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,

"Do you feel it's fair to say that you are pressured to not commit murder because it's illegal?"

Well, it's not in my own constitution anyways, but generally speaking I think it's absolutely the case. I believe there were a lot more murders in the lawless wild west and probably also places like the roman empire where murder was rampant (at least according to Hollywood, any historians feel free to correct this misconception). People find murder appalling today because that's what we were raised to believe, but these same people are fine with it in war because that's what we were raised to believe and our laws make it ok.


"Do you feel it's fair to say that Apple planned to keep this data until the end of time until this one article so they changed their policy overnight?"

My point apparently hasn't sunken in yet. Apple undoubtedly WOULD keep the data IF they thought they could get away with it without public criticism. Good companies can ANTICIPATE public criticism BEFORE it gets to that point. I still view this as a form of public pressure, and it's good when things happen this way.
