Yes I did read it, I thought Apple would like Microsoft not be considered a state actor, I would like to expand the difference or how this back up your argument.Except you backed up my argument perfectly. Did you not read the last part about a state actor? This also has nothing to do with something on your personal device. Again, this case is about information stored on someone else's servers.
Apple is going to be scanning your own device using your own hardware and electricity to intentionally search for something not residing on their hardware and reporting that in order to prosecute someone. Your case does not apply.
Also, if the cloud service becomes mandatory, at that point that case is not likely to apply since it will be impossible to separate from your device and someone else's servers for something that is on your owned device.
1) you ask apple, can you take my picture and store it please.
2) Apple: Has specified by our agreement, then I will look at it before accepting to store it.
Legally is that dissimilar to a private sporting event or bar that would search people for weapon before letting them in (if that legal in the US) ?
If the cloud service become mandatory only for people that buy a phone at this time, I feel like all of this would still apply.
