    According to a group of hackers in India, Apple, RIM and Nokia could be providing backdoor access to the Indian government, allowing them to monitor user data. The Indian government might be insisting on this access in exchange for allowing Apple and other smartphone vendors to offer their products and services in India, they have allegedly given them access to cellular communications. The agreement appears to be called RINOA (Rim,Nokia, Apple).
    Several documents have been found referring to RINOA and how information was gathered from some of these government bodies. I know India is a large country but I’m not quite sure what is more damaging — not having a presence there at all or betraying your customers’ trust by allowing the local government to access data without their knowledge.

    well what damage is being done by accessing the data ? nothing
    indeed it is done for a good purpose.
    if parents keep an eye on children, children should feel secure instead can't blame the parents for caring about them.

    ^^ LOL, government can hardly be compared to "parents taking care of children". :pound:

    No government ought to play the role of your parent. MAi-baap sarkar is the most dangerous thing.

    And what, really, is the "government"? Do you really want a pan-chewing corrupt babu peering over your private messages?
