Also in the movie while walking though the mall it takes you picture then give you personal ads based on you. This was recently tried in I believe the UK. While driving down the road a camera would take a picture of your tag and then up the road it would provide a advertisement based on information they found on that tag.

Apple is about to get a big awakeing!
Job's will be lucky if he is selling Iphones at Apple store unless he becomes Bubba's room mate!
I just want to see the clip when he gets smart and yells then is escorted off by hopefully a woman in uniform!
I took a while and Bill Gates cost Microsoft billions because of his ego and lost!

As long as they use it to improve their network I'm all about it. They sure could use the help fixing their piss poor network.

Apple can't really do anything to fix the network.....since, you know, that's AT&T's problem.... and if you needed to know where you were, Cell Phone companies already can track your location...those cute little "Family Monitoring" upgrades (of course costing about $10/month) for your account.
I'm not paranoid, but I also don't give a damn about location based ads. Advertisers in general need a huge jump since their losing tons of money to the internet, so location-based and mobile is the next thing to focus on.
It's when iAds starts flashing an Ad on my phone that I can't exit out of because Apple has a patent on that to..and that Ad is telling me I prefer to purchase this type of cereal based on the information they collected from using my phone as a credit card...you can see where this would go
Actually that would be cool if Apple kept track of my groceries for meJaydeTech-Themes, Tutorials, Hacks, Tips, and MoreCurrent WIP- Natural Theme

I wonder when apple collects this data if it consumes data usage on your plan? If it does, how much data is used each time they collect?This post infers no rights and is provided as is.

@hmar9333....quote "How about you stop obnoxiously posting in bold orange letters?
Maybe then I'll listen to you."
I wouldn't p*ss off the veterans of MMi... Especially*since you're new to forum and only 3 post's in....respect your elders my man...Plus, the colored text options are availiable for a reason, so you can use them... And he was correct, it's "we're" which I'm not sure if you know this but it means "we are" not were...even on internet forums proper English is called for if you expect people to give a d*nm about what you have to say or think... Just saying... Welcome to MMi!
^^***Especially*since you're new to forum and only 3 post's in... correction, I meant posts not post's since the added " 's " displays possession and not the plural version of the word... Also, the " * " was a typo and since I'm on my Jesus Phone 4, you can't edit your posts as you would be able to on a computer... Have a great day MMi.

Good I'm kind of getting tired of apple taking the "my way or the highway" approach to their business.

It's just that one of my pet peeves of the Internet is people that post in random, unnecessary colours. It's like having a conversation with someone that keeps shouting at you even though they are standing right next to you, as though they just really want attention.
And I know that I only have 3 (4 now) posts, but I do forget sometimes, you see, I am a member of TouchArcade and I have >2000 posts there and it just feels like it's all the same website.
I also often have trouble conveving sarcastic tones over the Internet because, well.... It's the Internet.

iAds may sound good to devs, but as a purely consumer level user, I'm very unexcited. iAds are likely to be an annoyance at the least and a PITA at the worst, resulting in less satisfied users of the devices.
The location information gathering is a bit unsettling. I don't think anyone needs to gather info about my whereabouts. I'm a pretty unlikely suspect for any crimes, and certainly not the type easily influenced by ads. Why should I give up any more privacy for someone else to make a buck or worse, pass on my location to the authorities on suspicion of some future crime that is considered a right up to now (sedition, offensive language, leaving my porch light on all night, excessive toilet flushing...)?
...a knock at the door...I would like to see Congress (or better yet consumers) put pressure on Steve to allow iOS users to opt out of iAds or at least make accidental touches on the ad less likely (press and hold to follow?). I don't care to have any unsolicited ads, so if iAds are too invasive or obnoxious, I may opt out of apps that use them. If they are easy to ignore, that may be a different story.
Sir, please come with me to the station. Your credit card purchases, internet forum posts, and movement about the city leads us to believe you are making unlicensed modifications to your _____ (home, car, iPhone, chain saw, kids...).
For now I guess I will have to get by with iOS 4 Settings>General>Location Services set to OFF.
