Each product spec sheet should include a list of all countries that will be spying on you as a result of your purchase. Then you can compare various models and decide who would make you most happy if they were to know everything about you. Customer transparency. Customer choice. Even Apple can get behind that!

Salaries are very local. Sure $87K/yr is low for 5 yrs exp in NYC or SF, but in some parts of the country, that's a decent senior engineer salary, especially if the job has other benefits like 40 hr work weeks, flex scheduling, overtime, pension, health care, etc.
