I'm curious. Was "aging" necessary? We're all aging, so why would that matter? A little personal bias there, Raf? I didn't find that word in either of your linked articles.

It's not a Mexican standoff.No surprise here: CIA director John Brennan has decided to back the FBI in the Apple/FBI Mexican standoff.
In related news, ABC World News Tonight anchor David Muir, who bears a passing resemblance to actor David Schwimmer, recently sat down with Apple CEO Tim Cook for an interview, which airs tonight.

Hmmm, I'm older than Bill by 5 years, and I created communication software for the early days of the Internet (BBSs). I'm firmly behind Tim Cook and Apples's position. This issue isn't age related. And old lives matter .Busted!
Just a bit of personal bias, yes.
That word wasn't necessary. It was an observation. It was not a direct quote from either of the linked articles, as you indicated.
"Apple is saying that the iPhone in question, used by shooter Syed Rizwan Farook, had its passcode changed within 24 hours of it coming into government possession. If that hadn't happened, then Apple thinks it might have been possible to access the phone without creating custom software to bypass the phone's passcode requirement. This could've been done through a tactic that would've connected the phone to a known Wi-Fi network and caused the device to automatically back up its data to Apple servers…"
And what would've happened if the device would've backed up its data to Apple servers? Apple and/or the FBI could've had access to the data there?
…So I'm interpreting this to mean that our data is only 100% secure as long as we don't back up to Apple servers?
Following up on the above-quoted post of mine, I may have been correct to wonder whether our iPhone data becomes less than 100% secure when it gets backed up to iCloud.We don't use or have that "tactic". I doubt it's the same as backing up to iCloud or iTunes as we know it. Your stuff is safe, Raf!
While you make one good point, I think you're giving too much credit elsewhere. I disagree with your belief concerning Apple.I don't think the FBI had to crack the phone in question on their own. In fact, I don't think they had to do anything. I think the public is being told one thing, and behind closed doors something else is happening. Obama never wanted this info to protect us. He wants it to have more control over us. I believe Apple was gonna give the government what it wanted all along.
