“Your Timeline allows you to visualize your real-world routines, easily see the trips you’ve taken and get a glimpse of the places where you spend your time.”

Shouldn't "you" be replaced with "they", in this sentence, with they meaning corporations and the state?

I have this wonderful device that I have had for 46 years that allows me to vividly recall places I frequently visit and those that I haven't been to in 30 plus years. The storage capacity is around 2.5 petabytes (or a million gigabytes). Think I agree with warispeace on wanting to keep my memories my own.

Can already see this with Device Manager, but would be good to have it in an easy to access view. My personal memory space is too full (or maybe it is somewhat corrupted from alcohol consumption) so i cannot remember where i was on this day last year etc.

As for giving my data to google... Its not like they dont know anyway...

Once @ Google, always @ Google (and NSA, KGB, Rakuten, Amazon, some porn sites, some spam advertising companies, etc). The scariest was when I once looked for an item at Rakuten, and started getting advertisements for similar items over all my browsing computers, all over the world... So yes, Google has just launched a f-king person tracking device, and a lot of lemmings are just going to enable it by default, voluntarily letting governments and corporations spy on them without warrant...

This person knows how to tell a smooth lie, yes he does... Too bad many drones will believe him...

"They" could already do that (doesn't matter which phone ya have). All this doing is giving you the option to see what "they" already see (ya can turn it off of course but that's like the equivalent of putting your head in the sand, still won't stop "they" though) heheheheh

Hahaha, would've helped the guys in The Hangover movies!
