All cell phones can track people. Apple unlike Google is not in the data business. Apple wants to sell hardware/software to you.

Google on the other hand is in the data business and you are the product.

The difference is that the media isn't a self published model, and most social media gives the impression that it's a "common carrier". 10-15 years ago people were MUCH more opposed to censorship on communications channels than they are today ... there was still a core of web and tech elders around who were into free speech years ago. Now that the millennial kids have taken over society, censorship is cool.

The youngins believe in this crap because of the Cultural Marxism that has been fed to them through the school system.

Daily reminder: YOU ARE THE PRODUCT

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Google has revised an erroneous description on its website of how its “Location History” setting works, clarifying that it continues to track users even if they’ve disabled the setting.

The change came three days after an Associated Press investigation revealed that several Google apps and websites store user location even if users have turned off Location History. Google has not changed its location-tracking practice in that regard.

But its help page for the Location History setting now states: “This setting does not affect other location services on your device.” It also acknowledges that “some location data may be saved as part of your activity on other services, like Search and Maps.”

But how is this any different than the TV and newspapers? They dont tell the truth either and its been widely known for decades that they slice and dice the stories to fit the narrative that they want to push. There is tons of articles in preeminent newspapers that routinely distort the truth. Is there a truth scale for them?

The real difference is that the internet has democratized the media. Any tard with a smart phone can make a video and post it on the web. The elite HATE this.

On top of this who gets to decide what is the "truth"? Who is appointed the czar of media truthfullness?

I never heard of Jerry Weinberg before today, but it looks like he made a significant contribution to programming and software development.  People like him had great ideas and an entrepreneurial spirit.
