I don't use an iPad so I don't know much but how would data be transferred from the ipad to apple anyway. (if it was) does it have 3g/4g or somthin?

Personally, I think that there should be something in place to prevent data mining and other stuff that doesn't help you keep a steady cell signal, work with an app., find your way home, etc. Also, why has Apple refused to comment? :?

wasn't it ruled legal to hack your smartphones? and if they brick it remotely, they'll be the ones breaking the law

If you have an Iphone or an Ipad you are affected. There's a file on the device that hold your location data, and it goes back a long time too.
It basically reveals where you've been for the past year (if you've had the device for that long).

That's what you get for trusting Apple, or any big corporation with no respect for its users. I'm hardly surprised.

Let me ask you: Are you looking forward to the GPS feature on Sony's next handheld now, hmm?
