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.

It's not so much the companies that have the information, it's the global intelligence syndicate, using Echelon to track your every transaction, movement, communication and spoken word.

Heck, Google has even admitted to recording sound from your webcam to give targeted marketing. If that isn't "evil", what is?
