Steve Jobs may have taken a leave of absence as the Apple CEO, but it seems as though he surely has not stopped answering concerns of his customers.
A Macrumors reader was concerned about his iPhone tracking his location and decided to take matters into his own hands. He demanded an answer from Steve Jobs by sending him an email and saying that he would switch to a Droid if he did not get a good explanation about why his iPhone had been tracking him. Jobs responded back by saying that Android does track its user’s location and that the iPhone does not track its users locations.
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.

Recent research has revealed that Android and Apple both track its user’s information and send it back to Google and Apple. There is no confirmation that this is Steve, although his short responses are typical Steve Job responses. We will keep you updated on the status of the situation
