You probably won't have to ever worry about ATS but websites like Google, Microsoft, and Yahoo are releasing "transparency reports" which has happened
a few times in the past, but now they are doing so because the scandal has become so big that they fear that they will be losing their customers.
What are their plans? Their plans is to go via Verizon route and charge the government for information. Why's that? Because if they claim that they
are working hard to block the government from cracking their software, people will regain trust but by law these companies must comply with the
government no matter what. However they could sell the user's data as part of the cost to retrieve the information.
That means that they can look good to the general public and regain their trust while selling their info in the back like they do with businesses. The
government is a business in their own right so it won't really change a thing. If they do get caught again however, Google could potentially tank
completely because they would have effectively lied again and again to us, or at least deceived.
This isn't just Google that people should be worried about, but they are the biggest name in the industry and people should not trust them with their
private information. Browsing habits constitutes as private information, don't forget that. I hope this little warning is useful to at least some
