Sorry to be creating a thread, but I'm storing my most personal information like my daily journal in services like iCloud and the iCloud Notes App and I thought this was a serious question that others are faced with. Is this a reason why we pay extra for Apple products because Apple is more protective of the privacy of Apple customers and the personal information of Apple customers? How is Apple more trustworthy than other companies who offer similar cloud services for users to store personal information such as Google? For example, is Apple less likely to hand over my personal journal entries to the government? Any ideas would be great!
