We all love them right? So now that they are tracking movements, how do you feel about your privacy and what are you willing to give up

Its always been done as long as you have a cell fone. Not cool IMO. For older folks you can see why they dont care. For a young person just starting out in life you are tracked starting in grade school with your google account for learning. If you want to see the future of it all look at current day in china. They are living in a prison planet with satelites tracking them 24-7. You jay walk and dont pay up, then you dont get food or the means to get food.

They have been tracking you for a long long time via cell phones.

Every time you talk on the phone or send a text, you’re tracked.

Every time you use and app, you’re tracked.

Every time you send an email, you’re tracked.

I’ve written many warrants for cell phone searches, data dumps from the carriers, and tower dumps to triangulate whereabouts.

I leave my phone on and mail it to myself once a week just to throw the cops off.

Yep, nothing new. Cell phones have left a digital trail since their inception. All it takes is the proper legal process to get that information, just like it always has.

What is new is geofencing a particular place at a particular time, which is what google is doing.

A warrant can be obtained for a park at a particular time. Google will provide all devices in that park at that time.

Facebook and others has been offering this to advertisers for a while. I used it to push an ad at a state convention, just input the location of the convention center and date.

How many have noticed they get ads for something they were talking about but never searched? Cell phones are listening too.

You're confused if you think it's just your cell phone. I work in cyber security as a living, and you'd be amazed what tracks you. As an example, rental car agencies had an issue with people renting cars to go do gigs (i.e. Uber, Lyft, etc.). They can actually track how far a car drives, what door opens, what door closes, and how long a car sits in between. With that info, they run analytics to figure out which of their fleet is running as a gig car.

Moral of the story, we have given up privacy as a right in this country and the only way to avoid it is to discard anything that has any sort of connectivity.

ETA -- Also avoid charging anything on plastic (i.e. debit, credit, etc.), rewards programs, sending emails asking for things, posting on forums and then revealing your personal information, on and on and on....Data is collected, used and dispersed

Anything with a speaker has the ability to listen.

Not really, there has to be circuitry to sense the speaker acting as a dynamic mic.

But the basic principle of tracking mobile devices and having the ability to obtain that information is not new. That was my point.

They cannot not track us for poop when my kids and wife leave it at home, on the desk, in the car, at the office, in my truck, in a friends car, at school, in the driveway, in the airplane, AND I CANNOT EVEN FIND THEM.

I really love it when I leave my phone in the car, in the truck, at the office, in the deer stand, by the deer feeder, in the UTV, in the dove bucket, in the airplane, in my car, in my wife's car, in my hunting buddy's truck, by the camp fire and can go hours without it.

They can track it and need to create an app to help me find the damn thing when I need it.

Tracking me via my cell phone is useless. Except when my crazy uncle sends me girly email videos and pictures. And the THF. I have my phone on Wednesdays for sure..

Good luck tracking me the other 5.5 days of the week.

If they have been tracking mine they are probably thinking "Man, this guy saw this coming, he has been quarantining himself at his house for years, lol.
