Re: Did the FBI really need Help
The security theatre going on is wide and deep.

The FBI thought it could sneak the all writs action by, because everyone would be distracted by them waving the 5C high,

Ignoring all the tech for a sec; the FBI seems not ready to consider that if that phone was used for terror activities, the issuer of that phone might be liable too. And who owned it? San Bernadino. The FBI going to arrest them too?

Re: Did the FBI really need Help
Yes, hard to believe the government could not find the info they wanted without the big dust-up with Apple


Does anyone come out ahead on this? Apple has people all over the world eager to break whatever security is has, just for the fun of it, or for money. The Justice department has egg all over its face one way or the other. And in the end, they are going to get the data and break Apple's security. Black eyes all around.
