"We Don't Track Anyone, But Google Do" said Steve Jobs [About Tracking Issue]

Almost a Week ago, The news Broke out that Apple is Tracking the Movements of iOS users. Which was discovered by Two Researchers Alasdair Allan and Pete Warden. They both found a file in the iPhone's Backup, that file which they found was said to be containing Location Data and time. So it was believed that the Data in the File helps saves the time, In a sense that as a Network look for an GPS Data or Cellular towers, this file will help caching the data and saves the time.
Now it's been reported by MacRumors, that one of the MacRumor Reader emailed Steve Jobs about this Issue, Here's the Question which he asked and Steve Jobs Replied:

Q: 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.

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

Sent from my iPhone
So it's been clear from his answer that he claims Google to be Tracking data of Android users it's not us. And it's believed that the Data stored in Android is limited to a much smaller list of entries and is regularly wiped by the system.

It's still not Official from Apple, So we have to wait for Apple to respond about this Officially and get the Answers clearly.
