Same story, so not sure if this should be merged with this post, which covers the latest updates?
Same story, but my impression is that this blog post represents the Dash developers’s response to the Apple response you’re citing.
Adding a recorded phone call into the mix makes this a whole lot more entertaining!
Interestingly, given that Apple did not know and therefore could not consent to the recording, the recording itself is illegal in California. Apparently Bogdan lives in Romania, so I’m not sure how the law would work out between the two jurisdictions.
