Google/Android/Apps/Devs ALL include notices, and not in moderation i might add, about asking for permission to use location data(for any number of reasons)..

Not to mention People, on their own, commonly use Flicker and Twitter on their devices..both track location data(see the 'Creppy' Program to track locations of twitter and flicker users)... and lets not forget Facebook Places and Foursquare(both pretty much only are funtional on mobile device even)...

So 1) people give away their location all the time anyways, giving their consent as they do it.. 2)I dont know how apple/iPhone runs, sooo. 3)Its tiring to watch lawmakers, who have no clue how this stuff really works, try to fight for end users... 4) heres more tax money going to w...

Im thinking this eric guy is an iPhone fanboy/troll. Anything that makes apple look bad he makes a point to mention android is just as guilty even though everyone knows otherwise.

So f'in what!!! 🙄
Why the paranoia over location????
Does everyone have something to hide?? Unless you are a politician that is canvassing the local Super 8 motel for hookers, the local drug dealer hiding the stash, think you are a black-ops spy, get over it!
No one is going to come knocking at your door while your playing X-Box 360 or hacking.
Anytime you go on Twitter, etc., you give up your location.
So if you are worried about a phone, worry about something more important like how you all are going to rub off the big "L" stamped on your heads for "LOSER"!!!!!!!! 🤣
