A MacRumors reader sent Jobs the following email:

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.

Jobs 'responds' with the following:

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

Sent from my iPhone

What do you think? Is this actually Jobs? If it is, what do you think it means?
