I suppose by then, we won't have phones. They'll be caged up separately D:

Cool, worry about all this other stuff and let's divert you from the fact we can track you! Yay!!

Google only tracks you if you give them permission to.
I keep posting this and it keeps being ignored.

Thinking about it, if i'm going to caged up like an animal in some conspiracy future... then a mobile phone tracking me go for a poo is really the least of my worries.

I can't tell if that is a sarcastic joke or an ironic opinion.

The phone tracking you is part of the social problem regarding privacy that will potentially lead to your caging, in this made up scenario that has real world implications.

If we're going to be caged in the future, this guy running around building cages is the least of my worries!

Implausible joke shunts issue, story at 10.

I don't expect people to subscribe, but at least talk about an obviously real issue. There is plenty to discuss with real implications. I wish people could do more than put their tinfoil hats on, or snatch someone's tinfoil hat off.

Both are rather tired.

LOL at people ranting about impositions on our freedom, sacrificing safety for personal privacy/freedom, talking about conspiracies, drinking "kool-aid," tracking citizens, the potential of using these location logs for some sort of advanced technique on targeting someone more precisely in some sort of criminal attempt, having our rights infringed upon...

This is NOT some government-imposed logging to track our every location as citizens. It's a privately-sold device that you have the ability to choose whether to use or not use. If you don't like what they're doing, don't use their device. Don't agree to the terms of service and don't use the service. You have the right not to, so it's not some infringement on our personal rights. All you people up in arms about this situation, go and write a letter of complaint to the manufacturer, open up a class-action law(l)suit and do something about it instead of quoting Benjamin Franklin regarding impositions on personal rights and safety, or just stop talking about it. Whining about this in an internet forum and not doing a thing about it is no different than those of us that don't give a rat's ass if a device manufacturer wants to know where we've been using our device.

If you don't like what they are doing, it needs to be discussed as well as addressed.

If everyone stops using things because they invade privacy, the ultimate result will be the same as if they didn't care in the first place. Discouraging public debate on issues of privacy is retarded, and besides expressing your frustration at the way the debate is presented, I'm not sure it serves any purpose at all.

Both sides of the fence are spewing inflated opinions like their stuff don't stink. Things like this need a rational discussion, which most people seem incapable of.

I completely understand ones rights are important and should be maintained. But, when people like kush talk about everything being a conspiracy, where we're all going to be caged like animals in the future, well, it's all rather comical.

We live in a good world compared to a lot places, some people forget just how fortunate we are.
