    creepy...if they have the ability to post coordinates on a picture message, then what would be the point of even having to turn the gps location seeting on at all? It sounds like either way, yer being watched...just a thought

    That's why I posted this. A guy creeped me out. I had been searching an area that had a lot of Ais indian artifacts, and there was an old foundation just under the water. I took a photo of the foundation and posted it...30 minutes later a guy sent me a Google Earth image with an X he had put on the foundation. When I looked into it, it was easy to do, and quite accurate. I quickly found two posts in the "Best finds" section where the hunter had posted a pic of his freshly dug find right as it came out of the ground. I could tell you where his spot was in about 45 seconds. I'm a little more "techie" than most people, but I thought a warning was in order. :-)

    Yep, videos can contain the same meta header and GPS data. You have to watch the new cameras too, many of them have GPS buit in and turned on from the factory, so it is not just cell phones anymore. I bought a Nkon Coolpix P510 and it has a GPS reciever built in also.

    Thanks all, Beachy....I use bread to catch tilapia. There is a trick to catching the big ones. Put a full piece of sandwich bread with a hook in the center...no weight. Throw it out gently and wait for it to sink. The little tilapia will start hitting the edges pretty quickly, keep waiting. Eventually, if you are lucky a big guy will take the bread and run with it. You will see your line moving very quickly through the water....wait for it. After he runs away from all the other fish, he will inhale the remaining bread allowing you to set the hook. The trick is to wait as long as possible. I usually wait for the line to stop if I have enough slack, and then set the hook. It's an art knowing when to set it, but practice makes purpose, just bring lots of bread. :-) Most days I have to wait until the ducks and turtles are full to really start catching some fish. I have the best luck in slow moving parts of the canals.

    Tilapia are literally almost everywhere in the southeast and even in parts of Texas now. You'dbe hard pressed to find a Florida canal without Tilapia in it. They are excellent eating, and since they are an invasive (non-native) species, there is no bag or size limit on them. There is a law that you cannot travel with them alive (to prevent further spreading) so I put them on ice as soon as I catch them, makes them easier to filet too.

    I Can Stalk U - Raising awareness about inadvertent information sharing

    Here's what the U.S. Military recently told it's Soldiers:
    "But soldiers who upload photos to Facebook "could broadcast the exact location of their unit," wrote Rodewig, citing Steve Warren, an administrative officer in the intelligence office of the Army's Maneuver Center of Excellence (MCoE). Warren gave Rodewig a chilling example of the consequences of geo-tagging:

    When a new fleet of helicopters arrived with an aviation unit at a base in Iraq, some soldiers took pictures on the flightline, he said. From the photos that were uploaded to the Internet, the enemy was able to determine the exact location of the helicopters inside the compound and conduct a mortar attack, destroying four of the AH-64 Apaches."

    Thanks for the Heads up ScubaFinder. I was unaware of this. I have a plain Jane trac Phone, my name is Poorman15 after all. It's great that people like you are willing to pass on things that many of us would be unaware of. That's what true metal detecting sportsmanship is all about. Good for you for passing this along. Thanks

    You are absolutely correct on this.
    When I got a new Cricket phone for Christmas, one of the options was if I wanted to turn the GPS on. (NO FRICKEN WAY). I knew exactly what that meant.... 'they' want to track YOU! Have you seen the tiny micro drones they've come out with? Well, remember the little 'dragonfly' at the beginning of "Men In Black" movie, with Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones? That thing is REAL, now. ... with about 10K new applications expected in the next 5 yrs. for commercial production and tons of other 'styles' to be available. CREEPY STUFF!
