Apple Asks Transparency on US Government’s Procedure of Obtaining User Informati
Apple wants complete transparency from the US government

According to Apple Balla, Apple unveils a court filing, which states that different US government agencies requested the tech giant to provide them with user information, and requests the organizations to be more transparent in their works.

Apple’s request opposes to the regulations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court), where the agency is not enabled to release the aggregate number of demands for the sake of national security.

Apple as well as other technological companies is constrained by the protocol, ultimately forces them to reveal the range of the demands, rather than the exact numbers.

Among other major technological companies, Dropbox has filed for more transparency. However, the US government hasn’t made any comment on the issue.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
