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,

"It's against YOUR constitution to commit murder, but generally MOST PEOPLE absolutely would commit murder if they weren't 'pressured' by the law not to? Seriously? You're going to argue that? Based on what?"

Please don't stoop this low, I never indicated that most people would commit murder. I think it was tasteless to use murder as an example (my example was taxes), but the point stands even at the extreme of murder. The laws and consequences for it are undoubtedly better at discouraging it than having no laws or consequences at all. If this is wrong, then ask yourself why there are laws on the books against murder?


"Oh... based on MOVIES set 150 or 4000 years ago. Good argument."

It was half joking there, there's no denying humanity can be brutal when there are no rules.


"Your point is understood by me and it's wrong. We don't write articles about the entire population everyday saying, 'John Doe Finally Pressured into Not Killing.' It's absurdity to claim that Apple was pressured or finally acted in response to a single article..."


You are obviously not getting it. Your too stubborn in your quest to defend apple at all costs that you don't realize that this criticism is waged at all corporations. Corporations don't care except to the extent that it would hurt sales, apple is not an exception. This is what Laurence, Soulbender, and I have been saying from the get go. If you truly did get it, then you'd have to admit that your argument is a straw man because I certainly never said apple's actions are a response to a single article. This article is not relevant to my views at all.
