Re: With apologies to Archer...
It's really interesting to me how, when I attend tech conferences and the subject of Edward Snowden comes up, no matter how neutral the speaker tries to sound, one can always tell exactly how they feel about Snowden one way or the other.

Indeed, I remember reading once -- during the beginning of the Ukraine debacle not too long ago -- that while the Russian people know that the state media lies to them, they at least feel like they can "trust" it more than foreign media (which they have come to believe is even more untrustworthy).

Re: With apologies to Archer...
I'm sure some of the hawks out there, no matter how technically illiterate, still have a grudge against Snowden fed to them by their particular media outlets. These same outlets are the ones pushing the anti-Apple homeland security line. So maybe it's a matter of what your grudge is how long you remember.

Re: With apologies to Archer...
Good point. Today, there're still more people who'd rather trust authorities blindly than try and figure out at least basic points themselves.

Good point, that most people don't remember Snowden anymore. That's what living in Russia will get you --

@Broadway: I think most people outside of tech don't particularly care -- or even remember -- who Edward Snowden is anymore.  That was nearly three years ago.  The Kardashians have done so much since then.

It amazes me that that trust in federal security forces exist. It wasn't long ago that the FBI and the CIA were investigated for spying on Americans. Then you have the Snowden incident more recently!

Re: With apologies to Archer...
I think we still don't trust the political figureheads (Congressional approval has been extremely low for years -- and Presidential approval ratings haven't been very high for the past decade or so), and even local law enforcement agencies have suffered some PR black eyes lately, but there's a great deal of trust in federal law enforcement and federal agencies -- or, if not trust, then disgruntled apathy.

Re: Situation could have been avoided
I believe what vnewman reported, but I still can't believe it. You're telling me that on a company issued and owned iPhone, once I am behind the password firewall, that company can't see what I am doing, where I am going, what apps I am using, etc.?? And they give all that away, so that they can rest assured that any company data is also safe?

Re: Situation could have been avoided
That is extremely interesting. In essence this would create a good standing for Apple from the view point of employees as they will know that their phone data cannot be viewed by the organization for which they work and this might be a huge plus as individuals do not segregate their personal data from professional data on a device and as a result, they desire a high level of privacy.

It also leaves the organization with no powers even after paying for a device.
