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.

I had no idea about the "finally". I'm pretty sure it refers to Siri being out for god knows how long and Apple never having disclosed this information. If you read the article, you'd know Wired wasn't the one who originally raised the concern - the American Civil Liberties Union was.

Don't jump to conclusions to feed your own preconceived notions of needing to protect poor, misunderstood, beleaguered Apple.



When you are in a hole stop digging.

When someone makes a well deserved but gentle joke, possibly at your expense, join in the laughter.

Pompous bluster is the worst possible response.

Riiiiight, because it's not as if you have along history of trying to dismiss all criticism of Apple by resorting to lazy rhetoric, weaselly passive-aggression, and talking points copy-pasted from Gruber.

That's pretty funny, coming from a person who has repeatedly used the phrase "Apple-phobe/Apple-phobia" in a pathetically transparent attempt to equate criticism of Apple with homophoia (see also: the fallacy of guilt by association).
