    ... my friend told me that he found out that his new smart phone is keeping a log of all the places he goes to ...

    ... did you know your new phone probably does this? does it concern you? could it be seen as a security risk? does such rude nosiness by software makers annoy you in any way?

    ... it just doesn't seem right to me!

    ... comments?

    its crazy alright. i thought one could refuse the tracking option. my ipad used to ask me if i wanted to turn my location on and i always said no. then i went to a website that found the library nearest me....with my tracking off. so it seems that turning tracking off is a ruse.
