  • Tim Cook: FBI is asking Apple to create 'software equivalent of cancer'

    I just zero'd out the HD on my old 2007 iMac, so I can dispose of it. Booting from a Leopard DVD, there was the option to reset the master password, something along those lines. Back in the older days, computers had a reset feature inside the box on the motherboard. I am no rocket scientist, but if Apple cannot do something like that with the iPhone, they should not be in business. People need to be responsible for their own data, not expect a company like Apple to do it. Tim Cook and Apple are correct. A software backdoor would be insane. I am talking about a physical switch inside any i-device, to reset the password.
    So any stolen iPhone could be opened up and hound get full access to all the data on the device? Do you not see any issue with that
    plan?
    If your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch is lost or stolen
