Moto Maker, Motorola's online tool for designing and customizing the Moto X, is now offering to import iPhone users' contacts and calendar data. During the design process, Moto X customers can choose to enter their AppleID/iCloud credentials and Motorola will port the data to the customer's Android/Google account and install the data on the Moto X before it ships to the customer. This way, when the device arrives, it will already be synced and ready to go out of the box.

While this may

seem like a great idea from a sales perspective it's also yet another way companies can access your information. The whole point of creating an anonymous user ID and secure password is to prevent anyone from accessing your information. Would you be as trusting if Motorola was asking for your debit card PIN? Probably not. So why trust them with access to an account that might be linked to that same debit card for iTunes and App Store purchases? Also don't forget, Motorola is owned by Google. And we all know some of the things Google does with personal information.
...we also know some of the things that Apple does with personal information; giving it to anyone, regardless of your allegiance to one smartphone manufacturer or another, is risky business.

the only additiional risk you're taking on by doing this...
