Apple and security

This week Apple published a brutal critique of demands from the FBI to create security holes and back doors in iOS.  

Apple makes few public comments that aren't directly related to selling their products. "Thoughts on Music" and "Thoughts on Flash" spring to mind. 

Over the past few years, security has been a big selling point for the iPhone and iOS devices generally. Apple is really putting their position out there.

They are asking: want do you hate more? Terrorists or snooping governments? But they are also saying they are big enough to stand up to the U.S. Government. Seems like a risky move.

Watch this space.
