Tim Cook Summoned Back To China

China held up the legal sale of new iPhones until Apple more fully “explained” its security.

Then there was an attack on iCloud from within China.

Then Tim Cook goes back to China.

Meanwhile, the FBI maintains criminals and, yes, child pornographers, armed with Apple’s new security encryption measures will have damn near free reign against the good guys.

Seems obvious that both the US security apparatus and the China security apparatus wants unique access to iPhone (and probably iCloud). This does not make me feel well. That Tim Cook seems to meet more regularly with ranking Chinese officials makes me feel even worse.
