hotchocolate, 28 Apr 2011Android could say the same thing to apple too =)Although you are given the option in Android...
MdN, 27 Apr 2011I'm not an Apple fan (cool phone, though, too bad about the signal and some specs) but look at... moreThat's right cause Apple iPhone since came out and kills all the big names in the game, that's why there's too many haters around from other competitor that doesn't want Apple to sell there iPhone like water, and already has the same issue.
This is the joke of the year :'D im crying of laughing
'bug' :D will be '''fixed'''
It's not a problem at all
Apple fanboys gently give JOBS to their location information
You mad women? Steve never admits, that guy would rather have one of his ba..s cut off then face that his wrong.
and i have a filling that this "fix" will only hide it better , not get rid of it
Apple have merely highlighted the fact that Cell phones have started to erode our own privacy further. The terms and conditions are there for anyone to see. What's sad is that people are focusing on this, and not the fact that operators track our every location. Every time you download an app that uses GPS, you are putting yourself at risk of being tracked. Very few people actually read the terms and conditions because they are eager to get the latest software.
[deleted post]Lol! Always forget to put me user name XD
All disputes aside... all apple users and all other users have to agree that this is obviously a lie that this is a just now descovered bug. Please. No told u so involved or anything.

Anonymous, 27 Apr 2011Eeveryone is so scared that apple knows where they are, people, no one cares where you are, st... moreIf you don't mind a company tracking your location without your consent then you probably don't mind if they make a copy of every text message you sent without you knowing about it, then you probably don't mind if they make a copy of every document you have in your computer without you knowing about it, then you probably don't mind them turning on the front camera without your consent....
Is this about being self-important, or is this about a company crossing the line when it comes to privacy? Geez, the phone keeps on tracking you even AFTER YOU TURN THE FEATURE OFF.

I currentl... moreEither you've never worked for a mobile carrier & you're just making it up to look "cool" on a mobile forum. Or you were employed as a menial (maybe a cleaner) & weren't trusted to know what every department in these companies were doing.
There are documented cases here in the UK where police have used evidence obtained from mobile carriers to pinpoint where & when text messages were sent from a mobile in order to convict.
Kieran Grieve is a famous example. He killed his girlfriend & sent bogus texts from her mobile in an attempt to convince police she was still alive. They used tracking data to prove that the texts were sent from his home & not from the city centre as he was claiming. This was all several months after she died.
How else did they know this if the carrier wasn't tracking & storing his location data?

A magic fix which is gonna secretly remove all data collect before enough fanboys remove the controversial files. No doubt the software 'fix' is gonna implement further tracking algorithms. Pathetic. Poor fanboys,how many times a year are they conned in every conceivable day by their apple gods
