UPDATE: Many sites have pointed out that Vice Magazine, which is accompanying John McAfee as he runs away from Belizean law enforcement, seems to have accidentally revealed his location taken by an accompanying reporter. Based on the location data in the photo's metadata (EXIF), at least at the time of that photo, he was in Guatemala, just over the border from Belize. For what it's worth, McAfee now claims that the Guatemala GPS location was fake, too. In any case for all folks who want a little more privacy with their photos, here's some tips from Lifehacker.
