    It appears that former, aging Microsoft CEO Bill Gates wants it both ways: He has "backed the FBI, denying that they are asking for a back door," according to MacRumors.

    Mere hours later, he expressed his disappointment at reports that he backs the FBI, reports USA Today.

    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.

    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.

    The only solution is to bring Jack Bauer back out of retirement and make this his next big case. We can probably expect a lot of yelling and a high body count and when it's finished we will be thoroughly entertained. Jack also needs Chloe exonerated and back at CTU.

    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 ;).

    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.

    MacRumors reports that iCloud backups aren't as secure as iOS devices to make restoring data easier, and references an article published by The Verge titled "The iCloud Loophope: Your iPhone may be nearly impermeable, but its online backup isn’t" in which Walt Mossberg explains "the reason why iCloud data can't be made as secure as data stored solely on an iPhone or iPad."

    Hate to say it (okay, no, I don't), but, "I told you so!" :D

    Stumped, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has enlisted Israeli firm Cellebrite to help unlock the now-infamous iPhone 5c owned by Mr. Syed Farook.

    Cellebrite good times, come on!
    (It's a Cellebrītion)


    Note: I’m just recalling the song; I wasn’t chanting for Cellebrite to succeed.

    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.

    While you make one good point, I think you're giving too much credit elsewhere. I disagree with your belief concerning Apple.

    I'm not trying to play moderator or anything, but in the apparent absence of our staff lately I will humbly remind you to please not make comments of political nature that might inspire debate. :) Obama doesn't care about that iPhone. He's just a yes man to his handlers. ;)

    The whole thing is a sham. The NSA and FBI never needed Apple's "help."
