Do Google, Apple, and other technologies know where you are and what you are doing?
We are all familiar with how some organizations might be using technology to track the location of people. In some cases, people may not even realize it is happening.
Location-based tracking is common to all smartphones, for good reasons or bad. The popular location-based service company Foursquare has an app so you can check in at various locations to receive discounts, become Mayor, and see who else might be there. DealLeak, which aggregates deals from the likes of Groupon and Living Social, needs your location in order to offer local discounts on products and services to you. How many location-based service apps do you have on your smartphone? How often do you use them and why?
