I can’t even tell what the point of this comment is considering the other two manufacturers are Korean and not US companies.
Both the commenters above probably aren’t aware at how dependent modern day apps and websites are on third party analytics and behavioral analytics software. Think simple ones like google analytics, mixpanel. More advanced ones like fullstory.
for the most part these are not insidious money grubbing moves by pbs and actually are used by product teams to understand things like what features aren’t being used etc.
im hoping Apple isn’t just taking this blanket ban as a PR move and unreasonably taking this weird stance against these innocuous tools.
This kind of speculation as to what the government actually wants is a bit unnerving isn't it? I mean, shouldn't Apple/the FBI/the public know at this point whether it's a "backdoor" exploit they want or just for Apple to crack this one phone? Shouldn't Bill Gates know that, unless Apple is lying, the encryption on these phones is as uncrackable by Apple as it is for the government, so that his interpretation of what the government wants is a bit...un-doable?
