Apple There's a bit of a stink going on - even in major media - about something iOS 4's been doing. Apparently, iOS 4 has been storing a list of locations and timestamps to a hidden, but readable file in a standard database format. The locations are triangulated using cell towers, and generally aren't as accurate as for instance GPS. Still, the file is stored without any form of protection on both your iPhone as well as your desktop.

Why wait for apple to fix it when they want? You have to wonder.. it took effort to design and code this capability, one has to wonder why.

Get an open source OS and fix it quicker.
