Apple wants to patent iBeacon stalking

What could go wrong?

Seems the author is the only one with a clue. Even though Apple has an on / off switch,or pick who can know,they conveniently leave themselves out. They will collect this information whether you use it or not,and of course,after "removing any identifying information" then aggregate and sell this to all maner of retailers and advertisers. Not to mention all the other apps that will want access to the API. THERE IS a very good reason that security apps always recommend turning off location. Yes,Apple is Evil too ! But telling fanboys is like pissing into the wind.
