I don't think the IBM and Apple working relationship has gone so far as IBM helping Apple improve SIRI. Perhaps someday if IBM and Apple can trust each other enough. Apple has had a trust issue with supposed partners in recent years and I imagine IBM is a bit wary of Apple too.
With Apple pretty darn good at keeping their dirty laundry out of the public eye it's entirely possible someone currently at Apple threw him under the bus. (The reporter smartly refers to one source as a former senior manager) If someone in management unwisely chose him as their sacrificial lamb it's Apple managers you should be concerned with, not Bloomberg.
OOPS.. Sorry. Quadcore GPU. Anyway, Ars has an interesting article on Samsung. did you know they have more employees than Apple, Google and Microsoft . . COMBINED?http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2014/09/samsung-has-more-employees-than-google-apple-and-microsoft-combined/
So it turns out there's a connection between the flawed 8.0.1 update and last years maps fiasco. They had the same QC manager at the helm. http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2014-09-25/apple-s-iphone-software-snafu-has-links-to-flawed-maps.html
They can't offer what they don't have. And they don't have the keys.
Anything stored in the Cloud is still fair game. That might include files, photos, app data, SMS and iMessages, etc. For those really concerned about government authorities having access to personal information and communications originating on your iDevice don't use Apple's or anyone else's Cloud storage.
I would guess they already host it all on Chinese-owned servers. A story a couple weeks back reported iCloud in China goes to China Telecom servers. While Apple says CT doesn't have access to the encryption keys I don't recall a statement that the Chinese government itself does not, tho perhaps they said so in a statement somewhere. No one outside of Chinese and Apple officials would even have known about the changes in iCloud storage there if not for an inadvertent...

Yes they have. They did so some years ago as a matter of fact. What you are probably thinking of is the upcoming Android L when encryption becomes "default on" out-of-the-box rather than requiring users to enable it manually. But the option to encrypt your Android data has been there quite awhile, since version 2.3 something (Gingerbread). Just like with the new iOS feature the keys are stored on your device, inaccessible by Google, and only you can decrypt it...as long...
I'd guess he did not. Muppetry's comments are normally pretty informative.
