I don't know one of these, and was unsure whether to put this in the Tech section or the Serious Business section. Eventually decided to put it here.

So, does anyone here have an iPhone? :P

Here's another article on it:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-13145562

iPhones and iPads are also saving everything you do with it in a single File.

For those with an iPhone, you can see the data mapped out by using this website. I haven't tried it, but looks pretty cool (it's clientside only aswell, apparently).

Or there's this application.
