Thread: Apple Target of Federal Probe Due to Possible Personal Info Leaks

  1. #21
    Hopefully they resolve this, I understand wanting the info for marketing/advertising but come on don't be digging into my stuff without my knowing, I dig thru you big business panty drawers!

    Oh and can someone please tell me what the hell adsheet is, keep seeing it pop up in my sbsettings and i'm pretty sure it has something to do with this same convo being discussed here. Give you an example, I can turn phone on, under multitasking nothing running, have not opened anything...check it a little while later check sbsettings processes and adsheet, mail, ipod will all be open without me opening any of those apps? Any thoughts?? I've searched the web and found little on this :/

    I agree to a point that some people can't fathom.

    I believe it's just a system process like windows explorer on a windows based PC, I may be wrong but that's about as much as I know

    I'm sure we will know the results within 5 or 6 years. Apple will delay this case into oblivion. Maybe I'm wrong on this.....but it seems to me that everything BAD Apple does never seems to make it on the news....and if it does the details are sketchy and un-confirmed. But everything good that they do is on the news in a split second. I never hear of any of these lawsuits and federal investigations on any local or national news.

    Lol... Advertising is a "must" ... iAd and facebook ads sound familiar?
    no people do not read EULA which make it useless, and no it is not a must. They can put what ever they want in EULA, it is basically useless. There's already a precedence where EULA was made useless because the plaintiff showed that people agree to EULA without reading it, especially ones where you must agree to EULA in order to use the product.
    If I do not use iTunes or any other apps then there would not be any ads, but they can literally put ads as the phone's background or something even more invasive.
