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.

That explain it well enough?

Nope. That explains the need to require the last known location. Not the last 100, 1000 etc, and again that would be an application use case not an OS one.

You are obviously without a clue how AGPS works on the CDMA/GSM networks. Go troll somewhere else.

Ask for a fanboi response, get one I suppose.
