Apple has every right to track it's flock movement and sell it to the highest bidder. Best part is they would play the saint and bad mouth others.

It's bogus for any company to get hit with multi-million dollar suits...who gives a rip. Turn off your GPS if you don't want to be tracked to some extent. Everyone wants a free piece if the pie. As much as I want Apple to suffer, this isn't the place

If you had read the article, you would have learned that the switch could not be turned off... Here's a little quote of the article:

Several charges were dismissed last summer, but two charges are still pending for violations of the Consumer Legal Remedies Act and Unfair Competition Law, the latter of which is related to allegations that iPhones were deceptively sold with “Location Services” switches that could not be turned off. The former charge is based on the assertion that Apple did not protect user data.

California you disappoint me. So much power, so much money, so many people, yet you turn into the biggest disappointment I have ever experienced. I hope the big one hits already and takes down the silicon valley and all its millionaires & billionaires. Sorry for all the other future victims, you know better than to live within faults.
