It gets creepier: http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2012/04/shady-companies-nsa/all/
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.
This is simply misinformation. Snowden talks of two levels of intercept: "Incidental" and "Warranted". In the first instance it would appear the NSA can and does simply harvest all telecoms/internet data from Apple, etc., servers and store it for their own use (or supply that data to GCHQ if requested). Warranted data retrieval is merely that obtained by a compliant Judge rubber-stamping a formatted request.
Edward Snowden is currently holding a Live on-line interview with readers of The Guardian @ http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/17/edward-snowden-nsa-files-whistleblower?commentpage=1   11.00Hrs ET 16.00Hrs GMT for around 1.5Hrs
I don't believe these figures at all. Everyone is claiming the same number of requests for data. Yet Snowden states that NSA has direct access to data servers.
You are the police of who? This site is called Apple Insider and some Apple devotees (of many years standing) would like to know more about Apple's involvement, complicit or otherwise, with the NSA & GCHQ. I think most other tech news is almost irrelevant with this shadow hanging over the whole industry.
Nothing on PRISM today, guy's? Come on!
Mac Pro's are the only Mac's I buy now as they are hardware configurable. If they drop the Pro I will reluctantly drop OSX (still my favourite OS). I want some control over my machines. Apple can't have it all.
The new Mini Player is revolting.
