    There's a story going around that quotes NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden's lawyer as saying Snowden won't use an iPhone because it has "special software that can activate itself without the owner, [sic] having to press a button and gather information about him". Instead, the lawyer says, "he's got a simple phone". There's no first-hand account from Snowden and no details about what the "special software" might be a web cookie? who knows! but that hasn't stopped the quote from making its way across the sensationalism-over-security parts of the internet. So, what's really going on here?
