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.

Apparently you can not turn off tracking without a specific hack app for that -- see http://technolog.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2011/04/25/6524572-iphone-trac...

Apple Inc continues its silence on the topic. Not helping their reputation, in the view of many. Either they're maintaining silence due to the threat of lawsuits or they have no valid explanation.
