This 'push' is just another unprovable unverifiable marketing bs that is just enough for the type of audience they attract until it's all opened to FS licenses and hardware is made to accept any software that user wants it to (like it should if you bought it).

Agreed. Apple is only doing as much security as they reasonably needed to satisfy customers. Most customers don't understand the various types of suffering (and suffering risk I might add) caused by software, but large companies do. Large companies end up "making decisions" for users en masse. This is fine for button placement but falls apart logically when presented in a discussion based on trusted infrastruture. You will note that liquidse's response is conflicted. Those rationalizations are the indicators of dissonance in the privacy debate.
