Submission + - Suprrise: Apple does indeed collect location data (wsj.com)

joeszilagyi writes: "Everyone has been going nuts over this story, and the fact that iPhones cache up to a years' worth of location data (Android phones only cache a tiny time-limited amount of this data). There was speculation it was all a bug. There were flame wars between Apple fans and foes. Well, surprise: Apple fessed up last year to collecting such data."

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.

Comment Real Men Browse The Internets (Score 3, Insightful) 308

A Real Man who wants to visit websites will load each site in a separate browser instance with a unique agent string and a different browser vendor and build each time with all cookies and scripts (1st, 2nd, 3rd, 87th party, etc.) hard-blocked, and only from within a series of totally unique VM environments of no less than Windows XP (Home and Pro), Vista (all 4,556 varieties), Win 7 (all varieties) and no less than 1,396 versions and flavors of Linux or Unix derived operating systems, and each randomly selected for each site visit, which are only done from a Tor onion connection running inside of the VM, which is in turn routed through a Tor onion connection running from the top-level main desktop that you're doing all this from, and each VM is promptly rolled back to pre-website status after your visit is done--and that's for EVERY SINGLE VISIT. ANYTHING LESS THAN THIS LETS THE INTERNET RAYS PENETRATE YOUR TINFOIL THINKING CAP.
