兩篇文章與一則 tweet 剛好可以一起看。
兩篇文章分別是「Don't Use Allo」講 Google Allo 預設沒有加密的問題，與「How Technology Hijacks People’s Minds — from a Magician and Google’s Design Ethicist」講如何設計產品來改變人的行為。
Businesses naturally want to make the choices they want you to make easier, and the choices they don’t want you to make harder. Magicians do the same thing. You make it easier for a spectator to pick the thing you want them to pick, and harder to pick the thing you don’t.
而這則 tweet 剛好解釋了這個方法背後幾個可能的利害關係，大公司受到政府單位的施壓而妥協：
The FBI stopped asking for backdoors a while back. Now they are just asking firms to not encrypt by default. The FBI will like Google Allo.
