  • iPhone? It's a spyphone: Apple devices can record your every movement you make

    1. Hidden in Apple phones is a function which logs every journey you take
    2. Frequent Locations feature was quietly introduced to iPhones a year ago
    3. iPhones are able to analyse the data and work out where you live
    4. Apple claims the data never leaves your phone without your permission

    Professor Noel Sharkey said Apple’s ability to track people is 'terrifying'

    I was going to buy some Apple Stock, but after learning about this, Apple is doomed to be a penny stock soon. Maybe a short would be a good play on Apple.

    Sorry Santa, I don't want an Apple iPhone for Christmas.

  • Your iPhone is tracking your every move – recording the exact time you left for work, where you bought your coffee and where you like to shop.

    But this isn’t a futuristic spy drone or some sinister Big Brother state – it’s the iPhone sitting in your pocket.

    Hidden in Apple phones is a function which logs every journey. The iPhones are then able to analyze the data to figure out where you live and work, basing decisions on the frequency and timing of trips.

    The function – called the Frequent Locations feature – was quietly introduced to iPhones a year ago. But since access to the programme is buried beneath five layers of settings menus, few people know it exists.

    YIKES !!

    NEW iPHONE UPDATE TRACKS YOUR EVERY MOVE !!

    Apple claims the data never leaves your phone without your permission, and that it was only designed to improve mapping services.

    But Professor Noel Sharkey, one of Britain’s leading computing experts, described Apple’s ability to track people as ‘terrifying’. ‘This is shocking,’ he said. ‘Every place you go, where you shop, where you have a drink – it is all recorded. This is a divorce lawyer’s dream. But what horrifies me is that it is so secret. Why did we not know about this?’

    Smartphones have had the ability to track their owners’ movements since they were first installed with GPS chips and mapping functions.

    But this feature, which is automatically installed on any iPhone with the iOS 7 or an iOS 8 operating system, is the first to display the movements clearly on a map. The phone records the date of every one of your journeys, your time of arrival and departure and how many times you have been to each address.

    FOUND !!!

    The reason Sandy, the Jiimies, and the MMan are in search of a 1977 Good Time Van IS they be wanting to head to Colorado and be BUD specialists...LMAO !!

    "Residents of Colorado say homeless people continue to flock to the Rocky Mountain State in an attempt to find work in the local budding marijuana industry.

    Becoming the first place in the United States to legalize recreational marijuana has already had a significant impact on Colorado by spawning weed tourism companies and attracting visitors wanting to buy pot without risking law enforcement repercussions since the measure went into effect at the start of 2014. Recent reports suggest that homeless people are also among those coming to Colorado, though, and they’re apparently arriving in droves in an effort to land work within one of the United States newest industries.

    “We were averaging 190 (homeless) last year. We’re now averaging 345 a night,” Murray Flagg of the Salvation Army told a Denver CBS News affiliate this week."

    LMAO Sandy, the Jiimies, and the MMan
    KEEP SAVING THOSE QUARTERS FOR THE VAN !!!

    Then you lose your mapping functions all together.

    That's a genius feature for sure.

    Still, to have to find out about this in the news, not from Apple is to say the very least, disappointing. A secret feature that has been in your phone for over a year and nobody was told, is creepy.

    NEW Spying App for the iPhone - TOP SECRET?

    You play golf every Wednesday, you liar. You said you were working...

    Honey, I love this new feature in the Apple iPhone operating system, I can tell where you are and have been everyday of your life.

  • It actually tracks your every move and puts it on a map for everyone to see.

    This is Apple fighting for the rights of its customers?

    This is a company interested in OUR privacy?

    Last week Lynas nearly went bankrupt. But a new plan was announced.

    This week Lynas is diluting shares for a loan to administer the plan.

    For investors, 10,000 shares will only cost $800 today !

    Which means many will double down and buy additional 10,000 share blocks at this reduced price and be able to bail that much quicker when the pps rebounds, and it should as China is the only other choice for Japan to work with for their RE needs, and Japan and China are really getting along well. Not to mention the strains in Taiwan, the Philippines, and many other Asian countries.

    Lynas has a really good chance to break the power of China in the RE market and after everything that happened in Malaysia with SMSL, which I believe came from China, I want to see this happen more than ever.

    I have been patient...I will remain so...my attitude has changed in regards to Lynas as I believe NC cannot get any cylinders to fire in his new company with Lynas on the ropes. Without a real income, NC will have to start selling eye glasses again...something I doubt his legal bills will allow. So, I bought another block and will wait this out as I have.

    Yeah, it's a difficult time for sure, but having an investment away from the US Dollar is attractive. With the debt the US has accumulated, and nearly doubled with the current administration, the US dollar is on a collision course of failure. Getting a long term position in Asia where all of the jobs and product production is, is a compelling reason to not just hold on to Lynas, but to use this opportunity to add to my position.

    A fund that shorts the US dollar would be a good choice too. There is no way under the current debt load of this administration the US Dollar will continue to be strong. Too many wars, too many corporate tax cheats, too many food stamp and welfare recipients that simply sit at home eat chips, watch the big screen, and smoke pot.

    Two ways to cut the food stamp and welfare payments is to demand 20 hours a week of employment, and a drug test. That should disable millions of accounts in one month of time. Then go after the corporate tax cheats with a 20% tax on income for every corporation, no exceptions. It's simple, and easy to calculate, heck one doesn't even need to have an accounting degree to figure out the taxes, you made $10 billion, you owe $2 billion. Simple.

    If your corporation leaves the country, your corporation pays $50% corporate tax that year and all franchised stores or locations in the USA pay $50% in taxes every year from then on. Simple, easy to implement, and smart.
