"telecom.kz wants to use your location."


I wonder why that website needs your location... After all it's just a news article / press release.

I suspect although this might have some minor use to track users outside Kazakhstan, it's real use is to track web site visitors from within Kazakhstan.

setCityByIp() in Javascript. They seem to only be interested if your country code comes back as KZ. First use of the MapQuest geolocation APIs I've seen, too.

I had exactly the same reaction.

So much nope.

extra nopes!
