Follow Me, Follow You

Before you think I'm just bashing Apple, I will point out I've said far more complimentary things about them and their iPhone/iPad than I have Google with Android.  Just looking to head off the dissent.

Guess what?  If you have a 3G enabled iPad or an iPhone, you're being tracked.  And I'm not talking casual.  Your locations are stored in a file on the devices and are backed up to your computer if you sync.

I would like to point out this is one of the great things about Open Source.  If a feature like this were baked into Android, people examining the code could find it and use their GPL'ed rights to remove it.

Apple has done a lot good.  They are destroying the M$ monopoly and the Flash monopoly.  Their proprietary platforms are turning out to be FOSS' best friend.

But guys, if you like Apple, remember -- just because you like them doesn't mean you can trust them.
