There isn't a problem. Police have probable cause and a warrant to do so. Apple is being shit heels about this specific case.

The states has been investing more money in massive computers and hiring/compelling hackers than any other country and possibly than all combined.

I'm sure they can figure it out for this one phone.

The skeleton key analogy for this case remains accurate. It is ridiculous folly to compromise the security of everyone with a lock for a few cases, when you could just use a team of locksmiths from the fbi, or break the best lock picker you have rotting in jail out so he can pick the lock in question.

There is a stark difference between subpoenaing a company for evidence on a single device and undermining the security of every device on that company's network.

Care to cite this unsubstantiated claim?

I think China is on par with the U.S. in terms of actual people, but I'm not certain.

I disagree. If you read Apple's announcement, they will comply with the warrant and provide access to the phone. They have done it before.

The refusal is to provide a copy of iOS to the FBI that will bypass the encryption.

The headline and whaaaargaaaaarble over this does not equal the specificity of the task that is being requested.

Trump is 100% correct. That phone should be open to the FBI. Apple is also correct that they will not provide the means to open all phones.

As you just said, they've opened them before, and we all know damn well that they can open them without triggering the erasure software. Hence, Apple is being shitheel by saying no we won't open it or that opening this phone will compromise the others. Which is what they're saying.

This isn't about the backdoor shit the FIB wants. That can go faff off.
