Re: Best use for voice control in cars
All very well, but for your future reference: when you phone 911/112/999 etc that the mobile operator already relays your position to the emergency service dispatcher. It's a network service, but it's based on multilateration ("triangulation" with more than three stations involved), so you can get down to about 10 m accuracy - certainly close enough to visually spot a crashed car anyway.
I would have no problem with that use of my location information, provided:
1 - I gave permission for that specific use. Yes, I know I need to do that upfront, but that's the point: I have the option, and yes, accept the consequences if I opt out.
2 - that information stays there, and goes no further. This is also the primary problem with the current warrant free intercept: not just that it's uncontrolled, but also that you don't have a grip on what's actually happening to that data after they
stole acquired it.
I see far too many thing happening that try to suggest that handing such information is no longer a privacy issue and that you should just play along. Well, f*ck that.
