Glad that I'm not an Android user nor do I have any kind of account with Google.

YadaMe: Also if you go on holiday, google+ will do some cool auto-awesome stories showing the photos on maps etc. As always, does the usefulness (google now, location history, photo location tagging) outweigh the perceived loss in privacy (does a large company really care about you as an individual?)


My wife and I both have Nexus 5's, took heaps of pictures in Japan etc etc and we both got stories... it's very cool and a good way to remember what we did and where we were

Do you also browse the internet via a VPN, run script blocking and not have Facebook account too?

I find my location history data extremely useful.

I work in a 24/7 industry. I sometimes use the data to work out my invoice charges for start and finish times when I've forgotten exact times.
