Correction of the week (so far)

Every now and again, we hacks have to change a detail in a story - a necessary evil because you, our reader, are more important than our pride. But sometimes that clarification ends up highlighting an absurdity.

Every now and again, we hacks have to change a detail in a story - a necessary evil because you, our reader, are more important than our pride. But sometimes that clarification ends up highlighting an absurdity. Like this, which greatly brightened up my day, from our sister publication News.com's story about Apple embedding user information in DRM-free music tracks:

Correction: This story erroneously reported that Apple had in the past encrypted personal information of iTunes customers embedded within music files. The data is available in clear text.

Absolutely splendid.
