Verizon is taking steps to get ahead of the new drama and legal action surrounding location tracking with smartphones like the iPhone and Android smartphones. In a letter to congress, Verizon spelled out details on its tracking methods, why it tracks, how it uses the data, and the purposes behind the use. It all makes sense, actually – I mean, how in the world did you think your Google Maps app actually worked? Regardless, Verizon will now be placing a huge, ridiculous looking sticker on iPhones that customers will have to remove. Again, this is Verizon trying to hedge against any potential litigation that could be heading its way.
