Secret iPhone file records user's whereabouts

It has been discovered that iPhones can be used to monitor people’s whereabouts and track where they go through a secret file contained within the device.

The discovery was made by two security researchers who discovered the file, which contains the latitude and longitude of the phone’s recorded coordinates as well as a timestamp which are copied onto the owner’s computer when synchronised.

It is thought that up to a year’s data could be stored on some owner’s phones and was included in Apple’s iOS 4 update, however it does not seem to transmit the information to Apple itself.

Apple has so far declined to comment on whether the file can be removed or explain its purpose.

can go online n make it ring even if its off or silent

then see the location on a map

its actually pretty good, although i dont like people sneakily having something i dont know about

its widely reported that if you're wanted for serious crime having an iphone basically means you're pissed.

the thing knows everything about your life and records it.. next feds know exactly how to get it.

Philosophy stems from the self alone .a persons views ,beliefs ,ethics ,morals ,personal traits ,experiences their whole personal being so excuse me if I think some jumped up tutor ramming down my neck and a curriculam of what they think philosophy is .its a personal thing can't be taught in a clasroom..yeah you can say it good to gain extra thinking and differing understandings on others philosophy etc but I can gain thata from an internet connection and be intuned into the personal phikosophies and worlds with out going uni.to me that demeens the whole point having a structured course on a structorless way of thinking
