    Pretty detailed time log of when I'm 'at home' or work...a record every 30-90 minutes. Might be a record logged from Jarvis at 11:19 in someone's iPhone.
    Yikes! I just checked mine and sure enough, it gives dates and time frames along with the location. I wanted to turn it off but in the event I'm a subject on this website, it would be a useful tool. *creepy*

    LOL, my thought process was exactly the same. May be useful info to have one day! IIRC, the location data is only stored on the phone and not shared with 3rd parties or sent back to Apple.

    P.S. Congratulations, creepingskills!
    You can turn it off, but I think the setting is 'on' by default. Sneaky!

    And thank you for the congrats, coastal!

    LOL, I think that most people don't fret about someone knowing where they've been spending their time. I could be totally wrong on that, but honestly think most people don't give it a second thought.

    I think this is a useful app to help until 911 can accurately pinpoint locations (on all cell phones) during a call for help or, as others say, in case we happen to go missing or murdered. :/ Just my opinion on the matter, but then again, I'm all for security cameras on the street. Or is it just because I'm getting older and don't feel invincible like I was in my 20s?
    ...Detective Owens said the driver is not a suspect in the case...

    I don't mind if people know where I've been nearly as much as I mind machines that keep track of me without my direction to do so. Maybe I just read too much science fiction in my youth?

    Actually, now that I think about it, I don't want people tracking me, either.

    Is it paranoia if it's real?
    If you're lucky enough to be at the beach, you're lucky enough.

    BBM. No, IMO. I completely agree with you re: usefulness. I'm a worrier without much to hide, the benefits outweigh the risks for me. On the other hand, I think people would be... less than thrilled by having to opt out, rather than opt in to the tracking.

    LOL, what's that saying: just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not after you? You and me on the science fiction!

    Bumping for reference since we've learned this is the airport and flight Dr. Sievers traveled on.

    Check out https.nsa.gov1.info see on right, Surveillance then hit What Data We Collect. LE departments all over the country have access to programs for grabbing info from phones, etc. Yes, Big Brother can watch & listen.
