In this video spliced together by AllThingsD, you’ll see Steve Jobs and Andy Rubin talk about location privacy and their platform’s philosophy on privacy. It’s very interesting to look back on these interviews given what has happened given the iSpy conspiracy.
Here’s what Jobs says:
We take privacy extremely seriously. As an example we worry a lot about locations in phones. We worry that some 14 year old is gonna get stalked or something terrible is going to happen because of our phone…Privacy means people know what they’re signing up for. In plain English. And repeatedly. That’s what it means. I’m an optimist. I believe people are smart, I think some people want to share more data than other people do. Ask them. Ask them every time.
