy policy" does not make it okay. Even spyware comes with encrypted EULAs...
