Don't panic but Apple knows exactly where you are/been

WASDted

This week on Oreilly.com, Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden revealed their discovery that Apple tracks and saves your location via iOS4 through your iPhone or iPad. This has sent a wripple of concern across the country and many people are demanding to know why Apple stores this info and how they intend to use it.

Apple managed to ruffle the feathers of senator Al Franken who sent a letter directly to Steve Jobs . If you have an iPhone or an iPad I urge you to watch the 20 minute video of Allan and Warden who showcase the possibilities of iOS location tracking. Pay close attention around the 12 minute mark where Allan showcases his travelling behavior graphically, based on the info extracted from his iPhone.[youtube]GynEFV4hsA0[/youtube]Your cell phone provider tracks your location; so do some cars (via GPS); some local law enforcement agencies track your cell data as well . So are you concerned with Apple tracking your every move? Take the survey at the top and write your comments below. This should be an interesting discussion.
