Apple and Google both have black eyes after news surfaced that their mobile devices track and store your every move, even when you tell them not to. And one of the little secrets that has come to light is that Joe Law has been given this data as part of investigations.
Hey, I'm all for putting creeps behind bars, but spying on all of us to do so may not be such a great trade (agree or beg to differ at [email protected]).

Is Microsoft really the one to be trusted here? Based on a few recent projects, I've come face-to-face with Redmond privacy policies and tend to think so.
