How effective is a smartphone is at being a tracking device and for personal data collection?
If a public relations firm wanted to build a fusion database of a target demographic so they can better know how they would respond to a knew
promotion or ad. Maybe use this information as a crystal ball to predict trends and modify them before they start.
A free "obama" phone could be even more effective because it is free and widely available. Imagine all the information you can find about people that
they are not willing to admit publicly.
This is if the people gathering this metadata are not unethical. If they are, then we're in for a long road ahead.
Spying using phones,internet traffic(ala google and bing) and email can be particularly useful in propaganda campaigns(selling wars to the public
under the guise of "spreading democracy" "keeping you safe" and "harboring terrorists") and political smear/framing(pretty much what they did to Ron
Paul). You can also use this spying apparatus to censor ideas and free expression.
There has to be legislation to make this form of data gathering illegal unless there is a subpoena by a judge.
But go on and drink some fluoride though.
