Steve Jobs replies to email regarding location tracking, Apple now facing legal action

One of MacRumors readers has supposedly managed to get an email response from Apple CEO, Steve Jobs regarding the recent location tracking controversy. 

The question:


blockquote>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.

The answer:

Oh yes they do. We don't track anyone. The info circulating around is false. Sent from my iPhone.

As if on queue, Bloomberg is now reporting that two customers from Tampa, Florida have filed a federal complaint against Apple, citing that the company is secretly recording and storing the location and movement of iPhone and iPad users.

What do you think? Is Apple in the wrong or is this another media-manufactured contro
