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.

My reading of Apple centric sites is that the white iPhone is an iPhone that is white. Got any citations on the folks who think it is more than that? I also think a device that Steve Jobs shows on stage and says will be released soon, then takes over a year is notable for Apple followers.

A "very nasty bug"? It cached your location +/- 100 miles. Getting that information requires logging into your computer account or getting possession of your phone.
