Well not so much wearing as keeping a smartphone in my pocket. Just had a series of surveys come up on the phone. Answer these question and earn. Some questions about Tesco (shopped there today), Harvest petrol station (got the petrol in the independent garage), Minsmere (RSPB Bird Reserve) obviously Big Brother does not know what it is as I was asked if they had live music there.
No, they got no answers from me but frightening how we are tracked every minute. The Govt. could do away with costly tags for criminals, just attach there phones to them.

Are these ones from Google? Asking quick questions about the places it "thinks" you have been to?
We are certainly being tracked, although I believe we can control out privacy options a bit in the settings and google account settings.

Even basic mobiles can be tracked by which cell tower they are bouncing off. Least ways, that's what the FBI etc do on telly. I believe that smartphones have GPS which is more precise.And useful, if you get lost.
Lots of cars come with GPS navigation. All those self-driving cars will have them. It's the basis of any navigation system.
Big Brother is a comin'.

Someone offered me their old smartphone on Saturday as they were getting a new one as I have 500mb of data each month on my basic mobile which Of course I don't use. (just use the text and call allowance part) Don't want one. Don't see the need and I am a bit of a Luddite I know.
