Apparently, the phone would actually not be hacked into, but Apple would extract all of the files to an external device such as a USB thumb drive.”

  1. If it’s done with properly executed orders from the courts, then yes, I want some reasonable protection from criminal minds, but for the same reason I do not want law enforcement agencies to have carte blanche without some return to due-process. Period.

  2. Examiner’s Lead – “Apple can hack into your iPhone”
    Singh’s Lead – “Apple can hack into your iPhone”

  3. G4Dualie is really getting beat up on by the MDN community. I am getting a kick out of him trying to defend all of his comments.

      1. You’re all so predictable. Honey Booboos all of you!

        MDN gives you a means to vote on comments and now you’re using it to beat down anyone who questions your position.

        This was the only topic I’ve commented on all week, because it’s an important topic that needs more transparency and yet as soon as I attempt to moderate the discussion, I get it broke off in my ass.

        tsk. tsk. tsk.

        Goobers all of you.

  4. By the way, I’ve started marking all of my comments with one star, saving whomever the time and trouble of marking me down.

    I love the way you guys pump up the idiots with Five-stars and dumb me down with single-stars.
