    Ya and why would even have an iPhone, they would probably have a supercool spy phone in their shoe.

    Droid only tracks you if you allow it. Google has the decency to ask first.

    People who keep giving saying law enforcement can track you so what is the big deal? They have to get a court order in order to do such things, and things they gather that can be used must be what the court order says. i.e. can't bust him for drug deal when the court order is for illegal arms.

    A government have rules when they invades privacy of an individual, apparantly Apple is above the law because they don't care about that.

    I've downloaded program and saw places I went from the logs, I know my iPhone was tracking me before I used the blocking program.
    Android do track but you can OPT-OUT! and turn the location feature off.
    You can OPT out on the iphone too.. www.oo.apple.com

    Its really disturbing to see how many people will agree to whatever Apple does legal or illegal.

    So many lemmings on here act like if Apple does something illegal or unethical, its ok, "they must have a good reason" any one else does it, its wrong.

    Makes me want to stop buying Apple products and supporting such behavior.

    BadApple lol

    I don't want to be tracked by anybody and I've got nothing to hide. So what you said is invalid.

    I've already decided to get out of iPhone which basically eliminates all Apple products for my personal use once my contract is up. I've moved company's phones over to Android OS phones, now only if the art department stop insist on using Apple computers then I can be completely Apple free.





    BTW I love the picture used for this thread, shows how shady Jobs really is. Wort on his nose and a red apple in his hand, could probably pass off as Snow White's Wicked Stepmother.

    I really don't mind that my phone is keeping track of my locations. It does bother me that this was being done secretly, and Apple denies it. But if it were an option in Settings, I would have enabled it from the start. I have nothing to hide, and actually found the info interesting when I saw it on a map. I have always known that cell towers triangulate my location. I'm not going to erase the info, or run untrackerd.

    Statements like this are what make threads like this a waste of time. There is a big difference in having someones triangulated Lat+Long locations stored on their personal computer that they decided to sync their phone to, and someone looking through your window.

    Let's start with the most obvious difference. You signed an EULA that allowed them to record that information, unless you are a very interesting individual I highly doubt you have signed an agreement with Peeping Tom to allow him to take a peek when he felt like it.

    Next would be the fact that in all these years Apple has yet to actually retrieve these logs. For those of you a little behind the curve, this finding about location tracking is nothing new. It has been implemented in our phones for years.

    The only relevant, educated post I have seen in this thread was the one related to the fact that law enforcement agencies must at least have the proper paperwork before retrieving private information such as a list of where you have been. Of course, even that has been covered considering that Apple, *along with several other companies across the globe*, have covered there bases when it comes to small invasions of privacy like this one.

    If you want to be realistic, when you sync your phone all of your data is backed up to your computer as well, ranging from pictures to complete contact lists, in the same recursed directory as this consolidated list, should that not be an invasion of privacy as well? Oh wait, it would only be an invasion of privacy if they were actually taking the information pulled from your phone, which they are not. ( Unless of course you don't like sending in bug reports, then, as a professional software engineer all I can do is give you a g'day, enjoy your broken product and stop complaining when bugs aren't being fixed on your timeline. )

    It is more like someone put a program in the driver of the camera, take pictures once in awhile and store it in the computer without people's knowledge. Driver is set to update itself, which would give access to these picture files to the company when they intend to use it.

    For someone that does not want to be tracked, you live a rather transparent life. I will be vague, due to the fact that you do not want to be tracked, but here are some interesting details I found in under 10 minutes. Initials M.L. Visited the state next to your own not too long ago ( Looks like about a week - two weeks ago, I could have dug further and probably got a *very* accurate date ). You drive a modified import, that I could probably also get a license plate number for if I really wanted it.

    If you do not want to be followed, then be less transparent in your everyday life. If they had a purpose for following you, then the tracking on your iPhone should be the least of your worries.

    *Ok, realistically 99% of the thread was a waste of time. Not too many valid arguments ever pop-up on this site any more. The news runs late, biased, and seems to be nothing more than news to spark flame wars between groups that can not complete coherent thoughts.*

    This definitely can't be Jobs. Why would anyone accuse another company of tracking as if it's a norm while simultaneously denying tracking themself? It doesn't make sense.

    People that do not like what apple is doing with there PAST Locations are really going over board with this Privacy thing.
    1. If i were a stalker(which im not) how in the world would i know you had a file on your iphone that could tell me where you have been last month. Most stalkers are not "Techies" and probably dont even know what a jailbreak is.
    2. YOU AGREED TO IT ON THE TERMS OF USE!!!!!!!!
    3. If you dont like it, there are already things that you can do to stop it. For Example that package in cydia that will remove the file.
    4. Its really not that big of a deal. APPLE has seen where youve been last month or the month before that,BIG DEAL, they DONT TRACK YOU!!!
    The next time you jump into say THATS ILLEGAL AHHHH IM ANGRY!!!!
    Think what could apple want? maybe they want to adress service issues with the phone compaines. Maybe they want to create certian apple stores in some places. I Dont Know But, I REALLY DONT CARE!!!
    To Apple: Keep up the good work and geep those amazing products coming!
