Shocker: Bill Gates sides with FBI in iPhone hack request, said tech companies should be forced to cooperate
Microsoft founder Bill Gates has said tech companies should be forced to cooperate with law enforcement authorities, entering a fractious debate between Apple and the U.S. government.

U.S. law enforcement teams want to access an iPhone that belonged to one of the terrorists involved in the San Bernardino shootings in December 2015 in which 14 people died. A U.S. magistrate ordered Apple to write software that would enable FBI investigators to break open the phone but Apple has so far refused.

There is no surprise there.

Microsoft once had a product series called Backoffice. It was quickly dubbed BackOrifice for a number of reasons...

You are 58 times as likely to be murdered by your own government than you are a terrorist. You have to wonder who your real allies really are, and the definition of "terrorist" has gotten awful interesting in the past 16 years.It is past time to unseat the ZOG, we are all terrorists in our own country.

Bill Gates has always shown poor judgement. Look at the state of Windows software -- the result of bending over while in bed with the Feds and taking it right up the back door.

Re: Shocker: Bill Gates sides with FBI in iPhone hack request, said tech companies should be forced to cooperate
I have absolutely zero fear of so called terrorists, and I don't think giving up our freedom to a government that intentionally created the problem it seeks to mitigate at the expense of said freedom is anything but an unintelligent knee-jerk reaction by a dumbed down population. It isn't freedom that needs to go, it is the ZOG. If we didn't have the ZOG we wouldn't even have a "terrorist problem". As time has gone by, the definition of "terrorist" has gotten nearly indistinguishable from "freedom fighting asymmetric warrior". The ZOG is afraid of guerrilla freedom fighter type warriors because asymmetric warfare will break it in half. Hundreds of millions of dollars to kill one "terrorist"/

Has your life gotten better under the ZOG, which took complete control when it murdered Kennedy in 1963? Is our life getting better or worst as a result of this government? Why does it consider us the enemy?

I agree. Anyone with any program skills can tell you they have the master key. They can open the phone up. They don't have to create a backdoor to every Iphone. Its complete and utter shit.

They can create an Update that only goes to that phone. The FBI already stated they didn't care what they did with the phone afterwords. Do you think the FBI, CIA, NSA, couldn't hack it, they could. But its apple, a multibillion dollar company. They dot their I's and cross their T's on this one. I know for a fact Apple can backdoor one iphone, and be completely safe from cyber crime. They won't. Why?

I'm starting to believe Apple knows and doesn't want the American people to know. It is easy to hack an iPhone. They know this....why blockade it? why? They are hiding something.

Apple is trying to profit of a terrorist that killed people. Its sad really.

Why don't you explain to us here, or on a security or tech blog, how you do it in detail?

Or even more, call the FBI and get the job done for them.

It was the feds who were/are hiding something. Apple did attempt to help the FBI unlock Farook's iPhone data via the iCloud. However, during their effort they discovered that Farook's password had been changed AFTER it was in FBI custody. The FBI came under fire for this, so they've now released a statement basically saying it must have been a screw-up that they changed the password while in their custody. And for reasons unknown, the FBI admitted that Farook's iPhone didn't backup anything to the iCloud after October 19, 2015. Apple's been given additional time to respond to the court order, due next Friday. I'm also hearing that Apple is now willing to work with the feds in creating a law that would allow the requested backdoor software to become available for FBI use.

It's about time someone should take code/encryption writing beyond the laws and reach of the US. A product can be put to market from virtually anywhere on the planet in this day and age. Somebody, somewhere has the balls to do this.

Re: Shocker: Bill Gates sides with FBI in iPhone hack request, said tech companies should be forced to cooperate
There are only three smartphones in the entire world worth having in your back pocket... iPhone, Microsoft (Nokia phones) and HTM...

If the FBI or other intelligence agency wants to access dsta from a phine of a terrorist in the true context and not a patriot deemed a terrorist for being true to the constitution, then os justified as long a due legal process has been established that demonstrates that the terrorist harmed or could harm others.

However this leg process is moot, when one considers the notion that the NSA has recorded every phone text and internet correspondence and could access any information they required to meet the same end.

It is disaappinting to note that this has not been applied to the Benghazi correspondence, nor has it been used to detect and arresst pedo networks and other nefarious activities (why not?)

The fact that Bill is agreeing is actually the righr way to proceed / as long as the phone being targeted could yield info on other connections that wish to harm US interests...
