If you need the shock story about privacy default setting, this is very good way to express the concern and how things as a default have changed.
The other side of the coin is that we like Free and Free requires some form of exchange. Once you have purchased something, you cannot use the same coin to buy more, you need more coins. The more you want for Free the more you need to exchange.

A more recent change was that more contact info came out under the apps developer program recently and then shut it down..
