Apple Apple has responded to the location data thing, and as it turns out, most of us moderate folk were completely right. Apple claims the data isn't sent to Apple, and that the storing of the information is a bug Apple will fix in the coming weeks. Still a very nasty and potentially dangerous bug, but not the massive privacy issue many made it out to be. Also, a new colour iPhone is out, which, if you were to believe the gadget and Apple sites, is yet another Apple revolution.

Have they explained WHY do they do it?

That's what makes people paranoid. There are ZERO reasons to keep such a database anywhere. You need my location for some app to work? Fine. What do you need my whole location history for again?
