Security and the Government

I just read Tim Cook's open letter to customers of Apple. It's amazing that he had to write it in the first place.

Tim Cook's Customer Letter

It's amazing how quickly our government and some of our citizens forget the principles of how our country was founded. I'm guilty too... I'm not throwing stones. I have great hope for our country to grow and learn from our mistakes. This government we have is like a giant software delivery schedule with feature requests sort out and bugs to track down. All in all, we have to keep shipping and keep refactoring. We get bloated and confusing, but we're still working on it. It's not perfect, but it works better than all the other systems... so we keep going.

Bravo to Tim Cook and Apple.

Come on Google... we are rooting for you!
