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.

Um... Cyanogenmod uses the same code to do location caching as Android proper... References to cache.cell and cache.wifi are all over the Cyanogenmod git repo. What was your point again?
