But Apple didn't ignore it. They filed a rebuttal to the court order.
That's what's going through the court system now.

I think all the phones are hackable.

But if the Police want to hack a personal device, it is rather personal; ye know. They should find someone who could and would do that for them. It is not like legal, but anyway. It was about preventing the crimes.

No servants would hack the young masters' and mastresses' phones.

Why don't the Police find some ways else rather than blatantly frisk through everybody's pockets? That is like the presequals of invading Iraq.

The Police in the past still got their guys within the permits of the antique laws and equipment. The servants were here to ease the burdens, not creating the tentions.

Well, well, they just admitted they don't need Apple's help to get into the phone.

In a new court filing, the government said an outside party had demonstrated a way for the F.B.I. to possibly unlock the phone used by the gunman, Syed Rizwan Farook. The hearing in the contentious case — Apple has loudly opposed opening the iPhone, citing privacy concerns and igniting a heated debate — was originally set for Tuesday.

While the Justice Department must test this method, if it works “it should eliminate the need for the assistance from Apple,” it said in its filing. The Justice Department added that it would file a status report by April 5 on its progress.

McAfee is a different character so I don't know if I believe or he is just trying to be relevant but it was interesting his discussion of how the Stingray might be useful

They never did. They just wanted to force Apple to submit and when they got a much bigger fight than expected they decided to back off and save face.
