    FINE THEM !

    What if next they will install a keylogger just to be able to offer in the future a nebulous "feature" ?

    Why not cache and send to apple my bank accounts info if I use it from the iphone ? Just in case they would ever devise in the future a "feature" to "help" me in case I forgot my password ?

    FINE HIM. Only that way they might stop these constant freedom/privacy violations.
    Jesus will come and deliver the 5.0 Apple FW. Jailbreak soon after, just wait a "few days" more.

    Sorry, but to me this is a typical example of a biased article about a quite reasonable answer, that was not needed in the first place. The guy even says it's bull before transcribe the whole text, what a cheap move!

    But hey, that's media on the internet era, right? Everybody have the opportunity to take a bite of the big dog to borrow some publicity and walk away smiling... don't you love the web?

    I wonder if there's anything else like this that we don't know about?

    Thanks captain obvious. I'm pretty sure the correct option to prevent the Sony scandal going on right now would have been programming it correctly, and not the way it currently is as well.

    You completely missed my point with your rebuttal. Let me break it down for you.

    In my previous comment "us" was referring to the users stressing over this "unauthorized tracking of locations" (even though we agreed in the Terms and Conditions, in a way). In Apple's response, they basically bashed "us" by stating they do not keep the data, it's anonymous, and it's used to aid location services; the exact opposite of what this entire hype was about.

    i love how people are so ****** naive!! apple tracks you, its not a bug, they just have really great excuses to make it sound pretty and have people still buy their products! If you guys noticed they keep talking about wifi and cell towers, but they cant give you a croncrete ****** answer!! and they will keep tracking you, even after "the update" they said it themselves. Wake up people!!! other phones like android and htc dont track you and we still get good "accurate information"

    people are going all crazy about this kinda "OH no apple stored my location agin" i bet if I go on Facebook i'll find thousands of people telling about where they checked in right now and half of them even check in when they are on the toilet.

    You are the naive person! What makes you believe the android and htc doesn't track your data? Is it same corporate D-Bags that told you Apple doesn't? Is it the wall street journalists who would never lie to you? Or is it the hackers who have yet to find how they track us, even though it took forensics over a year to find this one?

    You tell me, Sir Kingat, what makes you believe they don't track you? And what makes you believe it all wasn't just a "mistake" on Apple's part?

    Apple is getting soft without Jobs at the helm, Jobs would never allowed admitting to even a bug in the programming. Apple is infallible!!!

    Do you even have an Android? They let owners opt out and turn off the location tracking. Unlike Apple's current setup. Which btw saves a lot of battery.

    They check in with full knowledge of the owner and have option not to use it, this tracking is done in the background on iPhone and no option to turn off!

    So... typical of apple: blame the user for their own faults and use fanboys to mitigate reasonable criticism. They also said you were not holding it right. Yeah, right. As for the T&C, they have not really been proven binding in any court of law (nobody has ever dared to test them... just in case they end-up being found completely non-binding in a public way).

    Wow Apple, I'm not even sure how to wrap my head around it. But if they have to call it a "bug" to fix the problem then so be it. That's the best we are gonna get any ways.

    If you want more you can contact bloomberg to find out the lawfirm that is doing the lawsuit against Apple, join in along with the original 2 people to get a share of the pie.

    3. Why is my iPhone logging my location?
    The iPhone is not logging your location. Rather, it's maintaining a database of Wi-Fi hotspots and cell towers around your current location



    i love the smokescreen here. no, it's not logging, it's doing something just LIKE logging only we call it something else here at apple, therefore it's not "logging"
