I have been watching this story unfold across the world. Apple and the FBI. If you haven’t heard about it, the FBI want Apple to give them access to their phones through some sort of software. Apple, so far, have steadfastly refused. The FBI say they want to access the phones of criminals and terrorists. Now there’s a big ho-ha going on with the FBI saying one thing and Apple saying no, nicht, nine, nonk!
The way I see it, I bet somewhere in the world is a 13 year old schoolboy, sitting in his bedroom and while all his friends are out playing ball games, he’s going through an old Apple phone and working out how to get into the software and do what the FBI are unable to do. There’s always one, usually in Russia. It makes me laugh how these young guys will always break through whatever man made virtual fences are put before them.
On a personal note, it doesn’t bother me if Apple do go ahead and give the FBI the necessary software to unlock the phones. I have nothing to hide, but at the same time I fully respect and understand all those that are against it. Who knows how it will unfold. An Apple a day keeps the FBI away!
Here’s one story about it on the BBC.
