It’s been a while since we’ve had a Steve Jobs Email on this site, they just don’t seem to happen as often. Today’s one comes from MacRumors, where a reader asked about the iOS tracking issue:
Could you please explain the necessity of the passive location-tracking tool embedded in my iPhone? It’s kind of unnerving knowing that my exact location is being recorded at all times. Maybe you could shed some light on this for me before I switch to a Droid. They don’t track me.
A: Oh yes they do. We don’t track anyone. The info circulating around is false.
Sent from my iPhone
As always, we don’t really know the authenticity of these emails, but this one seems a leeeetle bit fishy. “The info circulating around is false”? What does that mean?
The interesting thing I got from looking at my map was how oddly the location data was placed. It wasn’t down to the street and house number, but rather a map grid. Quite peculiar.
