Also, from the article. Look who they say is involved. Apple, Facebook, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Skype, AOL, etc. The NSA doesn’t gather the information themselves. The companies do. That proves my point; how much data is collected on you is largely a function of the products and services you use. Choose carefully. This doesn’t work with free / open-source software since there’s no single person or company to coerce. Even if say, Mozilla added something malicious to Firefox, everyone would see it. Since the code is public, another group would take it, remove the offending code, then redistribute it as an improved version of Firefox. That’s the whole point of free software. The code is public, and anyone is free to change it.
