In the News "Representatives from Apple and Google faced hard questions about their location and privacy policies when testifying in front of the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law on Tuesday. Apple VP of Software Technology Guy 'Bud' Tribble and Google Director of Public Policy Alan Davidson both stood behind their companies' policies at the hearing, however, while continuing to insist that they take consumer privacy seriously."

hhmm... guess 'who' got themsleves some cute little smartphones and now canĀ“t sleep all that tight at night, thinking these cuties might be able to tell too mucho about 'someones' whereabouts...?


Well, one of them collected the user's data on that user's devices - which apparently is a problem - the other collects all sorts of data for their own use without even telling you it's doing it - which apparently (until now) hasn't been a problem. Go figure...
