Since the cell phone companies are constantly recording this data for the TSA, what's the big deal? It is also now reported that the droid phones do essentially the same thing iPhones do. If you have a cell phone and it is turned on, it doesn't matter whether it's a smart phone or not it's being tracked by the cell phone companies if no one else. Much ado about nothing. If a person doesn't want to be tracked for what ever reason, turn off your cell phone and use copper wire phones for communication. As a last comment - The iPhone database is tracking by cell tower proximity, not GPS.
