Quote from LA Times:
"Since the iPhone was officially introduced in China seven years ago, Apple has overcome a national security backlash there and has censored apps that wouldn’t pass muster with Chinese authorities. It has moved local user data onto servers operated by the state-owned China Telecom and submits to security audits by Chinese authorities.

The approach contrasts with Apple’s defiant stance against the FBI, which is heaping pressure on the company to decrypt an iPhone that belonged to San Bernardino shooter Syed Rizwan Farook.

This confirms that money talks. It even trumps the privacy standards that Appple applies to the rest of the world.

I hope this is OK under this thread. I debated as to whether it should be "Around the Campfire." If I was wrong, please feel free to move.

This post should be removed. It has nothing to do with the RV Life and is certainly way too political and inflammatory.

I really don't know what it's about, but Chinese is misspelled.

Thank you.

I knew better but guess I had "cheese" on the mind.

I'm glad you are around to correct mistakes. Misspelling has long been a critical problem on these forums. I would also like to see you point out grammatical errors. One of my pet peeves is writers confusing subjective and objective pronouns. Subjective pronouns are most often used improperly after "and, or".

Just keep an eye out and don't let anything get by you.

Always wondered what happened to Jack and Diane. Haven't heard from you since the little ditty by John Cougar Mellencamp.

I grew up in a country where being pro-American, pro-FBI or flying the Stars and Stripes would not be considered political. If this is not the reality any longer, I'm not willing to accept it.

Notice that my last line indicated that I was unsure if this should be Around the Campfire.

If we had a gov with backbone it would do as China did. In order to do business in US you need to ""............... Apple would be happy to.

China is a government controlled country, and has complete say of what their citizens can read, say, do. If Apple or any other company wants to do business in China they have to play by their rules, or take theIr toys and go home. Google and Facebook have to play by China’s rules also.

I support Apple in not creating a “back door” into their products which can be exploited by not so nice people. There has been several instances where police / FBI have gained access to locked down iPhones using third party software and services. Millions of people keep their very private information on iPhones, iPads, iCloud storage. I want it near impossible for anyone other than me to get that data.

This subject has no place here. Even in "Around the Campfire" --- such a topic should be discussed, literally, around the campfire -- in private, not on a public forum. Start the countdown for posting removal.....10, 9, 8, 7, 6........[emoticon]


. . . never confuse education with intelligence
