Reply To: 5 Mar 16 – Billboards can track your location
Sure I care — but it won’t help. I’m being tracked by untold methods already. Look at the number of ‘legitimate’ license plate scanners out there — and probably there are many more. My EZ-Pass thing is being used in NYC for monitoring traffic patters. I’ve heard the tire pressure sensors in cars can (or are) being used for that, also.
What about the facial recognition software that can pick me out of a crowd at Times Square during a New Year’s gathering? Many of the apps on smart phones tell you what info they may access on your phone, and much of it has nothing to do with the app. Why?
Lets not even get into RFID tags and what they can be used for. Got a NY enhanced driver’s license? Who reads that, and from how far?
