South Park: Apple’s Tracking Me, Dude!

Apple may be trying to change the spin on its controversial location tracking, err…harvesting feature. The company issued a FAQ this week and pulled CEO Steve Jobs off of medical leave to argue the company’s case and quell concerns about the little known feature that include calls for an explanation from Capitol Hill lawmakers. 

Apple may be trying to change the spin on its controversial location tracking, err…harvesting feature. The company issued a FAQ this week and pulled CEO Steve Jobs off of medical leave to argue the company’s case and quell concerns about the little known feature that include calls for an explanation from Capitol Hill lawmakers. 

Apple’s story -that it failed to adequately explain its practices adequately and overlooked a bug on its phones that retained too much location data from customers – may be enough. But the verdict’s already in at South Park, which took on the controversial tracking in this week’s episode, in which Kyle is pursued by a crew of “business casual g-men” from Apple who have an uncanny knack for knowing where Kyle is, and who are aready to cart him away for some ominous sounding experiments. Kyle, it appears, failed to read the full user agreement when he downloaded the latest version of iTunes. Hillarious.
