Mobile Tracking

As one official put it, "The line between mobile devices and computers is shrinking every day."

But where should the line be as far as tracking our location information goes?  When we use a smartphone or GPS device to get around, the information of where we are can be tracked by companies - and in some cases, shared with other companies.

Our names aren't usually shared, and the executives questioned on Capitol Hill yesterday said there are several ways that we users can "opt out," or decide not to share our location information.

The question for you is this:  Does it bother you that your location (but not your name) could be tracked when you use a mobile device?  Or is this nothing to worry about?
