A story was released in the major media outlets this morning about how personal information is being downloaded with the songs that one purchases on iTunes. Now, I am not sure that the information included is that sensitive, but that’s not what I find interesting about the event.
Apple, as a company, has a “no blogging” policy. Consequently, they will have to rely on the traditional methods to respond to the story. What I am interested in is just how long this will take? You know, with all the approvals and checkpoints in the traditional method, it might take a day or two.
Too bad they don’t have established blog channels where they could respond immediately and get their side in the media more quickly to diffuse the story.
