In other news, Samsung have responded to claims that Jay Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail app was a privacy nightmare. Essentially people were upset that the app asked permission to access users' storage, system tools, location, network communities, phone calls and much more.

Not great, right? Well Samsung don't seem to think so:

"We are aware of the complaint filed with the FTC and believe it is baseless. Samsung takes customer privacy and the protection of personal information very seriously.

"Any information obtained through the application download process was purely for customer verification purposes, app functionality purposes and for marketing communications, but only if the customer requests to receive those marketing communications.

"Our permissions are in line with other apps' standard permissions. Samsung is in no way inappropriately using or selling any information obtained from users through the download process."

A lot of heat over nothing, or a cleverly worded response?
