Default Re: iPhones Are Secretly Tracking You!

I guess you didn't read the link to the thread about the explanation?

Other phone manufacturers DO indeed have this cell triangulation, but they just let it sit dormant until a court order is provided for tracking (Magus even said that in that thread). Apple's is active, and it can be passed from device to device, via a wifi hotspot. What Apple is gathering info for, is what people are riled up about.
