We collected 217 votes divided like this: 39% hate location data collection and are looking for a hack or law to stop it; 24% don’t like it much, but can see merit in collecting the data; 22% realise that it doesn’t matter whether they like it or not as they’re never going to do anything about it; 10% love the data collection and are glad someone is keeping tabs on them; while 6% hate it and will ditch their phones, vowing to never trust Apple or Google ever again.
Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.
As you can see, the bulk of respondents dislike the phone location data collection and are looking for a way to stop it.
This week’s poll question is: How Many Email Addresses Do You Have?
Most of us have been collecting email addresses for a while. But how many does the average geek have? There’s the personal email, your work email, the old email address you got when Hotmail was still cool, the aliases you set up for your domain (including all the ways people misspell your name), etc. Just how many email addresses exist today that would get a message to you?
So, why so many email addresses? Or why so few? Especially if you’re hovering around the extremes of this poll, please let us know why!
