Apps group launches data effort: The Application Developers Alliance is getting together with Yahoo, Google, AT&T, Intel and Blackberry for a new working group. The effort will focus on data driven innovation and the “Internet of things,” the system of wirelessly connected devices like refrigerators and cars, it said.

“Developers are using data to build products that make us smarter, healthier, and more efficient, but with these innovations comes the need to ensure data collection is transparent and secure,” Jon Potter, the trade group’s president, said in a statement. “The Data, Analytics, and Security Working Group will develop best practices for data collection and work to promote innovative data contributions to commerce and society.”
