(why doesn't he ?)......Because he received a gag order from the NSA !
Apple response is not surprising, it's just not targeted to you. This response has been carefully crafted and targeted to the Apple customer who'll believe anything coming from Apple, no question asked. Remember, Apple knows better than you what is good for you, because they know more about you than yourself
.....except maybe after the NSA.
Bell Canada : What are you complaining about ?... we're doing much less than the NSA, and we're doing that for your own good !
I guess that Bell Canada (like many others) now feels entitled to spy on everybody.
...A Computer literate person is a criminal, and possibly a terrorist.
...Constantly babbling with NSA servers !
Because he can. And, more importantly, because you can't.
I'd like to mod up the parent +5 Funny and +5 Insightful !
I would not be surprised if for Microsoft, "Modern Desktop" means "with NSA compliant backdoors". I have been obliged to switch from XP to 7 and frankly I gained nothing in terms of functionalities or ease of access.
The more revelations we get about the extent of NSA spying, the less I believe its purpose is fighting terrorism as it has always be claimed, or even ensure the security of American citizen. This cannot be justified in a democracy, even in a state of war.
By now, they should have realized that stalking me with ads is commercially counter-productive, but despite all my efforts they still continue.
Blessed are the blind, for they will not see ads.
Unfortunately, this is not specific to game programmers at all. I happened to inherit some code a few years back with the same mistake. I replaced thousands of lines of pseudo repetitive code used for accessing the central data structure, by a common routine. This corrected a large number of bugs, decreased the size of the source code and removed a few size limitations which didn't have to exist.You've got crap programmers everywhere and I don't think that all game programmers are crap.
How can I detect that I am infected with FinSpy !
That's the best way to push full encryption for all internet communications, something that all governments want to avoid at all cost.
