Cell phones on the other hand communicate constantly... they know where they are via GPS, and they talk to towers to maintain service. And if you have various services turned on in your cell phone, it may regularly report your location.

Oh and I almost forgot... local surveillance cameras... banks, gas stations, convenience stores, your neighbors alarm system... that data could be compiled to find out where you might be from time to time.

Are you important enough to track? Are you rich, wanted, famous, or otherwise sought? If not... probably not. "They" don't care.
You left out credit cards and loyalty cards. They may not care about us individually, but they do as a group when it comes to spending.

Be thankful you didn't have to google other bands like "The Rolling Stones" they'd probably tell you: "Hey, You, Get Off Of My Cloud!"

Heh… I think we're all watching that clock tick down.

Time remaining for 2020 ← I got bored yesterday morning and made that. It'll be nice to see that tick down to zero!
