Ah shucks, it does sadden me so to see Apple get in trouble… over anything really. It’s kind of a nice relief to see something negative associated with them, since their name usually goes along with nothing more than glowing product reviews, astounding financial reports, and “gee, aren’t they awesome” blog articles.

An excerpt from the article:

Much of the concern about the iPhone and iPad tracking stems from the fact the computers are logging users’ physical coordinates without users knowing it — and that that information is then stored in an unencrypted form that would be easy for a hacker or a suspicious spouse or a law enforcement officer to find without a warrant.

Ok, I know I’m being super petty and showing blatant jealousy over the usual glow Apple gets. But hey, I’m one of the underdogs. Aren’t we entitled to a little jealousy, and the occasional satisfying smirk when the big guy gets a thorn?
