By all accounts the LiveWire NavGenius is your typical gray-market GPS navigation device, with touchscreen functionality and basic mapping software. But tucked away inside is an extra bit of hardware that lets the unit remotely tattle on its location.
Thanks to the ruckus surrounding "Girls Around Me," we now know how easy it is for apps and other services to repackage our personal data for disturbingly creepy ends. The Girls Around Me app might be the latest report to blow up in a big way over this issue, but it certainly hasn't been the first. Here are the top 10…

Kids these days have it so easy. In my day, if you wanted to stalk someone you had call them at home on a good old-fashioned analog telephone (one bonus was the lack of caller ID and/or *69) or actually break into their home and physically boil their pet bunny rabbit. Boy, have times changed.
A couple of scientists at the University of Washington managed to build a small scanner that could read the RFID signals that the Nike+iPod sports kit puts out.
