If you’re following the news, then you know that the FBI and Apple have been embroiled in a major battle for weeks. One of the two terrorists who shot dead fourteen people in San Bernardino and 22 others that were seriously injured, dropped his iPhone 5c during the massacre.
The FBI claims that crucial information can be on the phone and wants Apple to disable certain protection mechanisms of the iPhone, so the FBI can get unlimited passwords. Apple refuses to cooperate, because if Apple would do this, this will have far reaching consequences for all Apple users.
The debate has become a debate on privacy versus security. The HBO program Last Week with John Oliver spent attention to this issue and it is lovely to look at.
