Apple Says Government Made Thousands Of Requests For User Info

Why doesn't Apple release actual numbers? What's with all the vague "0 to 1,000 accounts were disclosed" stuff?

In the latest report released by the Cupertino company, it revealed that in the period between January 1, 2013 and June 30, 2013, law enforcement agencies in the US have made 1,000 to 2,000 account requests that affect 2,000 to 3,000 specific accounts. Of that number, 0 to 1,000 accounts were disclosed, though Apple claims it objected to that same number of requests.
