Going back to the title of this news item, please also refer back to GSMArena news to the article:
"NSA is able to install spyware on all iPhones" dated 31st December 2013
Especially the section where it says they (NSA) would require physical access to the devices...at this point some would argue that is why there was a delay in the phones release.
Now you are either going to believe something hinky is going on or not but think about this, if it was admitted there was collaboration then share prices tumble,sales drop, not good for business.
If there was NO collaboration then naturally you are going to deny it when rumours start flying about.
Now please continue with the petty bickering and fighting.
Done nothing wrong, nothing to hide. A little spying for national security never hurts..
The length people goes for attacking an OS is really astounding.
Anonymous, 26 Jan 2014Oh that one. Yes that one from the other page was to you....That was kind of obvious....Again ... moreJust stay on topic because I was trolling along with the people that accused me of trolling. We are all trolling if we stay out of topic. Better don't say something if you can't handle it or you don't have any proof to provide.
[deleted post]You made the first comment on this story. Someone points out that you have no idea whether or not Samsung does this too. To which, your immediate reaction was to call him a "jealous fanboy troll." Your usual MO.
Now, unless you have some sort of intimate knowledge about Samsung's operations, seems to me like he was the one being factual and you were the one resorting to a baseless ad hominem insult because you had "no relevant knowledge here."
We get it. You love Samsung and get overly emotional when someone says something you don't like about them. However, that doesn't mean you should go around attacking people.

Yes that one from the other page was to you....That was kind of obvious....Again if the shoe fits. I made a simple statement regarding this page. It was to nobody and came after nobody. You had to come in and made a ridiculous reply based of your fanboyism. That's your problem.
Abaddon-ISJ5, 26 Jan 2014" ridiculous non factual fanboy comment" I guess you're referring with me..dude... moreIf the shoe fits. I was referring to anyone that acts that way. Nobody specific. Funny you thought it was about you specifically though. Haha
Anonymous, 25 Jan 2014Even though you are replying to someone who just made a ridiculous non factual fanboy comment ... more" ridiculous non factual fanboy comment" I guess you're referring with me..dude you got a humour side :p
Apple has about 45% of the American market, I cant imaging that the NSA has not pushed Apple on getting info.
Plus if you have itunes it is a one stop shop for NSA, Apple Can give them
- your text messages (imessage)
- Music choices
- video choices
- pictures you have sent
- your contacts and docs stored on icloud
- where you have been (apple maps)
- who u call
No i cant see who NSA would want to talk to them
Not that i am saying Google are much better but you are not forced to leave everything in just company hands.
Corporations are all about money. Just look at IBM and COKE COLA, During world war 2 both sold stuff to the NAZI during the war

Yeah apple, nsa doesn't have access and bill Clinton didn't have sexual relations with monica Lewinsky

I do not just call people trolls when they do not agree with me. I call them that for trolling. Especially for running around multiple pages, lying, flaming, bashing, singling people out, and generally being rude.
It's not my fault if too many people like to do act like this and then get all hurt for being called out.
I laugh. The usa is under financial crisis yet they spend so much money on researching lemmings.

It's free, it's popular, it's new, it's trendy, it has "gamez and appz", everyone can make one, almost everyone thinks they need one. What's the point in this question? So what if it's open source? Is Google open source? How many Androids don't rely on Google services? Why did the consumers switch... not all did. But those who did, did it because of Nokia's S60v5, after that fiasco it was too late for Nokia and propaganda for iOS and Android was massive. People talked against Symbian for all sorts of invented reasons ("it's too complicated" "it's, like, a totally basic simple OS"). You do realize that before that USA didn't have smartphones apart from WinMo and maybe BB, but those were more for niche corporate users than for regular consumers. Once they had something competitive of course they wanted the whole world to know about it and use it because "nothing else existed before". As for the rest, it might not have been a conspiracy, just bad decisions. A lot of them by Elop.
