A team of iPhone app developers recently figured out that your iPhone is actually tracking and logging every step that you take.  And when you sync your phone to your computer, that log is transferred.

Now, here are the reasons why you shouldn't freak out about this.

#1.)  There's no evidence that your travel log is being transmitted back to Apple.  And even if it was, I'm not sure that they'd care how often you go to Arby's.

#2.)  This feature is actually one that people ASKED FOR. It's what you use to track down your iPhone when it gets lost or stolen.

#3.)  Because this is about Apple, it's getting a lot of coverage, but at this point, basically every smartphone has some kind of GPS tracking and logging in place.

If you want to see how much of your travel history is being stored on your iPhone, there's a new free app called iPhone Tracker you can use.
