Ecliptic: Reason number whatever not to buy an android...


Yes, because Apple doesn't keep GPS tracking data of its Juice Drinkers.

Pretty common sense now a days, if you're going to do shady shiat.
Leave your cell at home.

Only an amateur would take any kind of electronic device with them to do something of questionable merit or legality.

Honestly... how stupid can people be?

Google, Apple, and Amazon will all be at least partially nationalized during my lifetime. Their vast arrays of surveillance data and the apparatuses that built them will pass to the state, for public security and peace in our time.

Apple doesn't monitize your location data like Google does, so they have no need to upload it to their servers and keep it forever.

Google now takes it a step farther and buys a copy of your credit card transaction data, so they not only know where you go, they also know what you are spending while you are there.

Google has been able to track your location using Google Maps for a long time. Since 2014, it has used that information to provide advertisers with information on how often people visit their stores.

But store visits aren't purchases, so, as Google said in a blog post on its new service for marketers, it has partnered with "third parties" that give them access to 70 percent of all credit and debit card purchases.

Creepy, indeed.

Apple's actually pivoted to pushing privacy as a selling point of their whole ecosystem:

https://www.apple.com/privacy/approac​h​-to-privacy/

"Maps

You don't have to sign in to use Maps. Personalized features, like letting you know when it's time to leave for your next appointment, are created using data on your device. The data that Maps collects while you use the app - like search terms, navigation routing, and traffic information - is associated with random identifiers so it can't be tied to your Apple ID. These identifiers reset themselves as you use the app to ensure the best possible experience and to improve Maps."

Why would government want to do that? The companies are much better at it, and, as private entities who supposedly have 'consent' from their customers, aren't subject to the same restrictions government would be. Then all government has to do when it wants that data is demand it in the name of law enforcement or regulation.
