A few apps I've Installed in Android have told me it will be collecting location data. Free apps are generally add supported or paid for by selling customer data. Maybe not personal information, but even location and usage statistics can be sold for profit.

The fact that apple collects it all and keeps multiple copies is a little shady, but other than that, they're certainly not unique here.

At least those apps ask you first. 
I understand the I'm not going anyplace bad argument. But it's not about that it's about privacy and about the company that made your phone, not even the phone company, tracking you.
IDK maybe it's because I don't have any Apple products but it just doesn't seem right.  If the gov't had planted something in our phones to track where we were every civil rights group would be on the war path.  But Apple does it and nobody really cares.  It's strange

True.  Apparently google/droid phones do the same thing:

Here's another new twist from todays paper.  Apparently the police now have a device that can read everything on your phone in a matter of minutes:

I will admit a bit of a wonder at why there's general shock at all this personal data being made available when people freely post in foursquare, facebook, twitter, etc.

Anyway, here's a good reason to keep that data in your phones - if your gear gets stolen and someone uses it to take pictures, you can use the same EXIF data to determine where that photo was taken (if it's saved online).

Original creator intended it to be used for camera gear, but it should work for any photo taken where location data is stored.
