why worry about google? your phone is tracking you

from the article:  "Using triangulation from at least three WiFi hotspots, Cisco can pinpoint a customer within an accuracy of five feet."  AND "It can inform a shopkeeper how many customers entered the store, when they arrived and left, and their exact route through the store." 

Maybe it will become revolutionary to leave your phone at home (turned off?  battery out?), walk to the restaurant, and use cash to pay for dinner.   That's if you can avoid the security cameras tracking you on the street (have you seen "Person of Interest" tv show?) and elsewhere.
