It was only a matter of time before it happened and here it is — two Apple users have filed a lawsuit against the company for tracking user location.
[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]According to Bloomberg, one of the people uses an iPhone and lives in Florida, and the other uses an iPad and lives in New York.
“We take issue specifically with the notion that Apple is now basically tracking people everywhere they go,” Aaron Mayer, an attorney for the plaintiffs, said today in a telephone interview with Bloomberg. “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.”
Of course, the lawsuit stems from a report last week that found the iPhone and iPad contains a file that tracks user’s location. Since then another researcher offered an explanation for the file and another story found Android also tracks a user’s location.
