    Barely a month ago, Tim Cook, Apple CEO, had the Privacy Policy of Apple posted online, and made a huge production to differentiate the policy from their rivals at GOOGLE, FACEBOOK and many others....APPLE is now declining to help Federal DOJ prosecutors decrypt and code-break an IPhone allegedly used by a meth distributor...convinced that if the DOJ attempts without APPLE assistance, the alleged potential evidence will be compromised or destroyed because of an "auto-erase" safety command that the DOJ claim was sent....

    Personally, I want Apple to continue to NOT just hand over the keys to the code....I value my privacy, INCLUDING AWAY from BIG BROTHER's intrusions. Sorry about your case, but the mousetrap has been improved and is not always your business to know how to defeat it. The encryption is proprietary and privately developed and owned....

    Ed Snowden did American citizens a HUGE service and favor, when he blew the whistle on government snooping of all electronics and social media... The feds are mad because he told the world about this criminal breach of personal privacy. Now, companies are aware of this public anger and mistrust of the feds and any Government attempts to butt into privacy....GO APPLE!

    I was hesitant on staying with Apple when I upgrade my phone this week. Now it's no question...I'm staying with Big A.

    Snowden has also made it a little easier for terrorist groups, including some no doubt plotting attacks against Western countries like the US and UK, to evade government surveillance. Organizations like Islamic State are now using encrypted messaging services for the purpose of recruiting jihadis.

    If, as Snowden claims, he was taking a principled stand, then surely part of a principled stand involves accepting the consequences. Why then is he skulking about in Russia, of all places, a country whose current record on human rights and freedom of expression makes anything the NSA has been up to look positively angelic?
