    Bill Gates has said that Apple should help the government to break into a terrorist’s phone.

    The Microsoft founder has taken a major step away from almost all of the tech establishment by arguing that Apple’s protests about an FBI order are overblown.

    Apple has been feuding with the US government after it made clear that it would not comply with a court order that required it to help break into a phone used by one of the San Bernardino killers. The company has argued that doing so would set a dangerous precedent, allowing other companies to ask for phones to be unlocked, as well as leading to a weakening of security across devices.

    Mr Gates rejected that argument. The situation is “a specific case where the government is asking for access to information,” he said in an interview with the Financial Times.

    Giving over the information is similar to a company handing over phone records, he said.

    Mr Gates’ intervention is a break away from the leaders of almost every technology companies. Facebook, Twitter and Google founders and bosses have all sided with Apple in the ongoing dispute, though some have done so more forcefully than others.

    Apple should not comply. Nor should any company.

    Apple parks billions of dollars overseas, produces a huge amount of parts in China while reaping the benefits of selling their shit in the US, and now won't help us with a case of terrorism?

    I hope Tim Cook gets aids from his boyfriend.

    Court Order in a case of terrorism. Hack the phone, take the info, put it on a thumb drive, then re-encryte and destroy the decryption software. Keep it to a small, high level team, make them sign NDA's, etc.

    Bill Gates 'disappointed' in reports he sides with FBI in Apple case

    Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates says he was "disappointed" in reports claiming he sides with the FBI in its battle with Apple over breaking into an iPhone. He says the reports did not reflect his view on the issue.

    I'm no computer hacking expert or anything, but if the cops/FBI are in possession of the phone, can't THEY just crack into it and see everything that's been goin on?
    Don't they do it w pediphiles all the time?
    What am I missing here?
