Can't wait to see how regulators will see such data collecting in EU after GDPR enters in force.
Why doesn't this surprise me? lol
Exactly. I have always kept mine disabled but knew deep down they were still tracking me somehow.
You can run, but you can't hide lol.
Nope, your Android phone's not secretly tracking your location when you tell it not to by Raymond Wong.
Who on earth would be believe anything google says. It is NOTHING for these guys to lie through their back teeth. People seem to have very short memories.
Also there is a secret miniature battery in most phones these days. So you can't remove your battery & think you're safe. Faraday cages/meshes are the only sure way.
You can check with a volt meter if the the actual phone transmitter/receiver is active.
I guess so. But 99% watch the movies & think they're super spies by taking out the battery. LOL
Agreed. Whatever happened to Don't be Evil! Lol.
so in other news the sky is blue.
Yes along with water is wet.
And everyone under 25yo says what's privacy?
It can't be secret if we're discussing it here lol.
Battery or capacitor?
I wonder how long this "secret miniature battery" is supposed to last.
Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil' Clause From Its Code of Conduct by Kate Conger.
Then I remove "Don't Hang evil Billionaires by their heels in town squares to be spit upon." from my code of conduct".
After due process of law of course. sic
If people haven't figured this out yet, they need to, especially people with young kids who will be most affected by this because their entire life will be profiled by AI.
It will know who they associate with, who's house they spend time at and who else was there.
Have friends who are drug users? It will know they are also now potential drug users.
It will know who they sleep with. It will know who cheats on their wife or husband and who with and when and where.
Have friends with any kind of felony record ? It will know how much time they spend with them.
All of that and a lot more will be accessable to potential employers etc.
It will know what religion they practice, if any. What organisations they belong to, what their political persuasion is.
AI will know before they do if they had sex with someone with herpes, HIV, etc.
It will know how much time they spend at bars, how often they visit liquor stores, there really is no limit to what kind of personal habits and those of people they associate with, will be applied to their profile that will be available to paying customers, corporates, law enforcement, government agencies etc unless governments put a stop to it now.

Google empties the change out of their pocket & settles. Or unleashes their legion of bored to tears corporate lawyers letting them out to play.
