That $365,000,000 was rather a waste of money. I thought Apple would do something clever with the technology; such as the user having to tap in a pattern of four (or so) different prints in a sequence of their choosing which would result in a far more complex (and secure) lock.   P.s. If they didn't patent this idea I'm releasing it for free.

This may not be illegal but it is unethical. The UK has a welfare system and a fantastic National Health Service (all medical care free at source). As a British national I would prefer Apple to respect our welfare system and the cost of running it. You may not have such luxuries in the USA but the majority of our country is proud of our ability to help everyone regardless of wealth or income.

There is a world of difference between surveillance and criminal proceedings. It may be that warrants are requested where a crime is obviously being or is in the process of being investigated/committed and data that is being surveilled in case of a criminal or subversive suspicion.   And the concluding sentence of the article you pointed to was:   "The reality is that if NSA surveillance is indeed overstepping its bounds, those companies are victims, not willing...
I have read of no retracted account of data harvesting. It is direct from the servers (whether or not the complicit companies knew or otherwise). Snowden has not redefined his original meaning of entire data capture from source.
