    I am flabbergasted by the lack of comments !

    Did y'all already know this ?

    What it really means is :
    PKI has a PATENTED !! backdoor !

    Apple should show us the code ..
    And M$ should show us all the code relevant to the _NSAKEY !

    I haven't commented because I already know that I will never use anything from Apple ;) I will also never use anything from Microsoft in any context where security, privacy etc matters.

    So it's not like I knew it already. But there's nothing surprising about it either ;)

    So can Apple now sue NSA? I would really love to watch this play out.

    Unfortunetly some of us have no choice and have to use Apple products.

    True, and Apple is just as likely to sell you out as MS if not more so. (Apple doesn't like it when you don't tightly integrate with them with their big ideas like Pro software flipping up nag screens wanting to phone home, and no more install disks for OS's etc) The Apple fanboi-ism is ridiculous. I have Mac and PC don't feel any allegiance to either. They are a means to an end to get a job done and thats all.

    Yup I have no disillusion about the fact that Apple = MS = Google = Yahoo. So far i have completly eliminated 3/4 out of my life. Feels much better.

    I use what ever gets the job done. Computers are tools, not friends.

    Ha ha see how mortally wounded the Mac followers get when you tell them that. I told a group of Mac people Im not interested in Mac as a religion, but just to get the job done.. Oh the looks :ouch:
