Which is my stance from the beginning but if Im getting into hysterics over my privacy and some potential hacker getting into my secured system Im apparently an fanboy apologist.
Now Im curious about the data usage per month. The file on my iPhone is 8.3MB. Thats pretty damn big and I doubt that is sent anonymously to Apple 2x a day, every day. If it was it would be 500MB a month.
If its 50KB per package then were only talking about 3MB per month and shipped quickly without any noticeable effect on the data. Love for someone to figure the average amount of data that is sent to Apple.
Is 3MB per month too much to waste for those with 250MB limits that are only on 3G. I wonder why Apple didnt opt for a less carrier heavy way to send the data, like when youre connected to WiFi and its been over 12 hours.
And why every 12 hours if they have timestamps? This makes me think the data is much, much simpler and therefore smaller than consolidated.db for Apple to being 12 hour bursts.
Note: Im only curious
since I have unlimited data.
