Apple's location-gate scandal reaches South Park

Apple's location-gate scandal reaches South Park

Apple's location-gate data scandalmight have been slightly overblown by the media, but wait until yousee what happens in the peaceful town of South Park, Colorado.Fourth-grader Kyle Broflovski felt safe hanging out with hisbrand-new iPad until Apple representatives tracked him. Just becausehe failed to read the ever changing terms and conditions. Somewhere in the episode, one of the characters says: "when the police want to knowwhere somebody is, they ask Apple." Funny because after the location tracking "bug" was found, it was unveiled that the police had actually been using the logs for months.

Whathappens next in the episode is a disturbing (and disgusting) story of dramatic twists and a survival ending witha revolutionary new half-human half-computerized product. All possible by agreeing to a number ofsimple terms including being tracked at all times. We won't spoil thefun of realizing what the Human CentiPad is, but it's not pretty.While Apple were just quick enough to post an official reply to the allegations stating that they'll fix the bug soon, it's a goodreminder of just how vulnerable personal data could be. Check out the link below for the full episode, but before that ask yourself - did youagree to Apple's Terms and Conditions without reading them too?

YAY! I love these guys - always pointing out the truth about people and the idiots int he world. Why we don't see it and SP has to point out the obvious is beyond me. I love the Brit Spears one and the Paris Hilton one - priceless. God bless them and F apple.

Too funny. I am almost always amazed at how quick they can come out with new episodes that involve events that just happened. Next weeks will probably include something about the "Royal Wedding". I remember back when Obama became president, there was a South Park episode that was all about Obama becoming president and how it was going to be the end of the world.

And the fact that Obama and McCain only ran for the presidency as a clever ruse to break into the Smithsonian. Which really happened...

actually the episode you refered to wasnt about obama becoming president ending the world at all.... it was a obama and mccain parody on oceans eleven. the end of the episode obama decides to lead the country with an optomistic progressive outlook. it also made fun of how people expected change to happen over night and how these things take time under the right leadership. as for the IhumancentiPad.... awesome. great episode! love the part when the guy kisses his son....twice!!!! hahahahaha
