Google Maps is Tracking Your Every Move

OK, so it's either a little cool, or REALLY creepy, but it makes total sense. Google's location tracking site shows exactly where you and your smart phone have been. You can pull up your routes by day, week or month with just a click.

Picked up some take-out? Recorded. Dropped by to see Grandma for dinner? Recored. Went to the club when you should have been home taking care of your kids and getting a good night's rest so you can see them off to school in the morning and lead by example?  Recorded.

If looking back on how many miles you drove on vacation, or how long it took you to get there isn't your thing, at least there's an easy way to change your phone settings so Big Brother Google doesn't keep tabs on you. Now, where to go next?
