Google CEO Finally Chimes In on FBI Encryption Case, Says He Agrees with Apple
Tim Cook's eloquent letter
Edward Snowden chimed in among the many voices online today that urged Google to speak up:
The call is for more than just good vibes between similar corporations. Cook has always claimed that Apple doesn't want its users' data. As he told Charlie Rose in 2014 : "We're not reading your email. We're not reading your iMessage. If the government laid a subpoena on us to get your iMessage, we can't provide it. It's encrypted and we don't have the key."
But it's actually a bigger deal for Google to come forward and speak out about this. Android is open-source, for one, but Google is also based on a business model of collecting data from its users.
Here's what Pichai posted:
While that's not quite as forceful as Cook's statement, I think we can assume they're in this together.
