The iPhone 4s is one of the most popular smart phones on the market. With a personal assistant at the palm of your hand, the phone has people talking. But this week, that talk hasn't been good.
Tech giant IBM has banned the Siri app from its offices because of privacy concerns. When you use Siri, what you say is recorded, sent to a data center in North Carolina, interpreted, and sent back.
IBM is concerned their sensitive information could end up in the wrong hands. Apple won't say how long the information is stored or who has access to it, but according to Apple's license statement, Siri only collects data to do a better job and recognize what users say.
Ladies we spoke with outside the Gateway Apple store said they don't want to take their chances.
"You’re talking to your phone it should be private it should be your own thing, it's not for everyone else it hear. If it was, you would tell everybody," said Diana Urquidi
Shopper Max Kimball on the other hand, is just fine with the recordings.
"Because I don't care what Apple, like if they know what I say," he told ABC 4 News.
Wireless analysts say Max may be on to something. They say our every day use probably isn't very interesting to anyone but us. Tech companies like IBM though, may have cause for concern.
It's good to remember, privacy concerns are not only limited to apple. Google has also come under fire over storing customer data. The good thing with Siri is that you can just turn her off.
