Apple This could be big - although just how big remains unclear. "There you have. 1,000,001 Apple Devices UDIDs linking to their users and their APNS tokens. The original file contained around 12,000,000 devices. We decided a million would be enough to release. We trimmed out other personal data as, full names, cell numbers, addresses, zipcodes, etc." How did AntiSec get this data (they claim)? From an FBI laptop. Why an FBI laptop would have a file with personal information on 12 million iOS users, we don't know - especially since 10000 of them are Dutch/Belgian, and last I checked, those do not fall under FBI jurisdiction. Did the FBI obtain it from an application developer, or from Apple itself? Then again - 12 million users? From a single iOS developer? I find that hard to believe.

Is there still anyone who thinks Apple or Google or Facebook or Microsoft or Twitter or anyone won't provide data to FBI/NSA or anything like that ? Rather suprising expecially because this is the only reason why many of such houses give their products out for free ;-)

For Google, it is already known. They even have a whole sub website dedicated to listing all the takedown orders and official data access requests they are asked to comply to, month by month.

I wouldn't be concerned of "official" requests. I would be far more concerned of under-the-hood access which basically anyone provides. Expecially those free services like Facebook and so on. That smells under-the-hood controlling as hell.
