I was on national radio!


I was just on @LeoLaporte’s The Tech Guy radio show and podcast episode 763 following Dick DeBartolo @TheGizWiz ‘s segment!

I gave plugs to http://ICanHasPixieDust.com, https://disneyecho.wordpress.com and that I’m on twitter as @DisneyEcho — plus talked about the file on iPhone that keeps track of your locations.

I commented that I wasn’t concerned about it keeping track of places I’ve been to. What concerns me is what a waste of space that file becomes after years and years of use — since it keeps getting added on to.

The file started with your very first iPhone and gets transferred to your newer iPhones through iTunes.

I hope Apple fixes this bug and changes it to use a much smaller file that only keeps your recent location, removing all the old location data.

I’m also wondering if this location file is kept on the iPad 3G like it is on the iPhone.

UPDATE: Sat., 4/23 podcast of @LeoLaporte’s The Tech Guy radio show I was on will be on iTunes on Monday, May 2nd — my birthday!

UPDATE: An iOS update made a change to this. Now the data is only kept for a week. Thanks, Apple!

    Sorry I ran out of time before I could mention you, Johhny Briz @JohnnyBrizTweet… I promise when I’m next on a live national show heard in the US/Canada/SERIUS/XM radio plus video podcast, I’ll mention you!

About the Disney Echo

This website is not affiliated with any part of The Walt Disney Company.

The Disney Echo at DisneyEcho.emuck.com is your interactive online magazine to discover new wonders and share magical Disney memories.

The display on this page is set up to show the posts in reverse chronological order of when they were posted originally, so if you want to read the reports from the beginning, go to the last post on the last page and work forward. The first entry about the Koster family's July 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by clicking here and the first entry about their Easter 2008 Disneyland trip can be found by selecting this link.

That link goes to the very first travel-related article on this website: Welcome to our Trip Report.

The entry made after that first one is found after clicking the link named "Our Vacation Plans At-A-Glance" and that link is found above and below the first entry.

The third entry is similarly found after clicking the link above and below the second one, where the link is named "Packing Up"

One can read all the travel-related entries in the order they were posted by going to the next entry and the next entry the same way. Otherwise, this website defaults to displaying the most-recently-posted entries followed by older entries below it on the page as well as on the pages after it.

For more details, see What's a Disney Echo?
