In response to the hubbub surrounding the iPhone’s unwanted tendency to transcribe your every move and remember it for years, Apple today issued a curious statement–mostly a blanket denial of wrongdoing, though that’s undermined a bit by Apple’s promising to issue a software update that’ll solve the issue. Apple claims the data logging is a crowdsourcing effort to improve location services, and that both the excessively long memory for location data and the problem of logging even when location services are turned off are bugs that will be fixed. All in all, a totally Apple response: Sometimes wrong, but never uncertain.
