Also, why not wait until someone can actually prove that data was mined and sold? I can't understand why so many people whose thinking I truly respect are willing to buy into "Apple mined the data and sold it." without so much as a shred of non-circulstantial evidence.
Well what other use would there be for such tracking data? I mean really with damn near everyone any more trying to collect data to sell I find it funny that people are not up in arms. No I done Know for sure they have sold data, But I can really see no other reason to keep tabs on where people go day in and out for a Year at a time, other than to triangulate one's favorite hangouts and try to either send folk's ad's they deem relevant, Find the most popular coordinates on the maps, and Place businesses there, Place bill boards, Raise the rent for businesses that are already there as their land value goes up. etc etc etc.
I mean really, I cant think of one non Commercial reason why any one would want this data? other than maybe police trying to catch criminals.
I don't own one of the items listed., but I do think the whole thing is a bad idea..
