    There was a great outcry and gnashing of teeth over the NSA collecting date on you. They only collected telephone numbers you had called. Companies collect much more information. Does this bother you? Does it bother you that data has and is being collected, not by the government, about all the places you go and visit?

    They say that only you can view the data. How long do you believe that will last? How long before that data is collected by hackers?

    Since Google asked me for permission to collect the data when I first turned on my phone, I'm OK with that. I can always shut off locations services if I don't want my physical presence to be tracked. Of course, Google navigation will now longer work. Some features of other apps would be limited.
