The famous whistleblower currently residing in Russia has waded into the arguments over the attempt of the Federal Bureau of Investigation to force iPhone maker to help it unlock the device of one of the San Bernardino shooters, saying that only Apple is able to bypass certain protections on the smartphone. The former NSA agent expressed his support for an American Civil Liberties Union report saying that the claims of the US law enforcement authorities in the case were fraudulent.
Aside from Snowden, other figures from Silicon Valley spoke up: for example, Bill Gates said that a discussion was needed about when the government should be able to collect data. However, Microsoft’s founder refused to take any side of the debate, despite seemingly supporting the government and then backtracking. The software giant later filed an amicus brief backing Apple against the FBI.
Of course, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak spoke out against the US law enforcement authorities, saying that the Federal Bureau of Investigation “picked the lamest case you ever could.” He explained that Verizon turned over all the phone records and text messages, but the FBI wanted to take another phone that the San Bernardino shooters didn’t destroy – their work phone. Wozniak said it was “lame and worthless” to expect there’s something on the phone and to get the iPhone maker to expose it.
We should remind you that Apple’s clash with the US government comes to a head in the United States in March when the parties will meet in federal court to debate whether Apple should be required to weaken security settings on the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters.

|give an inch thell take a mile.. the FBI cant get in one damn phone on their own then what good are they with all the high tech they have .|
|Having looked at this case it is quite clear the sherrifs dept and the FBI knew there was nothing of interest on the phone and it had not been used in 6 weeks so very unlikely it would have had any pertinent information on it to start with and the sherrif`s dept said this before the feds had them try to unlock it.In this case it is more likely that the feds saw it as an opportunity for a test case so that they do not have to get warrants or have probable cause to hack anyones phone in the future,lest we forget they have been monitoring US citizens since 2000 (at which time it was illegal and precipitated the resignation of Bill Binney) Now with encryption services on phones its not so easy to monitor everyone and so they need to have a rethink on how to solicit unbridled access to encrypted phones without having to go through the manufacturers,good luck with that when they do I will get a Blackphone since they do not have encryption keys for their phones so safer should the feds make every other company hand over theirs.

|If I remember this correctly if an iphone is locked, you just have to plug it into the pc with the correct itunes account to unlock it. this seems like a simple enough hack for the fbi to manage. there should be no need to get apple involved.|
|They did try that method but because they had previously tried to access the phone and put in the wrong password the phone reset itself when plugged into the home computer if memory serves, a moot point as the sheriff had already said they knew it had no significant data on it and Apple had already offered a transcript of anything on the phone, but by the police attempting to gain access they lost any data on the phone despite apples offer to give them a transcript of any data therein which complies with their own TOS whereby they state if any illegal messages are sent via their encrypted service they will supply law enforcement with any relevant information required.|
|It's all a smokescreen, they have access to every device, applle or not, they just don't want you to know it.|

|All they got to do is take to any Asian shop they can do it in seconds as they say any phone unlocked.|
|was there a terrorist attack in san bernidino? I keep hearing about this stupid phone thing but somehow have no idea what happened or why they want to get on someones phone|
|I'm never telling anyone about my time machine.|
|Locks have never stopped anybody that really wanted in before whether it be homes, bank vaults, or mobile devices.|
I agree with others saying this is a smoke screen test case of the FBI trying to see how much they can push around tech giants. hashtag major fail.
