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.

When, FINALLY, is Apple going to pass full ownership rights on to the purchasers of their bought and paid for products? Instead of acting the controlling FASCIST, NAZI, JACKBOOTED, thugs that their actions over the years have proven they most certainly are.

Note: FASCIST, NAZI and JACKBOOT are all used in various venues within this same mechanism.


That's a really, really bonkers thing to say.

What cannot you do with your Apple device that you want to do but are prevented from doing by Apple?

Why does preventing you from doing these things amount to behaviour so heinous that it compares to one of the most brutal and murderous movements in history?

It makes no sense to me.

As to the mocking of the use of the word 'finally', it is an attack on cheap and lazy journalism. It's use in headlines is often an attempt to inject some drama and controversy in to what would be otherwise a fairly bland non-story. It's low quality journalism designed to attract attention and clicks. It should be attacked and mocked.

The use of 'finally' is becoming as prevalent, and is as bad, as the gratuitous use of question marks in headlines, another awful journalistic practice.

The problem with Apple phobics like yourself (and the use of the word phobic is appropriate I think for someone who actually thinks a software management system is somehow equivalent to the perpetrators of the Holocaust) is that you don't care about journalistic standards as long as the bad journalism is attacking Apple. Shame on you.
