Google, Facebook and Apple will tweak the new standard to further track where users shop, eat, drink and sleep - and then claim they were not aware they had been tracking their users. Once they are caught, they will issue a statement indicating that they "respect" users privacy and will issue a patch to avoid legalities - until a newer technology allows them to do the same thing all over again - and the cycle continues.

Use a fake ID when setting up your mobile data plans. Who cares if they know what Bob Clives does. He's not real.

Who needs GPS tracking when you can use WiFi tracking? lol

Just link your MAC address to your SIM card and BAM - you conveniently have a record which can be used to track you down and prosecute you to the fullest extent in court!

Also you can log onto Wi-Fi networks 2 seconds quicker! Great for all your bicycling-wifi needs!

Its like a digital passport for your computer! Authorities love it!

Google will come up with a way to analyze your patterns and predict where you will be next Tuesday afternoon. Than they will show ads for restaurants in that area :)

People have GPS on their cell phones and everyone's knee-jerk reaction to this is about how authorities/companies will be able to track where you are? Wow.

Who thinks this is a good idea? The current system works fine and this will just cause a privacy nightmare. Stop trying to find out who every person is online. Anonymity is a good thing.
