Apple ≠ Facebook ≠ Google

Apple seems to be taking a different approach than Facebook or Google.

“iPhone Change To Block Police,” The Wall Street Journal, June 14, 2018 B1.  Apple “fixes” the technical hole that allows the authorities to break into the iPhone of a criminal or suspected criminal.

Is Apple more or less concerned about privacy of its users than either Google or Facebook is concerned about the privacy of their customers?  What about Apple’s demonstrated desire to block government access?  Is that more like Google (use of Google AI in weapons systems) or like Facebook (oh, heck, we’ll let just about anyone see our users’ data)?

Is controlling access to user data Governance?  Or is it a feature?  Whom do you trust more?
