Apple reveals number of government requests for customer data
The Next Web: Apple published a report that details the number of consumer data requests it receives from governments around the world. The company also said it “strongly” opposes limits on the number of U.S. government requests it can report. 

At present, the company is limited to only providing a broad range for the number from the US government. …
The report, which appears to be a first for Apple, contains all the data that the company is legally allowed to share. Moving forward, Apple said that it will “continue to advocate for greater transparency.”
Apple revealed in June that it had received 4,000-5,000 requests from US officials from December 2012 to May 2013. The firm said at the time that its legal team reviews each requests and only provides the “narrowest possible set of information” to the authorities when appropriate.

Look at the full report, and you’ll see some depressing things in there.

Apple - iPhone 5s - TV Ad - Metal Mastered

Almost like a Bond opening title sequence. Maybe more like an X-Men or Spider Man one.

This is what Kim Kardashian was thinking of when she got her iPhone 5.

SEC hits Citigroup with another round of fines over illegal disclosures

  • $2M in fines were paid by Citigroup last year, afer it was found that the company illegally provided certain clients with unpublished company research on Facebook’s initial public offering back in May 2012.
  • $30M in fines have now been levied against Citigroup, after the SEC has once again found the company guilty of illegally providing unpublished research to select clients, this time giving some investors ample time to clear Apple shares ahead of a predicted shortage in iPhone 5S and 5C devices. source

“So, Scoble, why aren’t you getting the new iPhone then?”

Easy: for me Google Glass is the future. It works best on Android. Until I stop believing Google Glass is the future I won’t switch off of Android (or, until Apple has a decent competitor).

Robert Scoble, master of the Google Glass selfie, thinks iPhone is a better platform but is sticking with Android because he likes wearing this crazy thing on his face.
