Well no doubt the biggest news story of last week was the revelation of iOS and Google tracking and storing your location data. Windows Phone 7 Does not keep your data over time but it seems that the other mentioned platforms do. A user sent Steve Jobs an email and asked for a response to the tracking rumor. What is said to be a reply from Steve Jobs not only denies that Apple is tracking it’s users but actually accuses Google of doing this. We have already written an article about turning of Google Latitude when you are not using it but we will now have to see what Google’s response is to this mess.

Here is the possible email conversation

Q: Steve,
Could you please explain the necessity of the passive location-tracking tool embedded in my iPhone? It’s kind of unnerving knowing that my exact location is being recorded at all times. Maybe you could shed some light on this for me before I switch to a Droid. They don’t track me.

A: Oh yes they do. We don’t track anyone. The info circulating around is false.

Sent from my iPhone

Hopefully this is an accurate email from Steve and Apple however we will have to wait for confirmation. Anyone that is annoyed by this tracking information come on over to Windows Phone 7.
