We Need This Law
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...

Other than cookies in your browser or maybe an encrypted cache on your phone (depending on how youÃ¢â‚¬™ve set it up) that's pretty much it. It pushes data so far upstream that you basically become a face in a huge crowd - sort of a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœsafety in numbers thingÃ¢â‚¬™. Sure someone can analyze your habits, purchases etc. but thatÃ¢â‚¬™s pretty far outside access by any one individual. It would...
