I make these valid and logical points, both of which you exhibit, as do
hundreds of millions of innocents...
1. Apple marketing /wants/ you to think your adversary will go frontal with
an insanely expensive brute-force attack - which is what makes you /feel/
safe - but which isn't how they'll go since there are /plenty/ of weak
links in /all/ consumer-grade mobile phones.
2. You think, because of the above, that brand X phones are, somehow,
magically, immune to all those weak links, which is a pacifying fiction
that is what I term your belief system built upon a house of cards.
3. Even with the above, /all/ existing ciphers have been or will be broken
(but we won't know this until 50 years after the fact, just as we didn't
know that Roosevelt knew that Japan was making peace overtures to Stalin
not only months before, but as close as the day before the Russians
attacked and our allies, the Russians, never bothered to tell us this
These are merely logical outcomes of valid verified facts.
