    I read that Apple and Google have begun encrypting the data of customers so that nobody, including Apple and Google, have plaintext access to it. This of course means “so that the government will not have access to it.” The FBI is terribly upset about this, the first serious resistance against onrushing Orwellianism. God bless Apple and Google. But will they be able to stand up to the feds?

    Here is a curious situation indeed. The government has become our enemy, out of control, and we have to depend on computer companies for any safety we may have.

    NSA spies on us illegally and in detail, recording telephone conversations, reading email, recording our financial transactions, on and on. TSA makes air travel a nightmare, forcing us to hop about barefoot and confiscating toothpaste. The police kick in our doors at night on no-knock raids and shoot our dogs. In bus stations we are subject to search without probable cause. The feds track us through our cell phones. Laws make it a crime to photograph the police, an out-and-out totalitarian step: Cockroaches do not like light. The feds give police forces across the country weaponry normal to militaries. Whatever the intention, it is the hardware of control of dissent. Think Tian An Men Square in China.

    And we have no recourse. If you resist, you go to jail, maybe not for long, not yet anyway, but jail is jail. Object to TSA and you miss your flight. They know it and use it. The courts do nothing about this. They too are feds.

    Fools say, “If you are not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to fear.” This might be true, or partly true, or sometimes true, or occasionally plausible, if government were benevolent. It isn’t.

    My guess is that they will fold in the end. They will be threatened with God only knows what and they will fold.

    The Obama administration is not shy about threatening people to get what they want. We have many examples to go by.

    Google and Apple will fold? LOL. Putting this one in my wacky BB prediction file! Right next to "there will be no elections in 2016", the "Dow will be at 6,000 soon" and others.

    Don't go off the deep end there, Charlie.

    Not in a business sense.

    They will eventually give in to government "requests" on this matter when and if they are made.
    Google already has a history of doing just that in China.

    Another hypothetical. Is insults all you have?

    I apologize for misinterpreting your post. I thought you meant they would go out of business. My bad.

    Yep and the Obamabots will all go along with it. We have many examples of that to go by to unfortunately.
