if you are a lawyer and you own a palm pre stop using it IMMEDIATELY. If you are a law student working at a legal clinic stop using your palm pre when doing any clinic work.

The Pre periodically uploads detailed information about the user to Palm, including the names of installed apps, application usage (and crashes), as well as GPS coordinates.

PROOF: http://kitenet.net/~joey/blog/entry/Palm_Pre_privacy/

IF YOU ARE MEETING WITH CLIENTS AT LOCATIONS WHICH SHOULD NOT BE DISCLOSED, YOUR LOCATION AND DATA ON YOUR DEVICE ARE VULNERABLE TO DISCLOSURE WITHOUT A SUBPOENA OR ANY COURT ORDERS AND WITHOUT ANY CONTACT WITH THE PHONE COMPANY. THIS IS NOT A JOKE.

Why are you trolling against Palm here? Its vague as to whether Palm actually records this data, and even if they are you can turn off location services.

I would wager that Apple's TOS includes similar language to Palm's.

iPhones do NOT do this. no other phone does.

Crash dumps can contain your CC, SSN and all of your passwords (everything in memory). Besides teh crash dumps it has scheduled logs sent to a palm server specifically set up for that purpose. It uploads your GPS coordinates daily along with the app use data (what you've used and for how long).

Palm maintains it has the right to indefinitely collect, process, store and share this information. there is no vagueness about it.

Good to know, what with all the secret client meetings I have at clandestine locations.
