"Location aware" doesn't sound that scary, now does it?

Webmonkey reports:
"Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 7 plans to offer developers location tools [tools that know your geographical location] at the operating system level and the company doesn’t seem to think users care about control or privacy.

Before you freak out at the thought that Redmond will soon be tracking your every move, keep in mind that the new features will be disabled by default. That’s the good news."

Sure, allowing one of the most bloated, patronizing corporations in history to know exactly where you are sounds like a bad thing, but. . . actually, I'm not sure how to finish that sentence.
