Okay maybe it’s just me. Maybe because I have an android phone and noticed that I could opt out of sending my data. Why is it such a big uproar about our smartphones tracking us? I mean I understand some people are all about it being a privacy issue and thinks that the info could be used for harm but how do you think your phone knows the best restaurants around you anywhere you go? Or what about the weather? How do you think our phone locates where you are anywhere around the country and updates the weather application to tell you how hot or cold it is there?
What about third party apps like foursquare? How do you think they know where you are? Bottom line, I think that people are overreacting to the situation. Again, this may be because my android phone let’s me opt out if I choose and if I choose to opt in, it tells me that my location and information is being tracked and could be sent back to Google. Chill people. You already overshare as is so why are you getting mad because the company is tracking your dumb ass? That GPS isn’t just there to guide you home.
I’m just sayin’
