But does the average person really need to be concerned with this? Those of you who are freaking out sound like you're up to no good.
What are you guys planning? To kid nap the presidents daugthers.
But now you can't go though with your plan because apple is tracking your data usage?

This is about property rights not privacy. The information collected in consolidated.db is my information, thus my property. I do not give apple permission to use my property without paying me for it. I do not give things for free unless I want to, yes if they pay me what I think is a fair sum (my choice as it is my property) then they can use it ( i retain all rights and expect to be payed by any person passing along or using said property). However if my price is to high then they can just use someone elses property who doesnt think it is of any value.
Value is in the eye of the beholder, and you set your own value or price. They dont have to buy it if they dont want to.

This could be an issue what if someone was cheating on their girl or guy and the other used this app to find out where he was going when he said he was somewhere else. I work for Mercedes and they got sued because a wife used the tele-aid system to track the vehicle by reporting it stolen to them finding her husband in a motel with another girl, now they require a police report before releasing location info on the cars. I am in no way freaking out over this, but I got a text message from a friend who knows nothing about computers and doesn't even have an iphone that linked to this app. This IS a privacy issue IMO if it was encrypted by default in the backup then that would not be as big of an issue, but most users don't even know what encryption is.

Now if only they can come up with a tweak to block the police from using the UFED handset. It's just not right that they can download all of our info from our phones.

I have to agree with most of the people saying, 'who cares?' First of all, this isn't really GPS quality data, so much as it is a list of towers you connect to- hardly missile guidance quality data. If you plan on committing a crime, just don't take your phone while you're casing, or executing. This idea of 'privacy' in relation to networked devices is simply naive, and has been since the days of ARCNet (circa '76) to anyone who knows what they are talking about. The fact that people don't know what they are talking about, don't read what they are agreeing to, or are just realizing that they haven't for a long time is kinda sad and their own fault.
Nobody climbs into the cockpit of a 747 expecting to be able to fly having never gone to flight school, and yet there is a real belief that people have a 'right' to a computer experience, provided by manufacturers, that allows them to be completely ignorant of a highly complex device. What's worse, unlike airplanes, everyone needs to know how to use a computer to do their job- yet do not feel they should be obligated to learn or read anything related to their use.
I wonder if the same people jumping up and down about having their data tracked, would be so adamantly opposed if it was used by S&R or law enforcement to find them if they were missing and save their lives?

If you honestly think the government hasn't seen this same article and story and hasn't thought "o hell ya, that'll make it easy to track X million Americans" then your nuts.
Patriot act basically let's them do whatever they want. Legal or not. They don't care they just say two words and all is well
"national security" boom done.
