Well if your using the internet. You could use the Tor network, which allows anonymity. But that still doesn't help in regards to text messaging and calls.

I do not buy this for a second! I am sure there was a time that apple was not brought into the fascist network that is the inner working of this government and all of these multinational companies, however as soon as they started handing out Iphones for free my gut told me that it was the latest tracking attempt that has worked beautifully! Lol I bet the top executives at apple along with the top levels of the NSA have been circle jerking themselves off to the attention, those sadistic parasites of the world!
It's hard to know who to believe to be honest. These companies have a lot to loose by alienating the government and who knows what is staged propaganda and what is not? When billions and billions are on the line, I can easily see statements like these being just a way to keep the heat off, while at the same time cooperating with the NSA.
Seems to me that these vulnerabilities in these products are intentional to begin with, to be used for marketing purposes. It's hard to take this seriously considering that. It's OK to invade our privacy to know what to market to us, but they want me to think they are upset the government takes advantage of the built in weaknesses?
Benjamin: The defense industry has changed radically from when you first started in it and changed again since the end of the cold war. Where do you see the future?
Sugar: I read a piece just a couple of days ago that indicated that we really have begun a next world war. We didn't realize it but in fact we are in a next world war. And it's a different kind of war than the kind of wars we've experienced in World War I or World War II or even the Cold War and the rules are going to be different. But the one thing which I think is going to be necessary is for technological advantage wherever possible because we don't have human advantage in this country. There are many more people outside this country who would probably do us harm than we have that we can defend. The only differentiator we have is the quality of our technology.
Benjamin: How will this manifest itself?
Sugar: A great deal of digitalization of the battlefield. The greater use of improved intelligence gathering, sensing, unmanned aircraft, spacecraft, information processing, information warfare where you have a better understanding of what the other guy is saying to himself before he can actually act on it. You can interrupt it, you can disrupt it. And of course you cannot deny the need for kinetic weapons and the actual ability to strike something which is the target.

And i have a feeling if Apple is lying that they will be exposed sooner rather than later.

And how about this.
It's funny that people believe this stuff. 0.7%.
Not saying Android is any better, but a 100% success rate into ANY iPhone. Crazy.
