Unfortunately if you want to get there the driving directions dictate you must traverse the Arctic ocean.

I'm sure the Chinese had no idea it was there otherwise.

Er, huh? This was found on commercial satellite data. Governments have access to their own satellites on top of that. Why the fark is Taiwan bothering Apple?

So much this.  Is the sattelite data Google and Apple use (you know, just two private companies providing directions for us to use in our cars) something all of the friggin' Chinese government can't get their hands on?
 
I'm pretty sure at this point every big government has sattelite imagery of every inch of the world.

Boy, it's sure lucky that there's nothing of concern happening around there right now.

This just in. If it's not 100% underground everyone already knows it's there.

The lizard people in the government already know about everything underground. If it's not hiding in plain sight looking like something else, they already know about it.

China is very happy now.
 
2012-10-11 05:36:09 PM  
So does this mean the Taiwanese can sue Apple for revealing the base? Or did Apple already reverse patent Taiwan?

Uncensored satellite photos can reveal things governments don't want people to see... even if all other national governments know it is there.

Seriously? Did they think the Chinese didn't already have full blueprints and an attack plan for that place?

Apple was just pissed because the military base had rounded corners.

Because iOS 6 is the only place you can find pictures of the radar site.

Taiwan has also told them to blur the images from their spy planes and satellite.

Subby wants to give apple credit for something since its been less than a month and nobody gives a shiat about the iphone 5 already.........

To put this in perspective, I live about 10 minutes from this "secret base". It's completely obvious what it is when you drive by. My g/f took her kindergarten class there as a field trip, and they let them take pictures, as long as they promised not to post them to facebook.

This is not a high-security area.
