    I got to the permissions screen on the lastfm install and realized it wanted both read AND write permission to my contacts. Why the heck should it need that? I was just expecting to be able to sey up a userid. It shouldn't need my phone list.

    Last.fm give you the option to sync contacts from last.fm

    I think too many people are paranoid :icon_eek:

    It can sync your lastfm friends with your contacts, so you can see what they've been listening to, and how "in sync" your music tastes are right in your contacts list.
