Apple Does Not Track Movements, Android Does

According to Steve Jobs, Apple does not use any of the location data that is stored on an individual’s iPad or iPhone. Apparently the configuration file that was recently discovered is a bug and the info collected within that database file is stored on the device itself. When an iPhone user recently threatened Jobs that he would switch to an Android phone, Jobs claimed “we don’t track anyone, [Android] does.” I assume some worried consumers contacted Google because they recently admitted that they in fact do track Android users, but they do so anonymously.

A Google spokesman explained that Google tracks users’ movements to provide customized services such as maps, improved search results for nearby shops or restaurants, and to study traffic on various roads.
