    A White House petition has now been launched to stop the US asking Apple to create backdoors to its phones.

    Signed sometime yesterday evening when there were about 2k fewer signatures... it would seem that the "sharing" piece of the process, after signing, needs to pick up the pace!

    I would think that implies people aren't sure about one of two things, a) the wisdom of signing a petition to the government on this issue and b) whether asking a friend or relative to sign it will ignite a small brushfire in the relationship. It has after all become a touchy issue thanks to people hyping the TERRORISM TERRORISM theme.

    I signed. Now the White House has some personal information about me.

    The White House already knew you all were going to sign this petition even before you signed it. OBAMA KNOWS YOU BETTER THAN YOU KNOW YOURSELVES!

    I'm curious as to why the signature count is actually decreasing when i refresh the page.

    You're obviously out of the loop on the goings on of FEMA these days. Nowadays, they're all about the white campers.

    Because I suspect the process has to be verified.

    And in 2008, everyone was saying how Bush would use his own executive order NSPD51 to prevent the election.
