Wouldn’t it be great if more technology companies focused on the selling point of security and privacy rather than superfluous bells-and-whistles?
Keep dreaming… it’s not going to happen. Because for the vast majority of people, security and privacy simply aren’t sexy. But curvy touch screens, pull-out capacitive keyboards and “all that good stuff” are.

You can’t imagine Steve Jobs or Tim Cook ever demonstrating the Apple iPhone quite like that, can you?
