I think the difference is what is being done with the data.
Google tracks user location, has it sent back to them and stores it for a period of time. They use the location database to make more money in advertising.
I don't know why the iPhone stores user data, but it doesn't appear to be stored by Apple or used by them in any way whatsoever.
This does not warrant a lawsuit.
Stirring the pot...
OK, we all know location based services aren't free; data is acquired and sold for market analysis and ultimately creates the revenue streams that pay for this cool stuff.
As I understand it, the difference between what Apple has done vs. Google is that Google uploads data to its servers directly. Other than cookies in your browser or maybe an encrypted cache on your phone (depending on how youâ€™ve set it up) that's pretty much it. It pushes data so far upstream that you basically become a face in a huge crowd - sort of a â€˜safety in numbers thingâ€™. Sure someone can analyze your habits, purchases etc. but thatâ€™s pretty far outside access by any one individual. It...

Saving apps after an HD Wipe
Thus, everything that's on my Iphone is more or less an orphan. There's no files on my computer whatsoever. I had to redownload Itunes, so there's no memory whatsoever of anything essentially.

may sound stupid but a simple question
I feel like a retard. lol.
Time to upgrade. Wanting to buy the 3gs, but I don't want to change my data plan. Any sugestions?
Anyone know when the release date is for the new 4.0 update??
Does anyone know when is the ETA for the new 4.0 update? Also, the online rumor mill has been going crazy with "leaked" images and info of a new iphone 4G.... I'm sure that Apple will release a new iPhone sometime soon since they have released one every year since the original when they release the new updates. Does anyone know when the new iPhone will be on the market? I've heard rumors that Verizon is getting the iphone, but then I've heard that they need to work on their system before bringing the iphone to their line up. All I'm hearing are "rumors" and would ...
Turning off an Iphone without using the top button? Possible?
Is there a way to turn my iphone off that doesn't require using that button? I'd like to reboot the thing, as it's been searching for a signal for the last hour, but I'm not sure I can without simply draining the battery...
If anybody has any ideas, let me know. :-)
