Wait a minute

"these iCloud subscribers had their data turned over by Apple to third-parties for these third-parties to store the data in a manner completely unknown to the subscribers"

When your order something on Amazon, you don't care what vehicle is used to get it to you, now do you ?

And when you subscribed to the iCloud, you had no idea of how it worked either, now did you ?

But now you've learned that Apple has actually managed to leverage three* different cloud environments to store your data, and all of a sudden you're all hot and bothered ? More than by learning that Apple uses slave labor to bring you your iShiny ?


* I'm supposing Apple does actually have a cloud, and that it is not just using its two competitor's stuff
