Smart Phone's Tracking
Recently To researchers have discovered an undercover application in the iPhone. This application records where the iPhone has been and when it was there by default. No one in Apple is willing to comment on this new discovery leaving many to question why it was installed in the first place. One question that came up to me personally was, "why the secrecy?" By asking this question it brings up the reputation of Apple. By putting the reputation up at stake with the majority of the population this could affect Apple sales in the mobile products. This could possibly decrease there demand creating a domino affect on there company. Creating another economic problem that this country needs less of. If one of the worlds largest companies (Apple) losses business it would affect the business cycle indeffenatly. However the business cycle would only affect Apple and other main computer companies as business would only switch from Apple to them. However the release of this information may not be major enough to put them in trouble but it will be important enough to make a statement to Apple that they can't keep secrets like this from the customers.
