The ever paranoid Dave:
The battle over encryption is very much an us vs. them issue. We citizens of the world want privacy. Governments of the world want access to that privacy. It’s that simple. Apple has ramped up its effort to become the most public of all privacy advocates. You see it on TV commercials and online videos.
Apple loves to differentiate itself from competitors and one way to do that is by adding more privacy and security to every device and then to stand on the public stage and tell everyone how private and secure Apple gadgets are.
Governments around the world do not like what Apple is doing.
