Governments around the world are addicted to intercepting and spying on everyone's computers. They feel it is their right.
Before too long, governments will be requiring the computer giants to build back doors into their systems to allow the government in.
But this is not in the interests of the computer giants. Inherently insecure and inherently eavesdropped computers and networks are of much less value to end users.
So the computer giants must hurry up and lock things down in a permanent and irreversible manner before the governments really get their legislative act together. It's a race.
