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.

"well our guys here in the US still have to get a warrant to search the phone's contents if you don't give them permission to"

No. The federal judge ruled that TSA and border control do not need warrants to search your phones or computers.
