On-star, and I don't know if this is crazy or what, but I heard cable boxes could be eaves dropping on us?

The most obvious would be SS#. Oh yeah, you know those plus cards from where ever, that you put on your keychains and scan every time you save a little. The businesses track your buying habits where you shop. which is then handed to census... and we know where that next stop would be.

I hear this type of talk a lot.

So we are all being tracked; Are we just essentially locations? Is our personal information known?

If we are tracked, what does this do for tptb? If everyone on earths location on known what does this do?

"Oh dear lord, john has gone to McDonalds again"

No disrespect intended i just fail to see why they would need to track as many individuals as possible, especially considering the huge vast majority of the population are still sleeping.

Trends, routines, sales etc?

Thought i might add, i've worked at Australia's leading supermarket for a few years now, their rewards card essentially does very little for the buyer, except track their buying records to "offer them personal specials based on their track record". Personally i would never have one of these cards, except as an employee i get a whopping 5% off purchases.

That being said, it would not surprise me if the information was sold to an external corporation. You'd be surprised how willing people are to give out all their personal information to a company.

Mobile phone towers track your phone, store cards and loyalty cards track you, land line telephone routers can track you, ATM's track you, as do credit debit cards, your own computer hard drive will betray you.
All the other gizmoes you just cannot do without will track you via Wi-Fi.
I don't have a cell phone or any other little black box to carry around, if the government wants to know where I am, it can look for me. I do have credit and debit cards, have to draw the line somewhere! for my hobbies mainly, and to draw out cash wherever I am.(if I need to)

being tracked isnt always a bad thing. As i said about the plus cards they track where you shop then hand it to census to decide funding for city growth if needed. Not to mention, it helps the place where the card came from decide where to locate. to better benefit you and I. You cant knock on-star either... If your cars stolen, they make the situation move quicker. Plus, who hasnt locked theyre keys in theyre car. At the same time though, thats alot of crap on you. Imagine if someone were watching you. You go to the store. Transit cameras, highway cameras, red light cameras all government managed to give you tickets and watch traffic. then stored in a data base. The news use the dot cams all the time with the weather. Then u get to the store. you use your debit/credt and maybe a saving card that always brings up the fact that they give which actually means sells your info to third parties. Not to mention, what doesnt ask that anymore? Then i think of an artical i read about a project the FBI had been working on gathing all they could on everyone after 9/11 due to "Homeland Security". Which then makes me wonder what the FBI has theyre hands in, as far as company wise, to not even need to be a third party.

Just watched this on the BBC website regarding SatNav's and the data they record for every journey we make.

Basically, ALL our jopurney data is recorded and downloaded whenever we update the software.... a perfectly legal thing the companies do in order to 'improve' the system...

Date, times, from and to and Speed !.apparently kept anonomously although there was a mistake recently where the Police Authorities (NOT in UK) were sent this information 'by mistake'...... that made me smile.....

I wonder where it was ?

You have to look at the bad also, for instance with the new healthcare mandate in US, they have access to how unhealthy you are. What crap you eat, are you a smoker? Imagine the ramifications.
