Re: More fast food employee stupidity

Many Smartphones (iPhone, Android units etc) embed GPS data in images (EXIF fields). Google "EXIF viewer" and take a look at images taken by your Smartphone and/or camera. If they contain Latitude/Longitude fields then the images are being geotagged.

All of it is turned off. I remember where I was when I take those pics. I'm not senile!

Better to have it and not need it, then need it and not have it.

Well not yet But in 20-30 years will you remember where you took your pics?

Geotagging is not always a bad thing. The problem is end-user ignorance. Sending pics directly from your Smartphone to FB etc may allow others to determine exactly where you were/are along with other personal info.

What is this 'FB' thing you speak of?

True, it's not always a bad thing; a remote location that may be hard to find, a fishing hole etc. are good uses. But, other than that, it's a fail for me.

Oh it's this small website that about half the population of the planet uses to publish their personal info, thoughts, location and pics of themselves and friends. Just a passing fad I suspect

PS: Oops I forgot to add Bank

Thanks for the info, it's appreciated!

But can I trust my carries, say Verizon or AT&T to tell me before I buy a Smartphone if the camera are geotagged?

Or maybe there is a constantly current website that tells that?

ROFL'ing

I'll be the first to admit; don't have an account on it, post to it, read it or have any use for it at all. FB is just a complete waste of time. Besides, when could I possibly squeeze it into my schedule - I have more important things to do, like reading and posting on the forums at this little site called DSLR all night and day....
