  1. … The iPhones were tracking the user’s position and Apple collected the data. (Financial Times, page 13, 04/28/11) I am leery of mobile internet phones and computers. I don’t even like to give my discount card to the cashier in a supermarket or pharmacy, because it tracks where I’ve been and what I’m purchasing. I fear the day when I no longer can expect even a modicum of privacy. You’re thinking who cares? Perhaps you should. So, frankly, I don’t care about how cool the iPad 2 looks, now.

  2. I love the new iPad. I just got mine couple of days ago. I got the 64MB WiFi version and it works perfectly smooth. Great battery life, excelent screen, and plenty of memory for editing and uploading photos while traveling.
    No need to drag my laptop anymore :)

  3. Aparently the iPhone doesnt track your exact location but the cell towers you’ve been using. They do this in order to provide you with a better and stronger signal. The only thing they will fix is the number of days that this information is being held on the device.
    please note that Google is doing the same thing on their android devices:



  4. If you care about supermarkets and pharmacies tracking your purchases, fo what I used to do. Trade discount cards with someone else, then they are tracking someone else. — I did this for a couple of years with about 1 in 4 people agreeing to trade. Lately, I don’t bother :) …. As for the iPAD2, I bought a cheap Kindle style color reader for 1/4 the price. WiFi no 3G, Android apps, but good enought for me. To each her own.

  5. It is important to note that Flash is quickly becoming outdated in favor of other formats such as HTML5. By not having to deal with Adobe’s crap, Apple is ahead of the game.

  6. Another piece of disturbing news… In today’s “Financial Times,” a headline at page 13, reads, “TomTom apologises to customers after selling driving data to police.” What next? The police used the data “to catch speeding motorists.” My goodness gracious me! I think I’ll continue to use my paper maps the way I have for the past 30 years.
