Tune in this evening, January 3, at 11pm EST for Worldmeets.US radio news with Managing Editor William Kern. Tonight we'll look at the most recent revelations from Germany's Der Spiegel that the NSA has managed to infiltrate the inner workings of the Apple iPhone with malware called DROUPOUT JEEP, and the agency's plans to build a quantum computer capable of cracking all existing encryption. We'll also ask whether, as Die Welt columnist Torsten Krauel claims, the Pope is being too hard on the wealthy, and whether we should worry, as columnist Jonas Pulver of Switzerland's Le Temps does, about Google's purchase of eight major robotics firms, including military robot maker Boston dynamics. Finally, we will examine the damage done to Russian orphans by Vladimir Putin's efforts to gain political leverage over Washington.
