You guys see this? TISSA - Taming Information-Stealing Smartphone Applications. Basically it helps you lie to untrusted applications about your location, phone ID number, etc.

Including it in CM would be killer.

Cool, but I think people are way to concerned about"privacy"...i prefer to let app developers (and google) take the information that they need. Then they can use that information to make things better.

Everyone is worried about personal data...but seriously google could care less about what you do as a person, they just aggregate the data anyways...anyone who thinks google is spying on them gas a way over inflated idea of self importance.

If its really an issue, or a shady app, just uninstall the app....or turn off location services
