Taking responsibility for our privacy

2014 was marked with high-profile hacks. Including the Apple hack and leak of celebrities’ nude photos.

I know we love our iThings and Androids. We know the contents of our phones could be be exposed at any time as proven over and over this year. Blaming the manufacturers don’t protect us, as proven over and over. And that’s perfectly fine to make that choice.

Now. When a government agencies announce “we approved iPhones!” and public cheer like they won something, that’s something else. It’s the US department of defence or our financial manager. Is winning the “which OS is better?” debate more important than privacy now?
