Apple is recording your every move…

…and I’m not OK with it. While I don’t think there is any huge Apple or Government conspiracy involved it is not acceptable to record this kind of information without informing the customer. Apple should be ashamed.

But do keep in mind that there are many other ways Apple or law enforcement can track your movement aside from this file and that don’t rely on any capabilities within the phone (i.e. are network side tracking mechanisms). Which also means you are trackable regardless of your phone’s brand or OS platform. If you really don’t want anyone knowing where you are you need to turn your phone off. It is the only real solution at this time. You can partly thank or blame the move to support 911 from cell phones for this situation.
