Good tip

To turn off Geo-tagging for your photos on your cellphone camera here is a link that shows you how. http://icanstalku.com/how.php#disable

I checked the setting on my phone and this was already turned off. There was a segment on the news the other day telling how people can track your photos. For example you post a pic of your new flat screen tv, which has your home address associated with it, next you post a pic at a restaurant...if someone is watching they can determine you are not home and this would be a good time rob you.

or you could marry someone that stays at home all day so when you upload a geotagged photo and the robbers go to your house they go, 'oh, wait. someone's here' and they leave all confused and sad.

And this is why I 1. try not to post that I'm off somewhere (not that I stick hard and fast to that rule) and 2. I never really leave my house anymore...ah the 'joy' of working from home.
