    Variations of this are about Osama using Playstation Network, Foursquare, Facebook, etc. Kind of overdone but it’s good to make light of serious events sometimes.

    Now, if I never hear about Bin Laden or iPhone tracking ever again I certainly won’t complain.

    If they knew the location of the secret mansion in order to drop off the iPhone, why did they need the location data?

      They didn’t. They dropped off thousands of iPhones all over the country. It was only when Osama used Facetime that they were able to use face recognition algorithms to identify him, and subsequently launch the mission.

    A “bug”?
    I like how it can have two meanings, but of course they’re gonna go with the blameless version.
