Google and Apple Scramble to Explain Location Tracking

Posted: May 11th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Google and Apple Scramble to Explain Location Tracking

Executives from Apple and Google have told lawmakers that users have control over information used to pinpoint the location of iPhones and smartphones running Google’s Android software. Tuesday’s hearing by the Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Privacy, Technology and the Law follows Apple’s recent admission that its popular iPhone stores data used to help the device locate itself for up to a year. Apple also said that a software bug has caused iPhones to continue to send anonymous location data to the company’s servers even when location services on the device were turned off. Faced with an uproar among privacy watchdogs and lawmakers after two researchers revealed the iPhone location tracking practices, Apple has said it will no longer store the data on phones for more than seven days, will encrypt the data and will stop backing up the files to user computers. It also has fixed the bug with a free software update. M★C READ MORE

Newscorp via Apple?

Posted: January 12th, 2011 | Author: | Filed under: mcsixtyfive | Tags: , , , , , , , | Comments Off on Newscorp via Apple?
Steve Jobs will join Rupert Murdoch on stage at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art to reveal iPad newspaper The Daily, TheCutline reports citing a source familiar with the matter.
The date for the event is said to be January 19, but it may change. Neither Apple nor News Corp. have confirmed that the event is happening on that date. The Daily is specific, especially for Murdoch’s media powerhouse News Corp., as it will have no web or print edition – the only way to get it will be on the iPad, where each edition will cost $0.99. Furthermore, Apple is said to have taken great care to deliver a seamless delivery experience for The Daily, and the News Corp. has reportedly hired 100 journalists for the new publication, which shows that both companies are serious about the project. Even with such a strong backing, The Daily will have a tough task ahead of it: to prove that the iPad (and tablet devices in general) are the real game changers for journalism.
