The US government vs Apple and Google’s: the smartphone encryption discussion

“The US government and police officials are in the midst of a misleading PR offensive to try to scare Americans into believing encrypted cellphones are somehow a bad thing.”— Trevor Timm. Meanwhile, FBI director James Comey picked on Apple, saying the company was allowing its customers to “place themselves beyond the law.”

My 2 cents: this statement wraps it up pretty well. This is one of the reasons I like Apple: their stance on privacy is very straightforward and they don’t try to sell your data in return for free offerings (see some images about this, below). Paying for privacy I guess? Feds only have themselves to blame for Apple and Google’s smartphone encryption efforts | ZDNet
