Apple hauled before the South Korean watchdog

Written by Nick Farell


Tough questions on the iPhone
South Korea's Communications Commission is asking Apple some tough questions about the location data being stored on iPhones and iPads.

South Korea is the latest government which is somewhat cross with Jobs' Mob for spying on its customers. France, Germany, and Italy have all told Apple they want to have a quiet word with the outfit about location data collection.

In the US Apple is facing questions from US Sentaor Al Franken and US Representative Ed Markey about why Jobs' Mob things it is a good idea to track fan boys. Apple has not said anything official, but apparently Steve Jobs told an iPhone user that Apple had not spied on anyone and it was all a made up story. Google, he said, did spy on users.

They accused google of spying over wifi data locations, and what is so different about phone user's location? I think Apple has committed more crime over google. You don't like FBI tracking you down what more a private companies knows where you are.

Well, Google's case had a twist, it was some script kiddie that worked at them and who though "why shouldn't I spy on people"... I see a lot of that all over the university's computers that doesn't mean the university's staff is responsible for the spying.

Apple's case is different... they did it but won't admit it and now they are trying to lie their way out of it.
