How cute. He thinks privacy still exists.


Pretty much I'll take what I can get, but seriously, no, if you have ever used the Internet, there is data on you. Oddly enough Google doesn't store your porn preferences if something I read is to be believed, but past that, everything you've ever done online has been recorded unless you've switched to one of only a few small-time browsers that don't record anything. And even then, search engines keep your search history, anything you've bought is stored by stuff on those sites, and so on. So, rather than expecting the whole system to suddenly go against its own best interests and not store anything anymore ever, yes, I'll pick my battles and say they should at least make my raging Chuck E. Cheese addiction harder to find out about. *goes to line up some Parmesan*

I'm gone from here for good. This place gave me many memories to take with me and shaped me greatly. I still care about you guys. I just can't stay.

Are you surprised?

I'm surprised.


No... really.

It's not like Steve Jobs is the kind of megalomaniacal prick that would run a company that would do such a thing.

All jokes aside, holy crap, would it ever be nice to be a hit man with a few tech skills right about now. Getting hands on those files would pretty much equal a goldmine to anyone with no conscience.

I'm not really sure how someone with no conscience could exploit the goldmine that is when I go to the grocery store and what...

Oh, hit man, right I didn't see that until just now, re-reading to see if I missed something and I did, which was that bit.

Generally I think a hitman would be able to do their own legwork easier then stealing and cracking the file from the phone.

Hitmen also don't really pose a credible threat to the security of the Average Joe H. American

edit: I mean, realistically, for the Hitman to get hold of the phone, they would have to wait until the person has parted with it. People carry their phones everywhere with them, setting it in a stationary and unattended area only when they sleep or charge it. Then they could just off them and be gone instead of stealing the phone after breaking in, cracking the file out, then breaking back in and replacing it.

I -guess- you -could- pick-pocket it too, but there are many chemicals that you could just as easily expose the person to with just a touch of them or their belongings that would then transfer to their food/drink or to their hands and then to food or drink. It seems a lot of effort just to find something out that the person who hired you already likely provided, since they wanted this person dead so much and in a hurry.

The company is keeping track of your whereabouts so presumably they can target you with advertisement -- isn't there enough advertisement already? Do they need your GPS location for this? I find this ridiculously intrusive, the kind of intrusive that if the fed were doing it there would be people absolutely livid and screaming for officials' heads, but because it's a company suddenly it's not necessarily so bad?

This is a violation. I bet it's covered somewhere in the EULA but this is still a violation. This should be upfront, not hidden in a file to be discovered.

You know, it's also a tad more on the Lazy side than anything else.

I mean, Apple is trying to get free survey in unbiased form from all their customers so they can track what their costumers do and provide ads and services themed to that so they can cash in more. Ok.

But they could've done this as an optional program, like, inform you that if you signed up for this you would be tracked, but in return you would get some benefit from it, like free services or somesuch.

So it's Lazy AND greedy and sounds really bad. I'm pretty sure they are being moral about the usage of that info, but it's more about what it looks like than what it really is...
