Maybe it’s me, but I think this new app is crossing the privacy laws… Google may require sign-up of service, but what’s to keep government from obtaining access to the information??? Big Brother is watching you!

Story Highlights

  • New Google software, Latitude, lets cell phone users share their location with others
  • Google hopes it will help people find each other and keep track of loved ones
  • To protect privacy, Google specifically requires people to sign up for the service
  • People can share their precise location, the city they’re in, or nothing at all
