Apple vs. the FBI: Inside the Battle Snowden Calls "The Most Important Tech Case in a Decade"

Apple vs. the FBI: Inside the Battle Snowden Calls "The Most Important Tech Case in a Decade" | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
A major debate over privacy and online encryption has erupted after the computer giant Apple announced it will resist a court order to help the FBI break into an iPhone recovered from one of the San Bernardino shooters. Citing an 18th century law, federal prosecutors requested a court order to compel Apple to assist the investigation in unlocking the phone of Syed Rizwan Farook. In December, Farook and his wife killed 14 and injured 22 others in San Bernardino. On Tuesday night, Apple CEO Tim Cook published an open letter to customers announcing his company’s decision to fight the court order. "Up to this point, we have done everything that is both within our power and within the law to help them," Cook said. "But now the U.S. government has asked us for something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create. They have asked us to build a backdoor to the iPhone." We speak to Alex Abdo, staff attorney at the National Security Project at the American Civil Liberties Union.

Here is a good example that shows how technology and innovation can reduce our freedom.

Indeed, while technology offers to people new ways of communication and make our life easier, it also reduce our personal privacy because all our technological products could be under surveillance..

An article from The Intercept!

CIA/NSA

 

What the heck.  Apparently the CIA has full access to our phones, history, apple accounts, call/message logs, etc.  This was probably in the terms and agreements no one read.  

 

As creepy as this is, I think its a good thing,  The CIA having access to phones has the potential to deter, if not prevent terrorism.
