    IPhone Stored Location in Test Even if Disabled .

    By JENNIFER VALENTINO-DEVRIES, TECHNOLOGY, APRIL 25, 2011

    IPhone Stored Location Even if Disabled - WSJ.com

    Apple Inc.'s iPhone is collecting and storing location information even when location services are turned off, according to a test conducted by The Wall Street Journal.

    The location data appear to be collected using cellphone towers and Wi-Fi access points near a user's phone and don't appear to be transmitted back to Apple. Apple didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

    Still, the fact that the iPhone is collecting and storing location data—even when location services are turned off—is likely to renew questions about how well users are informed about the data being gathered by their cellphones. The fact that the iPhone stores months' worth of location data was disclosed by two researchers last week.

    In some ways, all the uproar about Apple saving location data on its iOS device users is old news. Guess what? Big Brother, or Big Google, also collects geo-location information from its mobile, Android-powered devices. Itís like anything else in computing: geo-location can provide great services and resources, but it can also be abused.

    I had a good dumbphone and sold it. I'm reconsidering, lol. Some dumbphones have almost smartphone-like features these days.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    Hi Diva,

    When I was a kid thru age 33 I lived next door to my Aunt & Uncle, it was a semi attached house. we had a "power phone" which was surplus army navy, much as was used in the TV Show M*A*S*H...if we needed to speak to each other you would bang on the common wall, which meant to go pick up the phone...I often think we have come a long way since then...but at what cost???


    take care,

    Jay
