What are your thoughts on this?
I read it previously today. Solid method to go out with it publicly which will make it harder for US government to take any actions against Apple as there will be a lot of fuzz about it if they did it. It is really crazy what governments are trying to do really, as the internet isn't free at all anymore. In some cases it might be useful sure, but I agree with Cooks that they will most likely misuse their power once they are able to.
Disclaimer: far from know-it-all person, just thought I would drop my 2 cents.*
Disclaimer 2: I don't have 2 cents to drop.
Tim Cook cooked up a nice lil story... :dance:
The internet is still as free as it once was, just not for the nonces and the criminally insane.
What did Edward Snowden teach us about government surveillance? Did he teach us that governments are not to be trusted?
He also taught us the government is going to watch us anyway, regardless of what security measurements other companies put (or don't put) in place.
You can go public with it until the cows come home. And yes people will bitch, whine and cry about it. But ultimately, the government does what it wants.
It says something that terrorists used iPhones. They probably knew that would happen. "You can kill me but you'll never get into my phone."
Who got the last laugh here?
