Question

Geo-location capabilities built into smartphones provide a host of benefits to many users, ranging from traffic

and navigation to keeping up with current trends on your local university campus. However, they can also be a powerful tool for stalkers and others with malicious intent, with potentially fatal consequences. Who should be responsible for managing the risks that this technology poses? Consumers? Smartphone manufacturers? Operating system developers? App developers that make location-tracking apps? Governments? Discuss the strengths and weaknesses that each of these groups has in managing stalking risks from location-based technologies. Then, argue for which group (or some mix of groups) you think ought to be responsible. In your argument, entertain at least one objection to your argument and provide a rejoinder.
