I-Pad has the ability to know everything about you. HOW? You can NOT use ipad without hooking to internet or I-Tunes application. You can not delete your pics or video until you re-connect to your PC. You can not get an application (Program) to read a book or download a game to your ipad (Free or otherwise) without an account with Apple Store. Its almost unusable on its own (It needs ALL your DATA from everywhere) So this is where the SPY possibility STRONGLY exists. To connect to Apple Store (Even for free downloads) (1) YOU HAVE TO GIVE THEM YOUR CREDIT CARD DETAILS. (2) You have to give them your Phone number (3) You Have to give your registered address. (4) Your other bank account details will be connected to your card. (Tax man has the right to snoop everywhere) & maybe others? (5) No incognito (private) form of payment or registry is accepted. (6) Now the scary bit! The ipad has a built in GPS. So it knows where you are at all times. (7) If you use the Map it knows (& remembers) your route plan before you get there! (8) The microphone and cameras I THINK we control? (9) Synchronizing with your computer with "Cloud" allows everything to transfer so easily. (All your computer mail contacts) (10) If you have hooked your phone (or someone's) to your PC the call contacts,SMS messages & history are all there. (11) So maybe you think you will turn it off when you want & you are safe from SPY possibilities. Maybe remove the Battery?????????? No that would make it too easy to stop it from making a periodic time file of GPS. position, voice, & maybe nothing? (12) So Exactly what permission have you given??? (To WHO?) when you hook to internet (sending AUTOMATIC CACHE files to your computer) which happens when you next synchronize. Maybe non of this happens but you have been told what possibilities are. PS. iphones have already been caught out (Discovered) for making hidden files of your position in their memory. (The question is WHY???? & When do they get sent ???) If they are hidden they are not for THE USERS benefit are they??. Use your common sense and put logic into it. Why was it made that way?. John Cool.
