I don't as a rule name any inanimate objects, I have however, begun to call my Roomba vacuum Rosie. We have a heavy duty stapler at work, that someone named "Big Bertha". I'm not taking the survey either ;)

I sure didn't click the link and he can read whatever we have to say right here.

In light of CG's experience, maybe it would be safer for those unaware, if a mod just disabled his link.

That's what I wanted to suggest but I was worried that others might want to do it. I've learned to be VERY hinky about links-----so far no really bad experience but the potential is there. I know of too many people who can winkle more information than you can believe by people who want to do that.

Another thing, as long as I am skirting on making enemies----- posting pictures taken at your home with the GPS turned on can give information. I'm not saying it's a problem here, but in other forums people put pics of their cute little girls in front of their homes on forums.

It's too bad our times have gotten this way.

IMO one can never be to careful, so I'm sure in your corner there cave. It's one reason I have nothing at all to do with social media, but that's another kettle of worms for discussion another time.

Got a nasty virus that Himself spent a few hours eradicating and making sure our system was safe again. Once burned, twice shy.

Besides, you have to admit that some of our answers have been a bit amusing.
I clicked on the link GG put up of an alternate sous vide method (I think) and at least twenty tabs opened up. They were popping up and quickly as I was trying to close them all down. I had to hit the power button. No idea what happened, but I was not a happy camper.

Posting pictures with the GPS turned on?
What do you mean? I don't think I've ever seen that.

I've named the car and the cats.

Of course you name cats. They are people! And they certainly aren't inanimate. Well, at least not for about an hour a day!

I don't know if regular cameras have GPS, but smartphones do. Then the GPS info will be in what's called the exif data. Here's what Wikipedia has to say about privacy and security, relative to exif data:

You have the option of letting everyone know where you are and what you're doing on a lot of social media like Facebook and Twitter, along with a bunch of other websites. Your exact location can be pinpointed. You also have the option of turning it off, but you need to go into Settings and do it one app at a time.
