Andrew Stone, an Ex-NeXT developer claims that Steve Jobs would have rather died before giving in to the NSA's privacy violating surveillance program.

Even though Jobs had many friends at the NSA, Stone believes there is no way Jobs would have ever caved in.

“Steve Jobs would’ve rather died than give into that, even though he had a lot of friends at the NSA,” he told Cult of Mac, shaking his head. “Microsoft caved in first, then everyone else. Steve would’ve just never done it.”
