Apple tries to calm stormy iWork waters with pledge to restore 18 features

We at Apple believe that our customers have a right to understand how their personal information is handled, and we consider it our responsibility to provide them with the best privacy protections available. Apple has prepared this report on the requests we receive from governments seeking information about individual users or devices in the interest of transparency for our customers around the world.

We have reported all the information we are legally allowed to share, and Apple will continue to advocate for greater transparency about the requests we receive.

Here's a direct link to Apple's report:

Are Computers Making Society More Unequal?

There are three main reasons inequality is here to stay, and will likely grow.

The first is just measurement of worker value. We're doing a lot to measure what workers are contributing to businesses, and, when you do that, very often you end up paying some people less and other people more.

The second is automation-especially in terms of smart software. Today's workplaces are often more complicated than, say, a factory for General Motors was in 1962. They require higher skills. People who have those skills are very often doing extremely well, but a lot of people don't have them, and that increases inequality.

Third is globalization. There's a lot more unskilled labor in the world, and that creates downward pressure on unskilled labor in the United States.

Today, the human-plus-machine teams are better than machines by themselves. It shows how there may always be room for a human element.
