Google Latitude – too much of a good thing?

The new Google Latitude mobile tracking system may have a lot of really useful applications (emergency location, vehicle tracking, locating a friend etc) but it also gives bosses a Big Brother opportunity that not everyone will be happy about.  Do you want your employer tracking your every move?


This could be the precursor of a contract of employment that stipulates you leave your mobile on at all work times so that you can be traced. Personally I wouldn’t have a problem with this, but I know a lot of people will have something to say about it.  Leave a comment if you are one of those!
