Apple Official Apple statement on PRISM and privacy: "Regardless of the circumstances, our Legal team conducts an evaluation of each request and, only if appropriate, we retrieve and deliver the narrowest possible set of information to the authorities. In fact, from time to time when we see inconsistencies or inaccuracies in a request, we will refuse to fulfill it." This is basically Apple re-publishing their earlier statement in a more official manner. You either believe it, or you don't.

"maybe now they no what it's like for the rest of the world, and why people hate amercia"

Because intelligence agencies in the rest of the world are not interested in spying people, right?

Getting as much info as possible is more or less the job of any such agency: the NSA is probably more efficient and has more money to spend than many, but it doesn't change the base concept.

Now, as a world citizen, one can try to fight data collection by intelligence agencies, but please, don't be naive or hypocrite: all this PRISM thing is neither new nor unexpected.

The only difference between the NSA or CIA and the Mossad or the Ministry of State Security or any other major intelligence agency is that public opinion could actually impact what US agencies are doing.

So you hate US because it is the only "big" country giving enough freedom to freely talk about such issue.

And I am not a US citizen, BTW: I am from Switzerland and I am sure the swiss Federal Intelligence Service is inefficient enough to know almost nothing about everybody ;)
