that the exact system the Norwegian government is trying to get and most of Europe and US have it, the IPS are allowed to store when,where and what you accessed the internet, phone, text message and phone calls... when the governments does it is OK and legal but when two major corporation does it its illegal...

This is how you know it's America - here, the government goes to the trouble of interrogating data collection practices on our behalf. Elsewhere? They`d be asking how the hell to get in on it (Patriot act withstanding).

i don't get the big deal. so long as the information they gather is anonymous, what`s the issue? "so some dude happens to be [here]" no name, no other info (maybe b-day, but again anonymous is fine). So long as i retain my anonymity, i have no problem w/ the marketers getting this info. What I WOULD like to see is some of this money they make off our info passed back to us in terms of cheaper devices, etc. I feel as it is now it`s just free money for them, and lots of it.

Freak. I have a friend who works for Verizon. This was consented long ago by Congress and the FCC and Homeland Security. When they created the bill to do away with analog and all phones had to be digital. It's called 911 GPS tracking.
