I totally agree. He was in bed with the cartel and the whole purpose of the company seemed to be to serve them. Personally I seen some humor in it. He didn't roll because he didn't want to die.

But the bigger take away for me that was sort of hidden was all the anti-encryption laws that are starting to come into being.

Don't worry. You phone is not listening to you. It's definitely not watching you. It's not giving away all your vital stats. So don't worry. Be happy. And enjoy your new shiny phones.

Aren't they nice? Look at all the cool things they do! Games! Texts. Pictures! Music!! Porn!!

And it's all *free !!

*free, if your time is worthless
