My only point was that with any forum we are on, I am convinced the algorythms behind the scenes are capturing every move made. How that information is used I am sure is even well beyond what I am aware of today.
Feel the same exact way.

I'm retired now but I fully understand tracking. Anyone who has a cell phone should realize that they should no longer have any sense of personal privacy. And it has been that way literally for years......

As I stated above, I'm retired now but I spent years working for a large company in what was labeled "Transportation Engineering".. At one time, the company was the govt's computer back-up for the US military and other important government infrastructures. Tracking existed them. I was involved in several computer projects in the late 1990's when this was happening. Those folks were all large frame computer users, and it amused me that they had so little experience in small frame/laptop and desktop computer capabilities that we were wanting to use for inter-company physical monitoring and tracking of product loss/gains and financial transactions. Those things eventually came about within five years and after, and they became universal between sub-companies where legally allowed in the oil transportation world.

Tracking in various forms exists and it has existed for years, and it is nothing new by any stretch of the imagination.......... Fire up you cell phone and you're "online". If you have Alexa or Siri in your home, they are listening too about conversations you might have with your wife about computer/internet shopping. 15 minutes after a conversation, adds can pop up on both of your cell phones about the exact conversation you just had. A simple flick of a switch and the tracking can expand wherever someone wants it to go to... And that is just one version. If you have a vehicle with a theft prevention capability, every time you back you car out of the garage, your every move is being tracked. And that too is not a new thing. IIs been around for years. I recently got rid of a 2018 Chevy Colorado 4WD so equipped, and its replacement - a 2021 Dodge Challenger RT Scat Pack with a 485 hp 392 Hemi (I know - just what an old man needs) even provides you with your "trips" on the associated phone app. The Colorado didn't do that but it knew when and where I was at all times in my vehicle - along with my cell phone too. Same same with my wife's car. If so inclined, which we're not, we'd suck at being Bonnie and Clyde in today's world. I'm sure that the tracking algorithm probably yawns each time it sees where we typically go. Or maybe not?

BCB, same thing for the maintenance minders, software updates, etc. We haven't been driving much what with COVID and some health related issues, yet the computer continues to nag about anything. And now, since most states require 'hands free driving', you have to Bluetooth link your cell phone to the car also. Now everybody knows where you are.

Along that train of thought, is not the OnStar system and other's like it, all tracking your every move in a vehicle. Same thing with your smart phone.
Just look how LE/Government can track and see where you and your vehicle are at any given time. Privacy is a long gone item now days.

Yes. GM's OnStar has tracked you for years........... Whether you buy their services or not. Bluetooth capabilities, which are not a new thing, opened up a whole new world in tracking capabilities...

I feel so much safer in my 1987 Jeep Cherokee with roll up windows.

Tracking is why I cannot access and use my E-mail service unless I turn off my VPN. Go figure.
