On Friday Cinco De Mayo a rare occurrence took place during the game that pitted the San Francisco Giants against the Cincinnati Reds. Two players from the same small high school played against each other in a Major League Baseball game. The pitcher for the Reds was Bronson Arroyo and the third baseman for the San Francisco Giant was Christian Arroyo. Both of these players graduated from Hernando High School and even though they share the same last name and hometown, they are unrelated.

Apple and Google phones now add location metadata by default to every photo taken with them. Social media apps then use this data when you share these photos.

Not only are you telling anyone who sees the photo and knows how to view metadata where you took the photo, but now several companies know where you have been if you give them access to your photos. If you share your photos on Facebook, Facebook can determine where you went on vacation, where you hang out with your friends, and where you take your kids to eat.

Oftentimes the laws that are passed or the rules enacted to protect, require us to do things that don’t even make sense.
