Google location tracking attracts $50 million lawsuit

Totally forgetting the fact that they opted-in to sharing their location data with Google, two Michigan women have filed a $50 million class action lawsuit seeking class status. 

According to Julie Brown and Kayla Molaski Google collects location data that would normally require a warrant to obtain. That point is debatable, but the police don't need a warrant to do anything that you give them permission to do, just as these women gave permission for Google to collect their location data.

In typical fashion this lawsuit doesn't address any actual damages, just the standard "nothing bad has happened to me yet but you still owe me $50 million" BS. That's not a direct quote, I paraphrased it a bit.

I'm a 40 something early adopter of all things technology. I was first in line to buy both my original Verizon Droid and my Apple iPad 1. I don't hate your phone or tablet choice, but I've probably got an opinion about it. Aside from my family, the only things that I love more than a new gadget are fly fishing and going to the ballpark. Ocassionaly I find a way to blog about both. Though I'm only one more Foxconn story away from being fired, I've been writing for Android Headlines since March 2011.
