How is this different than foreign governments imposing all sorts of regulations as a matter of a business operating or making sales of products in their countries? And why should they not be allowed to do so?

Trump would water board Tim Cook to get the data.

I'll guess Apple finds a smart way to accommodate the courts. Probably reasonable that they do here.

In the meantime, I'd slow-walk and shamelessly take advantage of the free advertising for the company's gadgets.

Products like cellphones/smartphones are different from cars and clothes. I'm sure the Saudis have imprisoned (or worse) people for messages they found on phones (e.g. for acts illegal there but legal here). I doubt Apple would cave to the Saudis, but it's unfortunate RIM did.

Surprised he didn't see it through. I figure he will support John Kasich.

Wow, I definitely didn't expect Jeb to throw in the towel this early.

And go on, Republicans, nominate Trump. Let's watch you self-immolate.

well I never expected Jeb(!) to lose momentum this early. but I guess this election is kinda "anything goes" type of election. I am really expecting Ben Carson to drop out but he apparently hasn't seen how awful is campaign is getting.

I didn't think Jeb ever stood a chance. The jury's still out on Hillary too, but I wonder if the long-assumed Bush/Clinton/Bush revolving door is simply history.

It's going to be Hillary vs Rubio.

And Trump as Perot.

And after that he'll start his own 24-hour cable news network.
