The fact is that encryption exists and it is not going anywhere. Even if Google and everyone else did roll back to previous encryption methods, the criminals would eventually just use alternative encryption solutions. Admittedly, it would probably take a while before it became a common staple of criminal activity but it would happen. As far as the dumb criminals go, I doubt that you need to rollback encryption to catch them. The likely did something else stupid that would get them catch.

You do realize that cell phones didn't always exist, and people still managed to survive?

What is your point? A lot of things didn't used to exist and yet enough people to survived their non-existence to continue to life of the species. That doesn't mean it is smart to get rid of all those things.

I have the money now. I just can't justify spending that much on this kind of device so I can play a limited set of games. Especially since, I don't even know what the experience will be like. Maybe if I could demo it somewhere but I can't. Also, I don't have as much time to play video games as I used to...
