Solid Support
It's really heatening to see so many individuals and companies stand up in defence of Apple's actions and that Apple/Tim Cook are willing to go so hard to defend their position. The latest rumor I read is that it will be citing the first and fifth amendments in its defence, which suggests to me that it's really digging its heels in.

I think this case will set a lot of precedents, so I have my fingers crossed.

Apple vs FBI
You would think that with all of the resources available to the federal goverment that they should be able to crack it (or be able to bypass it).

I think that it is wrong for the goverment to force a company to reveal it's secrets. Let the goverment go out. buy an iphone and crack it themselves..

Dark Reading's Primer on FBI vs Apple
I am surprised that you have not 1 opinion from the other side.  I am sure that there are reasoned, intelligent opionions in the opposite direction.

 

I am having serious trouble with this issue.  The part of me that works for / with the Government says, "Damn straight, open that box here is the warrant."  The part of me that is still a hippi of the 60s says, "Hold on there cowboy."


I want to believe that organizations (private and public) have for the most part honorable intentions.  It just doesn't seem that way.  Once the tool is there some Apple employee will take the 50,000 bribe to sell it to Mr. Terroristsky.  If not at Apple, the at some government branch where it was just laying around.

Tough choices all around.  Good luck, America.

There is a way out
Since FBI asks for a modification in the firmware, Apple can do this with a cost that can only work on that phone. Anything that goes beyond that is just a show. I love apple and using all their products, reality is they are for profit company, when they say I want to secure you data they mean I want to make more profit, this is not about my security or privacy.

Re: Solid Support
That is how our laws are getting very complex and eventually costing regular hard working population. Apple and FBI is going to be just fine. They do not care about us.

Re: Dark Reading's Primer on FBI vs Apple
For me is it an easy choice, both FPI and Apple should stop scaring public with the terrorism stick and get back to work and do this in a way that that can only wok on that phone. They have been working on all other cases, this is not any different.

Re: Apple vs FBI
Obviously they could not. The government does not really have resources and skills that Apple has.

The information in iPhone
Another point I would like to make, there should not be any information in iPhone that is not somewhere else. The only think that can be in iPhone are the pictures most likely, there rest is always somewhere else too.
