Apple can keep their software for themselves and keep it securer. They already have software that can not be hacked. We know this because they make products that are hack proof, right? The government doesn't need to have it. Apple can only use it only if the government comes to them with a court order for a specific phone for a specific reason. I see no problem with this at all.
Someone last night made the point that Apple uses US laws for their benefit all the time. Whether its laws that allow them to keep profits off shore to evade paying taxes on it or protection from copy write infringement.
Tax evasion is against the law, tax avoidance is a common practice enabled by our tax code.
Now when they are ordered by a District Court Judge to comply and help the government with this terrorist investigation they say no?
They helped the feds many many times in the last few years open iPhones.
This a greedy money play for Apple. This is just one big advertisement for their iPhone. Calling all terrorist and child pornographers. Apple is helping you so buy their product.
Calling all folks who keep personally sensitive and valuable financial info on their phones - Apple is going to keep your info secret.
In reality, Apple and Tim Cook don't write any software, it's written by actual human beings who work for Apple. Do you think these people should be forced to do work that they might find against their principles or, heaven forbid, against their religion?
Can I have some of whatever you are smoking? On second thought...maybe not
It's a simple question - would you want Apple employees to devise some special software so the the FBI could hack that phone?
