the issue is that even with a warrant there is no way to unlock a passcoded phone. Apple allegedly had a way but they have killed it. or so they claim and the FBI believes this to be true. They can get into an iCloud account but if a criminal isn't using iCloud there is nothing that can be done. Same as if said criminal is encrypting their iTunes backups and doesn't give up the password or has forgotten it. Apple can't break that block. 
what this really comes down to is that the FBI doesn't like that they will have to work harder to get what they need to nail someone. just like before smart phones were around. if he really thinks Apple etc are doing something wrong he can try to sue, bring them up on charges etc.
they knew exactly where to look so it was probably child's play to find the commas that should have been periods. typical apple to under promise and over deliver on time frames. I bet half the computer repairs they take in are done within 48 hours but they still quote 3-5 days all the time. same game
So they didnt ignore it. They were told about it. They responded. Just because tthey didn't put in s lockout doesn't mean they were doing nothing. Beside a lockout is a placebo in many respects because someone can still use piss poor security questions or phish for passwords. And there is still no proof of exactly how those few celeb accounts were accessed to know if this flaw was s factor. Heck we don't even know how many accounts there were that were actually iCloud ones
That may not have been an issue at all. The server may have kicked back any error that would bar updating to save your butt in case that software would also cause issues with the iPad.
I will love this if it means an actual magazine format that could be downloaded to the computer or iOS devices, saves for later rereading, take notes if it's a journal etc
Unfortunately if Cook had been listening this kind of a system would have been in place already, and perhaps for a couple of years. As nasty as it sounds I'm glad this fight happened because now perhaps folks will start asking Apple why they haven't done something already
They had a system that should have been better than that but either it failed or some stores failed to use it properly. And in either case that needs to be dealt with.  The system was supposed to work that at some designated point like 2 hours prior to doors opening, staffers were supposed to go out and issue reservations to each person in line. These would be tied to a  name, a phone number and a specific model phone right down to the color. A real time inventory tracking...
They wouldn't do it weeks ahead of the launch because they won't do it before the product has been announced.  Now a system like in China where you go online and sign up for the model you want and then you are randomly issued a reservation which you can either request to pick up in the store on a day within 72 hours of when you got the 'pass' or complete the order and have it already paid and secured, to also pick up in store. And have that system start within hours of the...
Who says they are. You buy it full price and activate it on a new line which you turn around and cancel just hours later. You might lose $50 in the process but what's that compared to selling the phone for as much as $4000 overseas
