BREAKING: Apple Confirms iCloud, iOS 5, & Lion @ WWDC 2011

Hey guys, looks like Apple has decided to give us a little preview of what’s to come at WWDC 2011 through an official press release that they sent out this morning to the press.

Apple has confirmed that iOS 5 & Mac OS X Lion will be 2 main talking points at WWDC on June 6th, but also, they have confirmed “iCloud”. This is very interesting.

This may be why Apple has been rallying press from various countries, countries that will support iCloud at launch. This has been my theory for a while, contrary to other reports saying that it was because a new iPhone would be introduced at the event.

Here is Apple’s official statement on the matter:

“Apple CEO Steve Jobs and a team of Apple executives will kick off the company’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) with a keynote address on Monday, June 6 at 10:00 a.m. At the keynote, Apple will unveil its next generation software – Lion, the eighth major release of Mac OS X; iOS 5, the next version of Apples advanced mobile operating system which powers the iPad, iPhone and iPod touch; and iCloud, Apple’s upcoming cloud services offering.”

We will be covering the event, live, as it happens. We have not received word as to whether Apple will be streaming the event, live, as they have done in the past, but if they do, we will let you know.

BREAKING: Apple Confirms Steve Jobs As Keynote Speaker @ WWDC 2011

Breaking news hitting us just a few moments ago. Apple has sent out a press release confirming that Steve Jobs will, in fact, be giving the opening keynote at WWDC 2011 on June 6th @ 10:00 a.m. Pacific (noon central).

Many people were speculating as to whether he will be better enough to return for a keynote, it will be exciting to see Steve Jobs and his success fighting the 3rd round of cancer. We saw him earlier this year and he looked fine, (better than in 2008 when everyone was hearing whispers about him being horribly ill), so hopefully he can return to Apple as full-time CEO.

Also, I hope all of those bugs are fixed when he does his demos at WWDC because I could see him really nervous at WWDC 2010 with the introduction of iPhone 4. Then again, people yelling “Verizon” wasn’t helping either…

BREAKING: Apple Gets Sued In Federal Court Over Locationgate Scandal

Breaking news hitting us just moments ago, it seems that Apple has just been sued in federal court for alleged privacy invasion and computer fraud by two customers who claim the company is secretly recording and storing the location and movement of iPhone and iPad users.

The lawsuit was filed in Tampa, Florida by 2 people, one in Florida and the other in New York earlier today.

Here is a statement from their attorney:

“We take issue specifically with the notion that Apple is now basically tracking people everywhere they go, If you are a federal marshal you have to have a warrant to do this kind of thing, and Apple is doing it without one.”

We expect more lawsuits to follow, despite Steve Jobs saying that Apple was not sending itself our location data.

BREAKING: Steve Jobs Denies Tracking; Says Google Is Watching You


It seems that Steve Jobs has just responded to a customer email that was asking about specifics on the database that has all of our location information in it. As usual, Mr. Jobs, however brief he speaks, has caused a shockwave accross the Apple community.

Here is the customer’s email:

“Steve,

Could you please explain the necessity of the passive location-tracking tool embedded in my iPhone? It’s kind of unnerving knowing that my exact location is being recorded at all times. Maybe you could shed some light on this for me before I switch to a Droid. They don’t track me.”

Steve Jobs responded with this:

“Oh yes they do. We don’t track anyone. The info circulating around is false.

Sent from my iPhone”

Now, the bad part about Steve Jobs’ emails are that he isn’t very specific about anything. We have proven that iOS 4.x.x is keeping tabs on where you go (even when location services is turned off) as we’ve found the database and even figured out how to corrupt it. However, no one proven that Apple is being sent this info.

Now, not only did he dismiss the locationgate scandal, but he dropped a bombshell saying that Google, is in-fact, tracking you.

Now, many people (such as myself) have believed that Google does keep location data and is constantly being sent this information, but this is the first time Steve Jobs has publicly said anything on the rumor.

We expect Google to release a press release on a rebuttal soon.

Stay tuned as this story develops…

The Latest On Locationgate: Were We Warned 10 Months Ago?!

Good morning, it seems as though Senator Al Franken has taken steps to find us all answers as to why Apple has been secretly been collecting location data from every single iOS 4.x.x device.

Here are some questions he has asked Steve Jobs in the letter he sent him:

1. Why does Apple collect and compile this location data? Why did Apple choose to initiate tracking this data in its iOS 4 operating system?
2. Does Apple collect and compile this location data for laptops?
3. How is this data generated? (GPS, cell tower triangulation, Wi-Fi triangulation, etc.)
4. How frequently is a user’s location recorded? What triggers the creation of a record of someone’s location?
5. How precise is this location data? Can it track the users location to 50 m, 100 m, etc.?
6. Why is this data not encrypted? What steps will Apple take to encrypt the data?
7. Why were Apple consumers never affirmatively informed of the collection and retention of their location data in this manner? Why did Apple not seek affirmative consent before doing so?
8. Does Apple believe that this conduct is permissible under the terms of its privacy policy?
9. To whom, if anyone, including Apple, has this data been disclosed? When and why were these disclosures made?

Now, after thinking back, I remember hearing about this, upon further investigation, I uncovered an old article that I wrote (that we later dismissed as untrue) about a leak from inside of Apple that warned of remote relocking and unauthorized data collection. The leakster, Alpha, was later dismissed as telling false information.

However, the remote carrier update leak did turn out to be true, however the remote relocking did not. Also, he mentioned that Apple was also collecting unauthorized location information from every FaceTime call. According to some of our own internal testing, location data is collected when you make a FaceTime call and stored in consolidation.db (the location data database).
