In a historic announcement, Microsoft actually agrees to make efforts to protect our basic human right to privacy, Google and Apple have yet to act responsibly with our freedom.

With Standing room only at this weeks US Senate hearing on the privacy being afforded to those who choose to live with a smartphone at their side 24/7, Microsoft made a commitment to stop IDing mobile devices running the Windows Phone 7 Operating System. Obviously this will mean another WP7 update in the near future thus disabling the on-board location-tracking services on the OS or rendering them inert. All this, clearly a jab at both Apple's iOS and Google's Android OS who's authors have yet to provide the same move forward to protecting our write to privacy.
