yeah, i think they can get your general location from your IP address.

I think a giant snake is scarier than an automated process displaying a map of the city I am currently in, myself.

Stalkers agree: makes it 45% easier to case your joint!

It doesn't show me anything but it wants me to enter my phone number, but then, I have built-in GPS to show me where I am.

Giant snakes can now track all of my movements online. Thanks, Google!

"Cannot display content" Still a few bugs.

arse_hat, that just means that you don't exist.

No wonder I can't think. I'm not.

Oh yeah, that's dreadful. I have friends who insist the phone I have is for their convenience, so they can reach me, and that by not answering I'm not holding up my end of some bargain. This seems to take that one step beyond; maybe the factions that divide our dystopian future will break on privacy lines -- those who go underground to exercise their right to cover their tracks versus those who would keep tabs on everybody -- I guess I know where I stand.

I guess I know where I stand.

Unfortunately, so does Google.

Haha, good one, Atom Eyes.

I will train and learn to spit a needle straight into the eye in the sky; pthooey! Google will burst like a bubo and I will be victor despite mixing metaphors!

I will in fact do nothing because I like my phone and computer! What I imagine to be rights is old fashioned; move over freedom, make way for convenience.

Hugh, I have an ex-SIL who thinks it is rude for people to call when it is inconvenient for her. For example, if she's at the movies, people should know not to call her.

So, there's no way The Law would employ such a tool, eh?

Totally scarier than the ancient gigantasnake. "Fred wants to hang out with his friends" - yipes.
