Glad they're voicing interest, having some tech experts weighing in can only help.

Nothing is illegal for the NSA.  It has total power over everything on the world.  I guess strong encryption is the only counter measure.

Funny you say that because I work in the field if you think gathering will stop progressing or won't become increasingly aggressive, pinch yourself.

Apple increments product features one bite at a time...hence the logo. Want the next big thing? You're gonna have to pick another fruit from the Apple Tree.

My comment was unrelated to whether aggressive data gathering will continue to whatever extent they can - I'm sure it will. It was about whether they are in a position to bend the lawmaking process to their will.

I wonder how committed Apple really is to the statement on ReformGovernmentSurveillance.com. While they have signed the open letter, Apple is not among the companies with their name or logo on the masthead of that web page. Is Apple signaling that it disagrees with one or more of the principles laid out on the web page, but not detailed in the letter? I hope AI will ask Apple for an explanation.
