But it’s weird, fascinating, and just a little bit scary to realise that your phone contains a perfect record of where you’ve been in the last month or so. That includes the exact time you arrived at and left anywhere: your office, a bar, that person’s house.

The software works out where you spend most of the daytime and designates that as your work address. It then does the same for your home address.

Find My iPhone was one of the best things Apple showed off on Monday at WWDC—track your phone, send harassing messages, etc. It works, but whoever pinched your iPhone can just turn off tracking right from the phone.

So, if you wanna steal your friend's iPhone and not have them know where you absconded to, all you have to do it go into Settings, then hit Mail, Contact, Calendars and click on the MobileMe account. Turn off Find My iPhone and all your friend will get is a little yellow warning symbol when they try to track it if the phone's been previously located (see above).

Even if they're not smart enough to dig into the MobileMe account setting, all you have to do is turn off Location Services under General settings—that also cripples Find My iPhone long enough to get it back home to wipe it out completely so it's untraceable.
