I agree! Also, as a condition of their filing this case, I'd like to see those guys be required to sign Agreements such as:
They will have to Report any purchase of iPhone, or any other Smart Phone, or Tablet that has that Tracking Feature Available: The Moment the use those devices without that feature disabled, i.e. with Tracking On, those guys should be required to:
Return the Award, in case the win this Case against Apple, or at least pay Legal Fees for Both Sides in this case, even if they lose this Case, or if they ever change their mind about this feature!

much like someone stealing your car and causing a hit and run caught by a security camera - the video only proves that a car matching the description of your car with your license plate number was involved not who was driving etc.
hasn't anyone seen TV shows or movies where phones - or cars - or guns etc are switched either intentionally or accidentally.
now when we get to the point where phones and such are taking biometric readings at intervals as well then maybe we will have a case where they could be used as prime evidence - until then it is circumstantial - in fact - now that the word is out - I would not be surprised if someone comes up with a way to spoof the file so that it shows you were places you've never been - or time shifts location data so that it shows you were not where you where when you were there.
I agree! In my earlier Comment, #39 http://forums.appleinsider.com/showt...=1#post1854050
I wrote about Tech Experts Testifying. Database Manipulation... There is already too much room for "Grey Area", Reasonable Doubt, for alibi or Innocence!
I don't know enough nuances of this Matter, but I doubt that one can have it both ways! Also, now the Thieves know, before they even still one's Mac or iOS Device that it they are being tracked with Find My Device, and that the Cameras might have already taken their photos! Thus, MAYBE they'll think TWICE before they even consider stealing those Devices!!! And, if in the process a bunch of crack addicts, or other lunatics are taken off the streets, we'll have Apple to similar Tracking Services for that...
But, I am not looking to make Fun of the People who don't like any of this stuff.... Maybe Apple and others can find a way of giving them a choice to turn that feature off? But that still leaves cell phone companies, credit card companies, EZ Passes, ATMs etc. to track all of us... It's hard to be invisible today, and stay off the radar always...
