Apple resisting magistrate order to share iPhone information - for dummies
The bigger the lie the more people will believe it.

Truth in plain sight: Presenting what's going on as what's coming
Apple's CEO Cook compared it to a master key, capable of opening hundreds of millions of locks, and said there was no way to keep the technique secret once it's developed.
"Once the information is known, or a way to bypass the code is revealed, the encryption can be defeated by anyone with that knowledge,"
Rep. Justin Amash, R-Mich., called the Justice Department's request "... unconstitutional."

BIG LIE technique: "an extraordinary legal fight" "only for one"
Mockery using the "San Bernardino shootng", one of the countless episodes of the fake shooting series.
"A U.S. magistrate's order for Apple Inc. to help the FBI hack into an iPhone used by the gunman in the mass shooting in San Bernardino, California, sets up an extraordinary legal fight with implications for ordinary consumers and digital privacy."
What's going on for all is packaged as what's coming ... only for one:
"The Justice Department said it was asking Apple to help unlock only the iPhone used by Farook and owned by the county government where Farook worked as an environmental inspector. The judge said the software should include a "unique identifier" so that it can't be used to unlock other iPhones"

What this psy-op of the "state vs Apple and Microsoft" series diverts from
Same as previous episodes of this series of Illuminati THEATER, the diversion agendas range:
- from Apple and Microsoft operating systems (all Windows, all Mac OS X, all iOS) as the main illuminati weapons to spy on citizens
- to the ongoing persecution of Google, as just illustrated with another "one billion fine for unpaid taxes".

Reminder:
- Google is the only major information company resisting the illuminati but also, together with Samsung, one of only two companies not ontrolled by the illuminati.
- Apple since Steve Jobs was murdered and replaced with a kind of double, same as Microsoft after Gates moved from computer freak to "illuminati billionaire", the same role as Trump: both operated by the illuminazus (NSA/CIA/MI5/etc).

What is amazing is that the F.B.I., NSA, CIA, or no other federal agency has a single employee who is capable of breaching the security of an Apple phone? Really? Perhaps is that is the case we should contract with Apple to protect our computers and national military weapons secrets.

Why not simply make it a crime to have one like they want to do with guns? Obama could issue another Executive Order.

McAfee offers to unlock iPhone for FBI...

John McAfee offers to unlock killer's iPhone for FBI
Fri, 19 Feb 2016 | Anti-virus creator John McAfee claims he can break the encryption on an iPhone that belonged to San Bernardino killer Syed Farook.
Anti-virus software creator John McAfee has said he will break the encryption on an iPhone that belonged to San Bernardino killer Syed Farook. Mr McAfee made the offer to the FBI in an article published by Business Insider. Apple has refused to comply with a court order asking it to unlock the device, dividing opinion over whether the firm should be compelled to do so. Mr McAfee said he and his team would take on the task "free of charge".

John McAfee has said he will decrypt the phone "for free"​

The offer came as Mr McAfee continues his campaign as a US presidential candidate for the Libertarian Party. "It will take us three weeks," he claimed in his article. Security expert Graham Cluley told the BBC he was sceptical of Mr McAfee's claims. "The iPhone is notoriously difficult to hack compared to other devices," he said.

'Dead men's tales'

For instance, Mr Cluley cast doubts on Mr McAfee's idea that he could use "social engineering" to work out the pass-code of Farook's locked iPhone. This is a process by which hackers try to find out login credentials by tricking people into giving them away. "In a nutshell, dead men tell no tales," said Mr Cluley. "Good luck to Mr McAfee trying to socially engineer a corpse into revealing its pass-code." "The FBI isn't interested anyway, they want to set a precedent that there shouldn't be locks they can't break," he added. In his article, Mr McAfee stated that he was keen to unlock the device because he didn't want Apple to be forced to implement a "back door" - a method by which security services could access data on encrypted devices.

Chief executive of Apple Tim Cook had previously said in a statement that the firm did not want to co-operate. He argued that introducing a back door would make all iPhones vulnerable to hacking by criminals. Mr McAfee believes that it would be possible to retrieve data from the phone by other means - though he did not give many details of how it would be done. "I would eat my shoe on the Neil Cavuto [television] show if we could not break the encryption on the San Bernardino phone," he added. Some, including the Australian Children's eSafety Commissioner who spoke to tech website ZDNet, have said that Apple would not necessarily have to introduce a back door, but that the firm is only being asked to provide access to a single device.

Does an individual's privacy trump the public's safety & security?...

Apple's fight with U.S. could speed development of government-proof devices
23 Feb 2016 - The legal showdown between Apple Inc and U.S. law enforcement over encryption, no matter the outcome, will likely accelerate tech company efforts to engineer safeguards against government intrusion, tech industry executives say.
Already, an emerging industry is marketing super-secure phones and mobile applications. An Apple executive said the company will strengthen its encryption if it wins its court battle with the federal government, which last week secured a court order requiring Apple engineers to help extract data from a phone associated with the mass shootings in San Bernardino. The executive spoke on condition of anonymity. An Apple spokesperson declined to comment publicly.

If Apple loses the court case, the legal precedent could give the U.S. government broad authority to order companies to assist in breaking into encrypted products. But even a government victory could have unintended consequences for law enforcement, potentially prompting a wave of investment by U.S. tech companies in security systems that even their own engineers can't access, said Jonathan Zittrain, co-founder of Harvard University's Berkman Center for Internet & Society. "A success for the government in this case may further spur Apple and others to develop devices that the makers aren't privileged to crack," he said.

The fast-growing online storage provider Box has already made it a priority to give customers sole custody of data, said Joel De la Garza, chief information security officer at the company. The intent is to make it impossible for the company to access its customers' data - even under a government order, he said. "Our goal is to achieve a `zero-knowledge' state" for the company, he said, "where our customers have total control over their data." It's unclear whether Apple can - or would even want to - make smartphones the company can't access. Two Apple employees familiar with the company's security strategy said the company had no such plans.

FBI Director Comey Addresses Apple Clash
Feb 22, 2016 | WASHINGTON -- The FBI is resorting to the courts to force Apple to unlock the San Bernardino gunman's iPhone not to "set a precedent or send any kind of message," but to conduct a complete investigation, FBI Director James Comey said Sunday.
In a plainspoken statement, Comey said that the scale of the San Bernardino attacks, which left 14 people dead and 22 people injured warranted the pursuit of all leads, including reviewing Syed Rizwan Farook's iPhone 5c. "I hope folks will take a deep breath and stop saying the world is ending, but instead use that breath to talk to each other," Comey said. "We simply want the chance, with a search warrant, to try to guess the terrorist's passcode without the phone essentially self-destructing and without it taking a decade to guess correctly. That's it," Comey said. "We don't want to break anyone's encryption or set a master key loose on the land."

Comey's statement served as a rejoinder to comments made earlier in the day by Apple attorney Ted Olson, who predicted the FBI's request would unleash "Pandora's box" and compromise the privacy of millions of Apple customers. "There's no limit to what the government could require Apple to do if it succeeds this way," Olson told host George Stephanopoulos on ABC's "This Week." But Apple "has to draw the line at re-creating code, changing its iPhone, putting its engineers and creative talents to destroy the iPhone as it exists," Olson said. The FBI has been investigating the Dec. 2 attacks by Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik, who stormed into the Inland Regional Center and gunned down his coworkers in the San Bernardino County Public Health Department.

Investigators believe Farook's smartphone, issued to him by the county, "may contain critical communications" around the time of the shooting. The FBI has a warrant to search the iPhone, but Apple's encryption technology erases the phone's data after 10 failed attempts to break the passcode. After the San Bernardino shooting, Apple provided the FBI with data from Farook's work iPhone that he had backed up remotely. But he did not save to iCloud from Oct. 19 to the date of the attack, leaving about seven weeks of potential messages, texts and photos for investigators to review. "Maybe the phone holds the clue to finding more terrorists. Maybe it doesn't," Comey said Sunday. "But we can't look the survivors in the eye, or ourselves in the mirror, if we don't follow this lead."

Has the gov made a case for why that ONE S.B. cell phone is so important for public safety to warrant the infringement on consumer privacy?

Thanks for dumbing down for us plebes. My takeaway from this is: Don't keep information on your person, your property or device that is self incriminating and hide under the first amendment. Legal search warrants have a way of getting past all that junk.
