Good news! Only half of Internet of Crap apps fumble encryption

Re: They focused on Android apps rather than iOS

Because it's a lot easier to reverse-engineer Android apps than iOS apps. This is a definite weakness when you're burying hard-coded encryption keys inside an app, but the implication is that the iOS versions of many of these apps use hard-coded keys as well.

Re: internet regulations look to DSL

That's absolutely right. I just wrote about that (shameless plug) https://www.tomsguide.com/us/why-us-internet-is-slow-and-expensive,news-26251.html

I do want Title I to stay, but net neutrality will do nothing to get Americans the kind of choices that Europeans have for broadband. Forcing the cable companies to open up their lines (often the only broadband infrastructure around) would do that. So would greater investment in modern DSL service.
