Your iPhone has a hidden feature: It tracks and records your location constantly whether you want it to or not.

Since one would have to get the device in hand to access this information, I can't see what the fuss is about. Then again, I'm not the paranoid type.

In this country, the attacks on our freedom are coming from every direction. Any caution is a good thing, and it isn't paranoia if they are really after you.

That is why I do not have a cell phone to use regularly!

I have one for emergencies , with batteries out, and in a dark place when I am not using it!

I always keep my computers turned off, especially if they have mic or video capabilities!

Paranoid .......absolutely

I hope that people do realize that once the Chinese figure out how to make this exploit work for them, they will cause uncontrollable havoc like they have done with the Code Red virus 10 years ago.

It's legal here as well..but only on company time..most companies are also starting to use GPS tracking in company vehicles also..big brother is watching you..side note..if you plan on doing something illegal..leave your phones at where you should be..
