Re: Hypocrites

Go to that article. See what we said. We weren't happy with Apple's decision in Hong Kong, and we were pretty clear about that. Yes, I see some people there who made such arguments as "It's legal under Chinese law", but they seem to have received quite a few dissenting replies. I'm still not happy about that.

That said, show me a good company that protects people everywhere, rejecting requests for censorship and surveillance no matter who submitted them. I can't think of any. Apple is helping slide closer to that end of the scale, but they're not on it. I'm happy to be angry at Apple whenever they do something dishonest. This time, they haven't.
