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.

MOS6510,

"I agree that laws and rules prevent unwanted actions and events. But what I argue is that 'pressure' is something that is actively applied and doesn't need to have a basis in law."

Really? When we talked about "peer pressure", I think it's usually passive rather than active. Kids didn't start drugs because they were actively pressured into doing it, it seems like more of a passive sort of thing. But if you want to use a different word for it, it's fine by me.

"I don't think companies would do really nasty things or they would lose their customers. It gets bad when they band together and you're left with no choice."

Agree, this is what I was trying to get at with Jared. Even if we don't want to call it pressure, the public reaction is something that prevents them from behaving too badly in the first place.
