 The NSA doesn't use probable cause since they're a national security agency and are not trying to prosecute people in criminal court like the FBI or local police. They use reasonable suspicion, which is a lower standard but is perfectly legal under the Constitution for search/seizure. Reasonable suspicion does not allow the information collected to be used to prosecute someone in criminal court.
Just goes to show that "big government" isn't really that much of hindrance to business. All sorts of U.S. corporations are willing to jump through every hoop the Chinese government holds up in order to gain even limited access to the market.
Gee, isn't that an example of "BIG GOVERNMENT" that should have American business owners fleeing for the exits? Even minor regulatory activity by the feds in the U.S. is treated like it's going to ruin the business climate, yet look at all the American companies flocking to China and calling it crucial to their business success.
Give me a break. Look at the list...how does a company like Visa improve it's image with consumers by 41% in a single year? What kind of innovation did Coca-Cola bring to the table??? 
 It's fairly easy to tell the difference between the PS4 and Xbox One controllers.
My own experience using TouchID is that it has trouble recognizing prints when your skin dries out too. The extra roughness or tiny cracks due to your skin being too dry can throw it off.
Translation: Apple hasn't made enough billion dollar acquisitions to bluff the market into thinking that they've bought their way into a dynamic new field of growth. C'mon, Apple, throw Barclay's analysts a bone and light a few billion on fire for some robots, or thermostats, or social apps.
 Wouldn't be Cook bringing it up because he basically said that Snowden was full of it, but with more tactful wording.
 Edward Snowden already beat you to that comparison, but it's a rather ridiculous one. It's the type of comparison that you might make if you had superficially skimmed through the 1984 Cliff Notes while in junior high.
 Would you agree that hostility exists between the U.S. government and terrorists that threaten U.S. citizens or U.S. government property, both domestically and on foreign soil? And that the possibility exists that those terrorists could have contacts within the boundaries of the United States? Those are exactly the reasons that the NSA uses for surveillance activity that might include domestic data, which means, like the George Washington example, there's ample evidence...
