    I don't think that users are as concerned with privacy as this article seems to suggest. Particularly with all the personal information I see floating around on FB.

    that isn't quite the same. it's not like the ghost thing will gradually cause people to move to another location, get a particular job, and spend most of their time in a specific place.

    there are apps which could do that, but this is not an example of one.

    Is me, or that is just a bit overdramatic?

    I mean, you play with a bunch of people a "let's take pics of that building" game, and when the players go to that fucking building to take the pics, you conclude that you have some kind of awesome crowd control that if abused will lead to "manipulating users into conducting illegal acts"

    wow

    I know right? even the things where cereal companies would have you collect toys that come with their cereal is a better example than this.

    Where are the Morlocks? someone mentioned Human Cattle?

    Those two said "If it was a Japanese car it wouldn't have happened"
    I said "If it was a white driver it would not happen either."

    Apparently Japan has to make sure their GPS does ALL the thinking for their Asian drivers.

    I dunno, GPSes can be pretty insistent about going a particular way, even when you make it clear you don't want to go there

    Imagine playing an RTS while you're on a blimp but in real life.

    I think the fear is that one could design a similar app to get people to photograph potential terrorist targets, military installations, etc...

    Not that the article isn't overblown.
