    One tap and automatically you get your location of where you are...

    I'm sure Apple really wants to know exactly where all their users are...

    I dont really think they care about where their customers are. it would be useless, not to mention a waste of time when they could be making better apps..

    He was being sarcastic. The OP is the ridiculous one.

    Actually, if you read the Google Maps TOS, they state that they collect data on your location and they give you the option of turning it off. Of course they don't make it easy to find.

    Also, of course they care where their customers are (google that is). Think about it. It sees that you are walking by a mcdonalds...BAM a Mcdonalds ad pops up on your screen and tells you that there is a mcdonalds 200ft up to your right. Give it a few years and I guarantee this will happen.

    Also, this is not new, i've had this on my blackberry using google maps for the last few months. Everytime I open Google maps on my BB, it always has my current location. It updates every minute or so. (ie it follows you around...)
