    Thanks for the compliment. I believe they still transmit UDID codes or the iPad has a unique one which let's them know. I'm not exactly sure on that. As far as Imovies goes, it's technically, only available for the ipad2 in the app store. If u try to get it for the iPad1, it wont install or work. This brings us to jailbreak methods. As I do have imovies on my Ipad1. You only can get it by iPad being Jailbroken and getting the app that has the plist modified in it to work with ipad1. Shutting off the cams values n such, since iPad1 doesn't have cams in it. I didn't have to do all that editing as I found a version of imovies that had that stuff already done. If you search/research enough, you will find out where to get it. Can't disclose, as it's against forum rules :-( lol. So yeah, I guess u can say it exists "Also" in the jailbreak world..lmao. But if u have an ipad2, you can just go to the app store and get it. If you have an ipad1 like me, then jailbreak n research and u will easily find out how/where to get it ;-)
    As far as the location services goes, I kinda don't like that tech/feature. Although it's needed for a lot of apps to work. I guess it checks out the region or area you in and adjusts the app accordingly or doesn't work if in a region that app is not supposed to work in. I can see location services needed for weather or map apps but imovies :-/ through jailbreak, there is a way to trick the location service or have it thinking you somewhere else. For ex. Let's say u live in England and get this app from app store. You load it up and it tells you only supported in the U.S., so it won't work. There's a tweak/app, from Cydia I believe, that let's u change your location to trick the app into thinking you are based in the u.s., when u r not, and the app will then work. I never used that tweak but heard about it.
    Yeah, jailbreak does have a negative sound to it and I think that's what scares most people away from doing it. They think it's illegal or something, when it's not. It's perfectly legal to jailbreak your apple iOS device if you please. Does apple like this, NO, so they have a legal trick up their sleeve that is in the form of if they detect your device is Jailbroken, then they can void your warranty. Big deal. All you have to do is restore the iPad, through iTunes, and they will be no evidence or detection that a jail brake was ever done or attempted. Gotcha apple! ;-)

    I have a iPad 1, iPhone 3GS and 4 and iMovie works on both the iPad 2 and iPhone 4.

    IMove stores the locations where you shoot your videos, date time as well a ping point location, it can be traced with google etc,

    I can't think of a reason for this feature other then someone else outside your phone or iPad monitoring this info, it's useless to owners of the devices, I
    Ok maybe the final movie for family shoots,


    I also read that within months apple has to respond to the law suite in regards to this behavior but I doubt anything will take place, Google on the other hand collected the same info in Europe, including passwords of routers and 6 TB of texts holding users emails and where sued millions but also have another month or less to respond or pay the fines for spying, they claimed it was accident yet Google refused to co operate with the preceding, they where asked for their hardware ID, you can google it up actually :)

    I believe imovie uses your location for when shooting home movies you can insert this metatag data into the movie.

    This is the reason I JB:

    Just for basic functionality that should have always been there.

    Damn, Outlaw, u got your iPad tricked out like a Mofo..lmao. Great work. I had that same android nexus live wallpaper. Do u notice faster drain of battery with it on? I ended up getting rid of it thinkn it'll drain battery faster since it's always running. Did u make that vid using imovies or reel director? Great setup on your iPad though ;-)

    There isn't one out yet.

    As far as security, I think I read that Tor is available through Cydia. Tor is very good for anonymity and masking data from your ISP, but not so good at protecting unencrypted data from rogue exit nodes. I know for Android at least, there are OTR messaging clients, PGP encryption apps, and some VoIP apps that supposedly encrypt the call itself and mask the sender's IP by routing it through an offshore server. So it is definitely possible on mobile platforms. I'd imagine there are similar apps for the iPad, although they probably aren't allowed on the App Store.

    It is only a security risk if you install apps that are from illegal repositorys, such as hackulo. The iPad is a thick safe and the only way for security problems to show up is if you install apps that are not used by the general jailbreaking public.

    Thanks....but don't really notice any more drain with the animated wallpaper. Used ReelDirector to make since it allows me to use different fonts and allows you place the text in different areas of the screen. But RD doesn't upload in HD. So once created using RD, I then imported into iMovie where I uploaded to YouTube from there using 720p option.

    Speaking of networks and encryption, have you heard about the services some companies provide like eves dropping, remote desktop with tablets or computers etc etc all un detected and no software needed to do this to any phone?

    I believe their are some authentic legal services that do this and some hacks via Bluetooth with software but the legal ones also require screening as to why parents need to monitor their children or if a licensed investigator needs to.

    I've heard of it but sounds like something that'll raise suspicion. Someone might actually start monitoring you also while u monitoring someone else..lmao
