Ipods too

I have a 4th gen ipod, has a mic, dual cameras, cost $220.00, is pretty much the same deal as an iphone, but not GSM/WCDMA or GPS. You can still make calls in Wifi, and yeah, its an ipod.

When did "add" become "drop" in American English? When an adult reads that headline and not the article one would assume T-Mobile was discontinuing Bobsled.I hear it all the time now...silly..

Bad update

I updated and now it doesn't work. I even closed the app and restarted my iPhone. It just stays on loading screen. Any suggestions? Anyone else experiencing this?

Don't believe everything you've read

I work in the wireless industry, and the first thing that jumps out about this article is the fact that iphone4 is like any other Apple product, closed...meaning you cannot access the interior of the phone. There isn't a micro SIM card slot accessible without tearing the phone apart. The second thing is T-Mobile's network...HSPA+ isn't 4G, it's 3G on Steroids. Currently there are 2 types of iphone4's on the market, one that is sold by ATT and runs off their GSM, and one that is sold by Verizon and operates on CDMA. If T-Mobile had anything to do with developing any type of software that would allow a competitors devices to function on their network don't you think it would be all over the news and in courtrooms across America? You can't...

Why is this being reported as news?

Can you explain why this is being reported as news?
As this TMoNews.com article shows, T-Mobile has been selling these since November 2010: http://bit.ly/nA4VjZ

So why is this being reported as new?

That's pretty bad when a country has to point out a major security flaw with your OS and issues a major consumer warning for their country as well because of that flaw. 😲

Google/Android/Apps/Devs ALL include notices, and not in moderation i might add, about asking for permission to use location data(for any number of reasons)..

Not to mention People, on their own, commonly use Flicker and Twitter on their devices..both track location data(see the 'Creppy' Program to track locations of twitter and flicker users)... and lets not forget Facebook Places and Foursquare(both pretty much only are funtional on mobile device even)...

So 1) people give away their location all the time anyways, giving their consent as they do it.. 2)I dont know how apple/iPhone runs, sooo. 3)Its tiring to watch lawmakers, who have no clue how this stuff really works, try to fight for end users... 4) heres more tax money going to w...

Once again your misinformed :roll:

Google android specifically asks for permission to share location data during the phone set up, and again when you first open the browser. Also allowing you to opt out if you choose. It was Apple that users were unaware of the location logging and not giving you a choice to opt out.

Way to go throwing android in along with apple over the "secret location collecting" again.

Im thinking I should unsubscribe to this feed because you guys still cant get your facts straight.

Another version of iWork I won't buy

I didn't get it for my MacBook, and I'm definitely not getting it for my iPhone.

MS word for Mac works just fine on my MacBook, and I don't plan on doing any major word processing on my phone.

This is seriously awesome.

From my experience there is nothing out there that comes close to the functionality and ease of use of iwork on the iPad. That point was driven home after spending two weeks with the Blackberry Playbook.

The mobile version of iWork is amazing, to say the least. I can't wait to get home and start messing with it on my iPhone!

Great job Apple! I knew you could do it! Thanks to those who outed them on this. A little public scrutiny goes a long ways.

The Android defense

I wonder if it'll work in court lol. "But your honor, Android does it too..." Good luck apple. As usual, they make excuses that have no merit and don't make any difference regarding their disrespect for customer privacy. Every time they cry about what other companies do, it makes them seem just like everybody else...

I think the difference is what is being done with the data.

The iPhone stores the data locally, on the phone itself and on the users computer when it is synced. Nothing is sent back to Apple, no one has access to the data but the user (and anyone the user has given permission to use his/her phone/computer)

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...

I'd be happy to play Devil's Advocate on this one.
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 you’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 ‘safety in numbers thing’. Sure someone can analyze your habits, purchases etc. but that’s pretty far outside access by any one individual. It would...
