Apple has come out against a government request to create a tool that would allow iPhones and iPads to be brute-force hacked faster and more easily than ever. Apple has said that once such a tool is made, it will inevitably get out, and everyone from other countries to criminals will get their hands on it.
As a result, some hyperbolic public figures have sought to hijack the cause for their own publicity by suggesting a boycott of Apple products. We disagree, and we're putting our money where our morals are — by buying an iPhone and giving it to one of you. (Technically a US$600 gift certificate.)
