So nearly everyone is talking about Apple and security, but almost no one is providing the facts in the conversation. On the one side you have SECURITY, PRIVACY, GOVERNMENT OVERREACH, on the other side you have NATIONAL SECURITY and SAFETY OF ALL AMERICANS. But around the hype what are the actual facts?
For anyone unfamiliar with the case, this surrounds an iPhone recovered by the FBI that belonged to one of the San Bernadino terrorist's who attacked a holiday party, December 2, 2015, killing 14 and wounding 22. The phone in question is reported to have belonged to Syed Farook.
Tim Cook wrote in a letter issued to their customers, "We have great respect for the professionals at the FBI, and we believe their intentions are good. Up to this point, we have done everything that is both within our power and within the law to help them. But now the U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create. They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone." That reads so pro Apple customers and the protection of their devices that how can you possible disagree with Apple?
