Last week a report was released revealing that iphone and android smart phones track your location at all times and transmit it back to Apple and Google respectively. This discovery has many worried about who has access to this data, and how it could be abused.

Both companies are likely using this data to tap into the market of location-based services, but there is something to be said about privacy. As we enter an age where our personal information is more publicly available, isn't it important to start talking about who has access to our information and what they could do with it? Is this something inevitable in our technological future? Or do we have a say?
