There's been a lot of noise in the media over the last months about the NSA being able to tap into your email with the help of Google, Apple and others. There has been angry reaction to this news by the companies that were supposedly working hand-in-glove with the NSA. These respective companies reacted to those claims with their own public campaigns. Yet when I read the other day that Microsoft had hacked into a bloggers email account, the ugly truth and hypocrisy of it all began to unravel. Then surprisingly late last week we were all unpleasantly reminded that Apple also reserves the right to do the very same thing and beyond on your iCloud email account. It appears that our only right that we have left is to not use a company's software. So if you use any company's software, just stop yapping about privacy, because in the end, it appears it's a right that no longer exists. It's just a thing of the past.
