Default 'I know where your cat lives' site reveals privacy issues

"A Florida State University professor has created a project that tracks your cat pictures and then figures out where that cat lives. Wait ... seriously?

It's called "I Know Where Your Cat Lives," and you can keep hitting the "Random Cat" button to find more real cats all over the world and their exact geographical locations.

OK -- so it sounds totally creepy, but the thing is -- it's supposed to be. Professor Owen Mundy is trying to show us how unsafe it can be to post pictures online.

Cameras often encode the latitude and longitude of where a picture was taken. Think about all the times you've taken a selfie, or took a shot of that awesome dinner you were about to divulge in. These pictures could very well also have a geolocation encoded in it." --

ummm yeah. please show me where my 8 year old E-500 Olympus DSLR has the ability to pick up GPS with no radio in it.

only the newest of DSLR's and cell phones do this. and if you have the right tools.... you can hack the META GPS Data too!!! put it anywhere on the planet you want.

reference: MH370 IPhone in rectum takes photo @ Diego Garcia with GPS Data.

I don't care if people know where I live. If you stop by we can have a beer on my patio.
