  1. It was a bit difficult to listen to you guys talk about Google’s timeline feature as you have not been using location tracking, I have had it turned on for over 4 years and I have found it extremely useful in its different incarnations. For my job I have to complete my own attendance sheet and since I am lazy I just wait until the end of the month and check my history. I have collected over 3 years of commuting data and I know when is the best time to leave home or work on a particular day, in fact I wish I had a way to export that particular data and give it to a city planner or research student to glean some insights that would help with our traffic problems. I also can’t wait for the day when someone accuses me wrongfully of a crime and I go to court and they say “where were you at 7:21pm on August 3rd 2013” , and I would respond “Well according to my Location history, I was at the coffee shop on Belmont Boulevard”
