Apple, of course, has learned the hard way that it needs to be strict about how iOS apps use, share, and distribute users' private data. And in the most recent version of its App Store guidelines, Apple writes specifically under the subheading of privacy that "Apps cannot transmit data about a user without obtaining the user's prior permission and providing the user with access to information about how and where the data will be used.". One question then is how Path's address book uploading functionality made it past Apple's famously strict vetting process. Apple did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Update (Tuesday, 4:44 p.m, PT): This story now includes confirmation of Path CEO Dave Morin's response to Thampi's blog post, The popular photo sharing app is rocked by news that it uploads contacts from iPhone users without permission, The popular photo sharing service Path is deep in the weeds today after a blogger revealed that the company's app automatically uploads iPhone users' entire address books to its servers, In a blog post, a developer named Arun Thampi said that he discovered that his "entire address book (including full names, emails, and phone numbers) was being sent..to Path." yellow dots iphone case And while he also wrote that he wasn't accusing Path of doing anything "nefarious," he noted that the service had never asked for his permission to upload something as sensitive as his contacts..
CNET también está disponible en español. Don't show this again. For more than a year, LightSquared has been embroiled in a political and regulatory battle with the GPS industry and U.S. military, which claim that the company's network will interfere with existing GPS devices. They've lobbied the FCC and Congress to make sure that LightSquared's network does not get built until interference issues are resolved. LightSquared obtained the spectrum it plans to use for its network through a series of acquisitions. The spectrum it intends to use for its network was originally meant for satellite communications, but the FCC cleared it for terrestrial use in 2005. And last year, the FCC granted the company a waiver so that LightSquared could operate a terrestrial-only network.
LightSquared has acknowledged some interference problems, and it's tried to mitigate the issues, Last year it agreed to only use a portion of its wireless spectrum which is the furthest from the GPS bands, And it showed that filtering technology added to existing and new receivers would mitigate most problems, But in a recent test conducted by the government, there were still significant interference yellow dots iphone case issues, LightSquared said the tests were fixed and it would like the testing redone, Meanwhile, the FCC has said it won't grant LightSquared final approval to build its network until the interference issues have been resolved..
Even though FCC regulations don't specifically say that companies are protected from signals outside their own spectrum bands, it's unlikely that the FCC would approve LightSquared's network given that the network could interfere with millions of critical GPS devices. But LightSquared is fighting back in its latest filing. And it says that the companies and the government agencies that have deployed and continue to deploy GPS receivers that "listen" to signals in adjacent bands need to be held accountable and not LightSquared.
