But it's not cool when you spy on me:
There's a program you can download to see where your iPhone has recorded you going. The biggest concern is that apps that you run on your phone could access the data. Apple has (so far) refused to comment.
Security researchers have discovered that Apple's iPhone keeps track of where you go – and saves every detail of it to a secret file on the device which is then copied to the owner's computer when the two are synchronised.
The file contains the latitude and longitude of the phone's recorded coordinates along with a timestamp, meaning that anyone who stole the phone or the computer could discover details about the owner's movements using a simple program.
Note that this information is derived from triangulating cell tower location, so turning GPS off won't make a shred of difference.
And guess what? The EULA terms and conditions contain this gem, buried in the 15,000 words:
Apple and our partners and licensees may collect, use, and share precise location data, including the real-time geographic location of your Apple computer or device. This location data is collected anonymously in a form that does not personally identify you and is used by Apple and our partners and licensees to provide and improve location-based products and services. For example, we may share geographic location with application providers when you opt in to their location services.Screw you, Apple. You think that you can slip some Lark's Vomit into the chocolate collection, and that it's OK because you list the ingredient at the end after Monosodium Glutimate, you're idiots. Trust is hard to establish, and easy to blow away, and with your attitude, you're not getting it back.
And all you iPad fanbois, it's keeping track of you, too.
