It’s time for Tim Cook and Apple to stand up for homosexual rights in China
Tim Cook has become a vocal activist in recent years, taking his role in charge of Apple and using to promote his personal point of view on issues.

The fact that they don’t have a law specifically banning discrimination against | Read More »
Apple’s Tim Cook is dangerous and a flaming hypocrite
Ordinarily I wouldn’t concern myself with what some billionaire far-left oligarch thinks. Usually, they don’t think about much beyond making money and having millions of people they neither know or respect suck up to them. Apple’s Steve Jobs made a career of this type of self-important asshattery. His successor, Tim Cook is no different. Weighing in on the Indiana RFRA law signed by Governor Mike | Read More »

Tech at Night: The Government should not be allowed to make us less secure
Barack Obama’s FBI director, James Comey, was previously featured in this space for his declaration that he’s troubled, that Americans would be able to take proactive measures to encrypt their own data, in ways the FBI couldn’t read at will. He tried to intimidate and bully Apple and Google into avoiding adding effective cryptography to iOS and Android. This is important because it’s only effective | Read More »
Tech at Night: The government wants your data protected, except when it doesn’t.
Sometimes the government cheers the idea that your data is being protected from the bad guys. Other times, the government grumbles and complains. It turns out they’re fine with your data being at risk, as long as it means government can get to it whenever it wants. Funny, that.
Apple and Google make the right decision on privacy
Last Thursday, FBI Director James B. Comey had a bit of a hissy fit over the news that Apple and Google are outfitting their phone operating systems with encryption that will be virtually impossible to break: FBI Director James B. Comey sharply criticized Apple and Google on Thursday for developing forms of smartphone encryption so secure that law enforcement officials cannot easily gain access to | Read More »

Tech at Night: Your phone calls and texts were never secure.
Sometimes, we forget just how little privacy we have against a determined attacker. So often we rely just on the fact that we believe our communications are of so little importance, that nobody will take the effort to try to snoop on us.
So once in a while we get concerned, when we hear about some sort of mass snooping, that means no extra effort has to be engaged to read our own individual, personal data. Then we want to assign blame, as though this mass snooping caused our lack of privacy.
We need to fix this muddled thinking and understand the limits of our privacy.

Tech at Night: The Obama FCC meets, and is pretty terrible.
So the European Union has invented a “right to be forgotten”, that is forcing Google to censor its results. Given the history of Nazi war criminals trying desperately to be forgotten, this is an odd thing for the EU to be doing.
While they are opt-out, a rare thing when it comes to government, UK government censorship of the Internet exists, and nobody’s doing a thing about it at this point.
but the big story this week was the FCC meeting. It was pretty terrible, over all. A lot more on that after the jump.
