What most people have missed in the FBI argument is that Apple provided them with a series of things they could do to get at the data. They seam to wish that the courts or congress require companies like Apple, to create a back door on demand. The idea of an open door into the tech in my home is a bit scary. Imagine The government being able to activate the video or mic on your xbox kinect for surveillance. Even scarier is the hacker that can find it’s way into these created back door. Think of the foreign protester, whose government claim they are a terrorist and what this precedent would mean to them.
The FBI already has the back up of this device unto 6 weeks ago, seams like a play for power by the FBI more than a need for actual information.
