What the government has requested in the court order (read it please), is that Apple create a patch that will bypass the "five attempts and lock" feature on the phone, so that the government can then brute force it open. The patch can be keyed to the serial number of the phone and recompiled into the O/S, so that the code is not accessible or readable. No de-encryption, no back door, no problem.
Instead we get all this spin from Apple on how the US Government is crushing our personal liberties. Sort of makes sense, when you consider that Apple off-shores US jobs, clamors for H1B visas to drive down the domestic wage base, and uses tax shelters to avoid its fair share of taxes. Just Another Greedy Corporation.
This isn't about privacy - It is about Timmy Crook satisfying the billionaire investors who own Apple, and don't want something as trivial as people getting killed by terrorists to cut into their profits. Don't fall for this scam by the ultra-rich to give the government the finger once again, and may Timmy and Co choke on their caviar.
This I do agree with:
"Apple off-shores US jobs, clamors for H1B visas to drive down the domestic wage base"
Contrary to what the high tech corporations say, there is no shortage of highly qualified people with STEM degrees in the U.S.
GOPcriminals said:These are the same people that are screaming for Hillary emails but don't want to give up the phone lock. Freekin low life scum
