"This has not been a very good year for privacy on mobile devices. It was a bad spring for Apple, as iPhone users found out their phones were, er, phoning home. iPhones log GPS data, cell information and WiFi hotspots. And they transmit all that to Apple every 12 hours. Android phones keep similar data and send it back to Google. And Windows phone users, unfortunately, should be accustomed by now to Microsoft products spying on them." (08/05/11)
