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.

Don't worry Europe will fix this

I'm sure there will be unending speculation and justification as time goes on but I'm rather hopeful that Europe will actually investigate and hold Apple accountable for any violations of their privacy protection acts. They actually have some decent consumer privacy laws and *gasp* seem to actually enforce them. It's rather clear that the U.S. law is up to the highest bidder so I expect little to come from there. The exception being a steady stream of private and likely class action suits as lawyers try to capitalize on the situation.
