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.

Thom hexdumped his Iphone and Itunes and dissassembled all the code. Read it all and found no trace of it.

Only way to be sure, so that is what he has done.
