Mobile Privacy Issues Come to Capitol Hill—Apple’s iOS4 to be Examined in Senate Hearing
by Nancy K. Herther
Apple's April 2010 press releases for iOS4 focused on the operating system's multitasking, threaded email, and "over 100 new features that make it easier to interact with apps, manage email, read books, and more." Apple's iAd, "a breakthrough mobile advertising platform," was also included in the announcements without any detailed descriptions for consumers. A year later, on April 20, 2011, technologists Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden set off a firestorm with their O'Reilly Radar blog post "Got an iPhone or 3G iPad? Apple is recording your moves." The authors noted that Apple's iOS4 operating system for the iPhone and 3G iPad included software that is "regularly recording the position of your device into a hidden file. We're not sure why Apple is gathering this data, but it's clearly intentional, as the database is being restored across backups, and even device migrations."

Book Recommendation Services
by Paula J. Hane
My family and friends have long been valued sources of recommendations for that next good read. We eagerly trade paperbacks, and we don't get bent out of shape if our preferences don't always match someone's recommendations. Amazon's recommendations have proven helpful to me over the years (Customers who bought this also …), and sometimes it highlights items I might not have thought of checking. But with the increased interest in ebooks and the phenomenal sales of e-readers, it's worth knowing about some other very helpful sources for book recommendations. There's a growing number of them popping up, and I was quite surprised to find so many when I started digging. Each has its own special strengths, so you might want to check out several.
