Apple Bucks the FBI and you should be grateful

Apple_logo_blackApple isn’t backing down from the FBI and you should be grateful.

Grateful isn’t the word exactly, but if you’re one of the many people like myself who values their privacy you should take a moment to read Apple CEO’s Tim Cook letter to customers regarding their privacy in the digital world.

Here’s an excerpt:

The United States government has demanded that Apple take an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers. We oppose this order, which has implications far beyond the legal case at hand.

This moment calls for public discussion, and we want our customers and people around the country to understand what is at stake.

YMC will do a more through post regarding Apple, encryption, the NSA and our rights to privacy, but for now. I must feed the dog.

Bravo Tim Cook.
