Why your phone tracking your GPS location is a problem

Today we're going to touch on the latest news in how your phone is selling your location to 3rd party companies - and we're going to discuss why this is important. The most common thing I hear when I tell people they're being tracked and/or surveilled is something along the lines of this: "I don't care, why would they want to listen to me or follow me anyway?"

On the other hand, bringing along products that aren't necessarily set to be available in the USA hints at something bigger.

Full-body Galaxy S10 leaks show multiple phones

Over the course of the last couple of days, the Samsung Galaxy S10, the Galaxy S10 Plus, and the Galaxy S10 Lite were leaked.
