I hope you don't mind me asking these questions in this forum. Technically it is about my iPad2, not the first gen one. In any case, I'm sure most of you folks have read the oreilly report about how iphones and ipads are being routinely tracked, and their recorded locations are kept inside the iphone/ipad & on itunes backups via a database called consolidated.db (oreilly report in question is easily google'able, sorry I can't post links as this is my first post) My question(s): 1) Is it a valid assumption that the tracking only occurs on 3g iPads? 2) Does doing an "Erase all content and settings" reset function delete all stored databases on an ipad, including the consolidated.db? I like my ipad and just thought this news was a bit concerning. At the moment it doesn't affect me because I plan to keep my ipad until next year when the iPad 3 comes out. But if the ipad 3 is a significant update, then I plan to resell this ipad2, and it makes me wonder what if that consolidated.db is still in the ipad2 and the subsequent owner gains access to it?
