    Google is reportedly readying a competitor to Apple’s AirTag item tracker, with a launch possibly happening at some point this year. Full story from the iMore Blog...

    Agreed. If I wasn't already a fan of Apple's AirTags, I would still pass on these! Google = No Privacy.

    It will probably kill Tile rather than AirTag.

    All good replies from Annie, Ed, kataran.

    TBH, Google is recording/tracking so much via Android that I’m not sure a Google AirTag will up the invasiveness all that much. Using the Pixel phone as example: it is a Google copy AirTag on a 55 gallon drum of steroids.
    They’ll sell some. I know some Android users who dislike and will not buy Apple, period. But they’ll buy a product category Apple has rocketed into popular culture. Generally those Android users either don’t know or don’t care that Google is recording even walking/waking movements.

    The bad news is I wished they cared more about something that should be important to everyone. The good news is (selfish for me to say, apologies ) those who don’t care about their phone/apps heavily recording their personal privacy data, they actually pay for some of my software/apps/sites I use. Is that wrong of me?
