Paul Is RIGHT! Apple IS Watching You

If you’ve listened to Mark and Paul for any time at all, you know Paul is convinced “they” are watching you.  “They” know where you are, where you’ve been, and even what you have all thanks to technology.  If you were one of the millions who grabbed an IPhone or IPad device in the past 60 days, there is something you should know.

Paul is right.  “They” are watching.

The web site Oreilly.com uncovered this disturbing activity.  Apple is gathering the data on your phone without your permission.  As you travel around Montana and Wyoming, big brother is WATCHING you.

Here’s a quote from the site:

All iPhones appear to log your location to a file called “consolidated.db.” This contains latitude-longitude coordinates along with a timestamp. The coordinates aren’t always exact, but they are pretty detailed. There can be tens of thousands of data points in this file, and it appears the collection started with iOS 4, so there’s typically around a year’s worth of information at this point. Our best guess is that the location is determined by cell-tower triangulation, and the timing of the recording is erratic, with a widely varying frequency of updates that may be triggered by traveling between cells or activity on the phone itself.

Another part of the issue is the data that’s being captured can be seen by anyone with the knowledge of how to grab it. If you want an idea what information has been grabbed from your phone,
here’s an app that can help.

Does this bother you, or is just something that gets Paul fired up?
