I'm Not Surprised

Seems a little shady to me:
Google continues to store users' location data even on phones that have privacy settings set to prevent that kind of tracking, according to an Associated Press report released Monday...

Jonathan Mayer, the former chief technologist for the Federal Communications Commission’s enforcement bureau and a current computer scientist at Princeton, told the AP he believes Google is being dishonest.

“If you’re going to allow users to turn off something called ‘Location History,’ then all the places where you maintain location history should be turned off,” Mayer said. “That seems like a pretty straightforward position to have.”
In the same speech in which he warned about the military-industrial complex, President Eisenhower also warned about a "scientific-technological elite".  Hmmmm
