Apple "All of those questions, messages, and stern commands that people have been whispering to Siri are stored on Apple servers for up to two years, Wired can now report. Yesterday, we raised concerns about some fuzzy disclosures in Siri's privacy policy. After our story ran, Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller called to explain Apple's policy, something privacy advocates have asking for." Apple cares about your privacy.

jared_wilkes,

"No, I think it's nonsense to redefine 'pressured' to 'complying with the laws of the land.'"

The point was that companies, like individuals, change their courses of action when there's public pressure. Without pressure (and "laws of the land" for that matter too), they would be much more devious than they are. I think this is a pretty fair statement, which you probably would not have any problem with it if we were talking about microsoft, google, oracle, or anybody other than apple.
