Several of my friends / coworkers have a perfect answer for this: They have an app on the phone reporting its position to this web service that can tell you where the phone is. The app uses all sorts of tricks to get a correct location: GPS, Glasnost (or whatever it is called), Gallileo, locations of all sorts of GSM/successor towers, ...

The purpose is to tell your position so it can be reported to any agency who wants to track you ... maybe that is not the stated purpose, but just an indirect benefit. Everone can know exactly where you are: Authorities, friends, burglars, and advertising companies who want to direct you towards "relevant" stores.

What's in it for you? That's obvious: This web site told you exactly where to look for your phone!

I am trying to be as polite as I can when rejecting the pressure from my coworkers telling me how just great it is to let this app keept track of your phone (and indirectly: you) at all times. They do not see any problem with it. I do.
