    BOLLOCKS !!!

    Depends who's asking ! Not everyone needs to ask, due to the Fat Pipes taps

    Ahh, sneaky & misleading ! Not if the've been told not to they Don't.

    Only about the transparent stuff.

    That not everybody follows.

    Which users ? And how often have they & are they doing it ?

    Ahh, only "commitment" how nice !

    I'm VERY surprised @ the EFF, it almost appears as if the've been compromised !

    This with Microsoft known to have cooperated with the NSA, and indications that Google was willingly in on it as well?

    [There were several articles about this linked on OSNews, I can dig them up if need be. As for Apple, I would bet the only reason they'd touch "privacy" with a ten foot pole would involve covering up their own sketchy activities.]

    At a glance, "highly suspect" doesn't begin to cover this IMO.

    Since anyone with a modicum of interest in the subject knows that G,M,A have appalling records in this regard. I am really surprised at EFF. To use Gullible's phrase the whole thing seems sketchy.

    This is really ridiculous... I really don't understand what EFF wanted when they compiled that report... :thumbd:

    The title of the report would seem as even the EFF is like, 'Nothing to see, we are all good, move along folks'.
    The opposite of the (usual) EFF view on NSA, gov. and citizen data.
    But as a minimum baseline it makes sense, especially when constitutional rights are at play.
    The EFF has no 'hard power', it can 'promote' HTTPS for the bigger public but hardly enforce it, they can file court cases and such but can't be expected to fix everything 'NSA'.
    Why wouldn't they use the current indignation (real or not) and leverage of those big companies to raise the bar?
