Encryption by itself solves nothing. If it did, everything on the Internet would be secure because every character on the Internet is encoded in ASCII, which is a code with a key. What matters is the algorithm, key production, and key management. A VPN may use a good algorithm, but the session keys are held by the VPN provider, in addition to yourself, which could completely negate the security of both the algorithm and the key.
Every day I use over a dozen Hue bulbs in my home, and perhaps the frequencies they use are too crowded from my neighbours' own devices, (so your results may be better) but during the course of the day there are always random bulbs with "No Response." As I write this I have three Hue bulbs saying "No response." I've switched zigbee frequencies, with different results, but never get very good results. I'm done with Hue (I think the real problem is zigbee) due to many daily failures to work properly. I'll wait for bulbs that use Thread.
By the way, despite what the manufacturer claims, the bulbs are all dimmer than incandescent bulbs, and it takes extra bulbs to get the same amount of light. So unless you have the vision of an owl, get the brightest bulbs you can get, since they are all supposed to be energy efficient anyway. And don't bother with colour bulbs, which cost way too much extra and are rarely useful.
AppleInsider said:In an interview with Reuters, Vestager agreed with Cook that privacy and security are important factors for consumers, but warned the Cupertino tech giant against using concerns about them to fend off competition.

The "Apple lawyers" alluded to in this story are actually lawyers from China who are subcontracted by Apple (which this story didn't report.) I presume these lawyers are trying to help Apple by using local laws to punish the leakers (who appear to be unaffiliated with Apple or its subcontractors.) However these lawyers do not appear to be holding to American standards of law or human rights. I guess they don't have to, since they live in a dictatorship, not in the US. But Apple in the USA should have told them that they need to respect all human rights as defined both in local law and also in the US constitution.
Personally, if I was Tim Cook, I would fire those lawyers (that is, if they were previously instructed to respect US laws.) However Cook seems very friendly to that dictatorship and I can't see him doing that.
Neither this article nor the ZDnet article asked whether this "mistake" could have been created ON PURPOSE. I suppose ZDnet and AI would never consider the idea that crypto code coming from a country that has nukes aimed at us would ever do anything intentional to harm us. I wonder how many other "mistakes" there could be in that product.
