    So...ALL of the links you posted just stated that "Apple agreed to let the Chinese government perform 'security checks' to confirm that there were no 'backdoors' that might let the US government read Chinese citizens' data. The country had threatened Apple's access to the Chinese market."  So the fact that Apple worked with China to ensure there were no backdoors is somehow working with China to remove encryption as the FBI is asking to do? 

     The agreement between Apple and China in no way exposes the security of millions of iOS users.  In fact, the Chinese government, on the face of this negotiation, is actually doubling down on iOS encryption ar the consumer level.

     No facts reported in any of those pieces reflect apples willingness to expose the encryption or threaten security for iOS for the Chinese government.

  • US Department of Justice files motion to force Apple to crack terrorist's iPhone

    I agree with you...

    After 23 years of working for the govt in and with different 3 letter agencies, I can tell you without any doubt that there is no such thing as an EXCEPTION to a rule.  Once you've done something by exception, it becomes PRECEDENCE.  

    That rule I learned early on when it came back and bit me in the butt several times.

    One phone = Precedent = All phones/devices no longer private.
    No privacy = No liberty (Give me Liberty or give me Death)
    Apple has taken the correct position on this issue.
    Apple is too big to fail = They will prevail.
