Default Iphone/Ipad = Locator ( The Register.com)

iPhones secretly track 'scary amount' of your movements ? The Register

Who needs to plant a bug on you when you put one in your pocket every day.
Ipad / Ipnone save your phisical location in memory.
Oence your phone is hacked they can locate you and where youve been to.

It has been said that Android also tracks us users. it collects data on 200 latest wifi networks we've been near to, 50 latest cellular antennas we've been connected to, and even sends this data to google unlike the iphone which just keep it unprotected.

I got nothing but a french source on that one...

What is funny is that police can't track you if they don't have a mandatory paper but some company can and wont have any consequence. In my concern, as long as this info is not used by the dark side of the force or sold to any wierd person ( I'm ok with stat institute and other thing like that ) I have no problem with this.
