Bad Apple

Shortly after the announcement that Apple point-blank refuse to support Adobe Flash for the iPhone they are now forcing you to share location information. The penalty if you don’t means you can’t download new apps from their iTunes store.

This latest control idea comes hand in hand with the launch of the new iPhone V4, its supporting operating system and the company’s new advertising platform.

Users can opt out if they don’t want to be served targeted ads after jumping through a few hoops, but it’s a black and white option if you don’t share your location information with the company, if you decide against letting the world know where you at every given moment you also won’t have access to new apps from the iTunes store.
