Apple spying on you with Iphone & Ipad!
 
The iphone & ipad is secretly traking your every move!
Everywhere you go, the devices internally store a year worth of data,
and Apple is collecting all the data, regardless what you do!
And you cannot opt out of it even when turning off location or any setting!
Time, location, and gps information...
I hope they get hell for this..
I advise anyone with iPhone to switch to another device!
Devices:
iPad2, OS4..


Check these links!!
arstechnica
"Anyone who gains access to this single file could likely determine the location of the user's home, the businesses he frequents, the doctors he visits, the schools his children attend, and the trips he has taken over the past months or even a year,"

Gizmodo..."This is a map of everywhere I've been for nearly the last year. Everywhere."...

theatlantic..."They've been doing it for a year and storing the data in an unencrypted file, and no one knows exactly for what purpose"..

readwriteweb..."The discovery of a file called "consolidated.db" was made by data scientists Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden, who were initially looking at mobile data and thinking about ways to visualize it. They'll present their findings today at the Where 2.0 conference."..
"This recording process seems to have started with Apple's iOS 4 update, which means that there could be almost a year's worth of location data stored - literally hundreds of thousands of data points."..

This news came out today 4/20 across various sites and also on the news.
Why Apple records and leaves this data unencrypted to hackers is unknown.
So looks like Apple is the worst OS for privacy, when you can't do anything about it!

Sounds like its worst than Google.

I wonder how many people it tracked coming out of the "420" clinic??

And with crap like this happening:

Red Tape - Gadget gives cops quick access to cell phone data

ACLU: Michigan cops stealing drivers' phone data | Crave - CNET

Apple should give you a way to wipe your device or turn this feature off...

Why they do this? To help those hackers?
I know that sumsung also install spyware on its products, they are ugly businessmen.
We only allow Apple iPhone spy to be used in a right way.

now-a-days, there is no such thing as privacy! anybody can find out anything about you whether it's Apple, Google or some other company. you''re being tracked and monitored no matter what you do.

I don't think so! Apple is one of leading tech giant and why will Apple track anyone. It's totally rubbish to down the position of company.
