The Daily Beast: “A 2015 court case shows that the tech giant has been willing to play ball with the government before—and is only stopping now because it might ‘tarnish the Apple brand.’
Apple CEO Tim Cook declared on Wednesday that his company wouldn’t comply with a government search warrant to unlock an iPhone used by one of the San Bernardino killers, a significant escalation in a long-running debate between technology companies and the government over access to people’s electronically-stored private information.
But in a similar case in New York last year, Apple acknowledged that it could extract such data if it wanted to.”
Opinion: So, Apple has been asked to open the iPhone of a terrorist who killed 14 American citizens in cold blood in San Bernardino.
Why is Apple’s CEO not being held for obstructing justice? And why do I still own an iphone???
