China's surveillance state/capabilities

  • Good thing we're about to borrow another trillion from China to pay for yet another tax cut for billionaires.

    Still parroting what your handlers tell you to say I see.


    Good boy.

  • When our government tried to get Apple to unlock one of the San Berdoo shooter's iPhone and Apple said they wouldn't do it because of privacy violations and other such crap, it came out that in order for Apple to sell any iPhones in China, they had to hand over the encryption keys (something Apple said it was impossible when asked by DoJ) or Apple couldn't sell any products in China.

    “Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the president or any other public official.”

  • I thought the Chinese market iPhone differed in that respect from ones sold elsewhere. That's why Apple could provide the keys to the Chinese government.

    I could be wrong, but that was my understanding.

    I’d forgotten about that, but you’re right.

    Hardware wise, iPhones, no matter the region, are the same. The excuse Apple gave the DoJ when asked to decrypt the San Berdoo shooter's phone was pure bullshit since there was nothing technical preventing Apple for providing the encryption keys, which they readily provided to the Chinese government.

    They only handed it to the Chinks so they could sell phones there probably. I'm glad they didn't cooperate with the US Gov., but fuck them for giving it to the yellow menace.

    Climate warming has always been a good thing. When the climate gets warmer, life thrives on earth. Global warming has always been a good thing. I thank God for global warming. Climate alarmists are fucking retarded.

  • It probably had a lot to do with the difference in right to privacy laws too..

    Apple giving the US government the keys could have opened the door to a huge class action law suit within the USA. No such right exists in China, so no repercussions could come of it.

  • It's the 1930s all over again. Just like back then the west is again just watching while a brutal fascist nation builds an enormous war machine using our money.

    There is no difference between communism and socialism, except in the means of achieving the same ultimate end: communism proposes to enslave men by force, socialism—by vote. It is merely the difference between murder and suicide. —Ayn Rand

    Be careful..

    Calling the communists out as the fascists they are will draw the ire of the twat twins

  • "pay for a tax cut."


    heh..

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S. Lewis
