For this episode of the Macworld Podcast, we'll be discussing Epic Games' removal of the Infinity Blade series from the App Store and what it says about app maintenance and game preservation. We'll also be discussing The New York Times' report on how apps constantly track your location data, even when using an otherwise secure device like an iPhone. We'll then close by discussing the best Apple products to give as holiday gifts.

We also respond to your comments and questions for Jason Cross, Leif Johnson, and Dan Masaoka in the Macworld Podcast, episode 633.
