Why this should bother you is because they don't have a right to track this information. Regardless of what it is used for, gathering this information is illegal without your knowledge or consent. /discussion

This has been reported awhile ago.
Source #1
Source #2

Dating back to June 21/22, 2010.

I honestly think it's completely absurd, unconstitutional, and flat out immoral. I don't want anyone tracking me for any reason, regardless if I have nothing to hide or not. Leave me be and live in peace, I don't want to be tracked every second of the day.

However, what if it's for tracking down the phone if it's lost/stolen? Perhaps they use it for that information, in which, you actually, technically have agreed to let them use in exchange for finding your stolen/lost device.

Just saying, that may be one possible explanation. Do I agree with tracking people? No. We're not cattle...

You guys do realize that ALL cell phone companies keep track of where you are by tower triangulation, it's not that anyone's trying to 'track' you down, it's that that data is valuable for dozens of aspects of the cell phone industry. I for one, don't care whether my logs are on my computer or AT&T's.

This kind of argument is what could lead to an Orwellian future.

I'm sure you don't have much to hide on your computer, would it be right if you only had one folder than the Government couldn't monitor at any time? Sure, you may not have anything outside of that folder to hide, but does it mean its not an invasion of privacy?

When I get an iPhone I will be sure to jailbreak it and remove any tracking software from my device. No one has a right to track me and I'll be damned if I let them.
