Getting so sick of the political elite trying to wrestle away rights from people to gain power and using fear mongoring, outlier cases to scare us into believing that we should go along.
Freedom is inherently dangerous, and only the ignorant sheeple of this country actually believe that we can legislate evil away.

TBH there's almost certainly going to be those rare instances where an already illegal activity and being able to access that person's a data may actually save lives and property. Personally it would be nothing I'd have even a second's concern about. I'm also sure that there's that segment who has so little to worry about in their lives that they'll create a mountain of hand-wringing concern over it for lack of anything else.
Most folks really do have far more important issues to deal with, things that personally affect their lives. This isn't one of them.
Just my 2 cents.
Just because politicians have convinced you that you don’t need privacy or individual liberty doesn’t mean the rest of us are going to believe that BS.
I’m fine with this technology, but Apple should do anything and everything to make it null and void to protect its customers.

Justifying your accounts at the end of the month will be a nightmare with hundreds of nickel and dime charges flowing from your phone, watch, and car. Brave New World.

Apple needs to make more political contributions. Not to get 'favors' but just to get treated fairly.
As an Apple shareholder I see no problem with Apple spending a few hundred million on political contributions.

I wonder. All the stuff my family would watch (and my kids) we’ve already seen. So why pay just to watch it again?
I doubt Disney will put all their catalogue up at once. I bet they rotate titles over the year to keep people subscribed. Otherwise, what’s to stop someone from paying for a single month and watching all the stuff they want and then canceling? All Star Wars and Marvel movies for a single $6.99 “rental fee”? Sign me up. But just for one month.
If Apple were to lose this case does that mean Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo will be required to have other means of digital software distribution on their platforms (PS, Xbox, Switch) as well? For all you people thinking this is a monopoly, you might want to actually learn what a monopoly is first.

The only real risk to me is embarrassment, but it's not likely someone I know personally is ever going to hear me saying or doing something I'd wish they hadn't. It's true that I don't want an Amazon contractor hearing my passwords or financial codes, but in the absence of a way for them to determine exactly who I am, even that information is essentially useless to them.
In reality though no one cares what you think about it. People that don’t care about privacy will buy one, and those that do won’t. Pretty simple.
