    Should be a no brainer.
    True. We haven't exactly heard about the FBI trying to hack into an Android phone for months on end, and failing.

    Running for President and trying to tear down one of the few American companies that can compete and beat other companies around the world. Then switches to a Korean manufacturer of phones that steals American company's ideas for software and design...let's elect this guy.

    Perfect reason for Tim Cook not to comply: "Your Honour, things were just about working out fine, and then Donald Trump waded into the matter... now it's beyond a matter of principle, it's life or death".

    Trump later committed his boycott Apple message to the digital record in yet another tweet. But this time he used an Android device.

    I personally do not know.

    Trump and Obama are both wrong on this issue. Obama does not have the guts to stand up to his own DoJ, while Trump does not have the brains to think before he speaks. Someone in the media might also ask Trump whether he'll now stop tweeting since Dorsey has come out in support of Apple and Cook. 

    Moreover, not a single other Presidential candidate has come out in favor of Apple's stance to favor privacy. At at the end of the day, they're all a bunch of scared, clueless, dissembling hypocrites.

    Or let's elect Hillary with her many secrets and history of lying, or let's elect Bernie...a guy who wants to grow government to monstrous proportions by stealing from anyone and everyone with money to give to someone else's deadbeat kids.

    I mentioned that earlier in the thread. Not one of them, on either side, has come out in favor of Apple.

    What's this "Obama ordered it", "Obama's DOJ ordered it" cr**??? What are you people smoking? Do some of you honestly believe either the FBI or Judge Sheri Pym were acting on Obama's orders, or consulted with him on this? I don't understand how you can believe Rush Limbaugh on the one hand and still think Trump's an idiot. C'mon, at least be consistent.
    Seriously, Obama has the White House and DOJ supporting this action. He can stop it at any time.

    As President, the FBI, CIA and NSA are answerable to Obama. He's the Commander-In-Chief!

    While not directly supporting Apple, Rubio came close stating its complicated and there shouldn't be a rush job.

    The vast majority of posts in this thread sound very misinformed.

    Please READ: http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-apple-fbi-motion-to-compel-20160219-story.html


    Like they're telling the truth. Sure it starts with one phone just like an avalanche starts with one snowflake. Now it's terrorism, tomorrow the threshold gets lowered to children, then finally it'll be protesters and traffic stops. 

    Plus the US isn't in a vacuum. China and other countries will use it against dissidents and "spies". One phone opens Pandora's box.

    Bozo

    What a piece of c**p this guy is.
    Obama's DOJ said this earlier today, accusing Apple of only caring about profits and their image.

    "Apple's current refusal to comply with the court's order, despite the technical feasibility of doing so, instead appears to be based on its concern for its business model and public brand marketing strategy," 

    Obama is a bozo and a piece of c**p. Trump is not suing Apple and filing motions against them, Obama is filing motions against Apple.
    Big difference: neither Obama nor the DOJ though are publicly calling for a boycott of an American company, which would have a material impact on its stockholders, who are Democrats, independents, AND Republicans.  As the article pointed out, he switched to an Android phone to prove he's serious about it.  Do you think his rich buddies (if he has any "rich buddies" left, he's probably pissed all of them off in some way) or supporters will send him a "Thank you" basket for impacting their Apple stock holdings if people really buy into his boycott?  He doesn't think before he speaks, and he shoots other people in the foot in the process (Apple stockholders, in this case).

    Better say nothing, or think before saying something than talk pure crap.

    You are disappointing me Donald. You are a hypocrite like all the others.  And are wrong on this topic (water boarding too.)
    He's right about water boarding. I agree with him on that topic.
    Another idiocy from you; elected Bush didn't you?.
    Torture doesn't work (proven) and waterboarding is torture; you lose.

    Oh Yeah?

    Instead of making a useless statement with any proof to back it up, why not respond intelligently and show me who has come out in support of Apple? Obama? Hillary? Bush? Kasich? Rubio? Cruz?

    Who?

    That's a ridiculous comparison. DOJ lawyers in an individual case have no connection to the policies of the administration in office at the same time. Attributing their legal position to a President is not just a stretch, it's false. Then claiming the comparison is equivalent to the direct staments of Trump is silly.

    Throwing Obama into the mix is just pure deflection. Ya know, it's perfectly ok to just say Trump is wrong on this specific issue and not wrap your issues with Obama up in that viewpoint.
