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.

Apple itself rapes users privacy like a pro [sic!], so it doesn't matter if it gives that data to other parties or not.

Whether people hate the USA or Apple (or whatever I guess), it is always the same story: they hate it so they turn any piece of news into another reason to hate it even more and if necessary they invent "facts".

I would hate to be a hater ;)

Then stories like faked anthrax, no found weapons of mass destruction, civilians killed by US troopers, citizens reviewed under "Prism", etc... arise to consolidate the claims.

There is no even needs of conspiracy theory or aliens coming for outa space, US if already one of a crazed country that copied much of its running from USSR : hidden secretive agencies, brain washing news, favoring industrial and military oligarchy, ...

... oddly enough the "easily" concerned follow similarly predictive patterns as well.
