Apple appeals court decision on unlocking an iPhone



Apple is seeking a reversal of a US court ruling, which ordered it to help FBI investigators unlock the iPhone of one of the San Bernardino shooters.

  1. Why is it not an issue for the police to get an order to search my home when there is probable cause in this case association with a murdering spree but it becomes an issue if that search is electronic.

  2. The US government has been violating the constitution for decades, particularly the 4th amendment and particularly since 9/11 when mass surveillance became effective. The US tried a similar stunt last year when it tried to violate international law by ordering Microsoft to hand over the servers of Irish Hotmail account holders, thus violating the privacy rights of the citizens of its ally without any legal justification for requiring all of that meta data on an entire population of users. I am glad that these big companies see beyond profit and sense a moral obligation in ensuring that the US government does not evolve into a nightmare version of George Orwell's Big Brother where everyone lacks any real sense of privacy in every facet of their lives.
