    If your 3G service is on they can pretty much track your location. Using MobileMe or possibly another program they may have installed. If your not gonna be "off duty" for too long you can just turn off the 3G and if your work says anything you could use the excuse that the service was out of service for a bit.

    Sure can. With 3G turned on, MobileMe can pinpont your location down to the foot. They can also turn the cameras on using MobileMe and see what you're doing. It's a feature they added with the iPad2 to help catch thieves.

    GPS is not the only thing that can be used to track a person. Using the cell phone towers they can pin point your location. That is how location based services work.

    Don't know if they have installed an app to transfer location information to your company. You can however turn off 3G when you are going off the normal trail of work.

    Big Brother is always watching these days.
    Meaning you must become an honest worker. Can't cheat the system.
    The system will com and hunt you back.
    If you are honest and visit the costumes you were assigned to meet,
    you should not care a bit, about iPad reporting your moves.

    If I take my ipad into an apple store, can someone there look at my ipad and tell me if my company has installed software to track my whereabouts?
