So, whatta you think? Should Apple acquiesce to the requests of the FBI and provide a back-door tool to open a locked and secure IPhone? The FBI's case is that they need Apple to provide a software tool to access a terrorist's iPhone as part of the process of conducting a criminal investigation and to possibly help prevent future terrorist acts. The FBI says that they just want access to this single IPhone once, and they are not looking to having a permanent back door for other locked Iphones (please, stop your snickering). Apple's case is that creating such a software tool would set a legal precedent that has far-reaching consequences regarding privacy, civil liberties, and effectively opening a Pandora's box regarding what and how the government can compel a company to reveal about an individual's private information. I say Apple should tell the FBI to go pound sand.
