Legal This story is getting bigger and bigger. Even though most Americans probably already knew, it is now official: the United States government, through its National Security Agency, is collecting the communications and data of all American citizens, and of non-Americans using American services, through a wide collaboration with the large companies in technology, like Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and so on. Interestingly enough, the NSA itself, as well as the US government, have repeatedly and firmly denied this massive spying on Americans and non-Americans took place at all.

I think I would prefer to just use a service located in another country. It is clear that as long as this has been going on, companies are remaining truly silent. This, America, is just another reason why we're losing jobs left and right to countries like Mexico, China and India. I would not be surprised if even more U.S. online/tech companies either shut down or pack up and move away after this. No one will even *want* to do business in this country.
