Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG): Closing price $874.90
According to Engadget, Google is prepping a new mobile service that compensates users if they permit their mobile behavior to be observed. It seems that the project, called internally ”Mobile Meter,” employs iOS and Android applications that intelligently monitor app usage and web browsing habits and then transmit the data back to Google. Google would not comment on what it considers “rumor and speculation,” but Engadget‘s sources reported that the Mobile Meter program will be all voluntary. It will be required that participants give their consent (or opt in) prior to joining.
