The Latest From Apple: iSnoop?
Apple has been riding a wave of good publicity recently, stretching from the release of the much-anticipated iPhone through to last month's debut of Leopard, the latest installment of Mac OS X. But the happy times may be headed for a dip after questions arose about whether Apple is using it's technology to spy on users.
Users of Hackintosh — a popular site for Apple aficianados — discovered recently that several applications included in Apple products are reporting user data back to servers. According to Hackintosh, the applications involved include ones intended to track weather and stock information, as well as ones as seemingly innocent as Leopard's calculator.
Just what Apple may be doing with the information — and what great secrets they plan to uncover from user's math homework — remains a secret, as the computer giant has yet to comment on the discovery.
