Turns out the iPhone is storing a hellova lot more information than you thought including snapping a screenshot every time you close out of the built-in mapping application, and tagging GPS, time, and phone info on pics taken online, allowing someone to trace a photo back to the spot where a pic was taken and the phone which took it. The good news: the police are using the data to help solve a variety of crimes. The bad news: you’re personal phone is a lot less private than you thought.

    CapnCarrot, don’t steal my iPhone and go to “those” clubs you enjoy so. Now, if you go to the good strip clubs (one where women get naked), I will join you!

      My Condorman fan club may not be your cup o’ tea, but we know how to bring the awesome.

    This is yet another example of why Steve Jobs is a complete left handed dick. Along with his previous world wide dick move the invention of the mouse. Yes by the invention of such devise he forced an entire generation of men to whack with their lefts.
    It’s amazing that an iphone can do all that stuff and still drop a call in a wide open space.

      Steve Jobs didn’t invent the mouse. It was reinvented a few times before Xerox PARC paired it with a windowed GUI, which Apple, and later Microsoft, stole.
