Heavy Breathing

FBI Director James Comey has chimed in the battle over the locked iPhone owned by the San Bernardino shooter: “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. 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.” Tim Cook continues to argue that “the case is about much more than a single phone or a single investigation.”

+ According to Reuters, some San Bernardino victims are set to oppose Apple on iPhone encryption. And they aren’t the only ones lining up on that side of the debate. According to a Pew survey, there’s more support for the Justice Department than for Apple.
