I would make a fortune from you lot if I just sold tinfoil hats.
You're all over this with extremely little proof or anything solid to back up your concerns.
And whats more, is that the data the OS collects is because it requires it for services to work as has been stated my many others and not just in this forum.
If you dont like it then stop using it. Move onto something else, just stop flippin moaning.
You're like a bunch of CHRILDREN that are whining their poor arses off.
What would you do if your car started reporting back to its manufacturer its location every 5 minutes?
You would go mad!
BUT... What if it did this for a new service to send you an ambulance if it noticed you had been in a crash (detected by g sensors) but it had to go through your car manufacturer and not direct to the emergency service to ensure it wasnt being spoofed or for verification of the alert before wasting the ambulances time.
Think outside the box a bit more, there is such a thing as outside away from your pit.
