my iphone is stalking me
by now i am sure everyone's heard the latest scandal - iphone's tracking you everywhere you go!
honestly though ... this really doesn't bother me.
its a lot like how facebook and googlemail know where you were last time you signed in..
in fact, a lot of people like the security these things offer (well - they like to know if people in california are illegally logging into their accounts)
but isn't this all technically the same thing? sorry people - but if you log into an account - any account - from any computer in the world - your location has been linked to your identity. and you are fooling yourself if you think they aren't storing this information.
since this information isn't available in real time (unless you download this app to stalk people on your phone) i personally don't view it as that much of a safety issue.
so i guess i am wondering how much this bothers you? enough to turn in your iphone and turn off your facebook? stop using email?
