A Quick Tip by jbeswick

And thus it was, according to CNN

"Apple devices appear to be tracking their owners' locations and storing data about people's whereabouts without their knowledge, according to a report posted Wednesday on a site called iPhone Tracker.

The unauthorized surveillance started in June 2010, when the latest version of Apple's mobile operating system was released, according to two researchers who say they discovered a hidden tracking file and posted it out of concern for users."

While I will wait before passing judgment on Apple's scheming, manipulative, unethical and finger-tapping ways, I'm literally counting down the seconds until the fan-boys claim this is a valuable feature!

Heard it a minute ago on the news. I actually swtiched to an android phone, so now I wonder how they'll track my activity with it.
