This is not political. And please don't take it there. So, the shooters in San Bernardino had a phone. The FBI is convinced that getting into that phone would yield some information that would help them both put the pieces together in this case, and possibly help stop future attacks. Apple's CEO, Tim Cook, is standing firm on not allowing their programmers to write a "back door" program to break into the phone. Now, let's try to keep this civil. And, again, there is no need to even name a politician here. All I care about is YOUR opinion on whether security or privacy is more important to YOU. I'm pretty sure we all have mixed emotions over this. That's only natural. Where I fall down on it is privacy trumps security every time. I actually admire Apple for sticking to its guns. In fact, just knowing that the government can't hack into an Apple phone makes me want to leave Android land and go that route. No, I don't think the government cares what I do. I'm not paranoid. But still, just the fact that the government CAN'T get into one of those phones is comforting to me. And just knowing that a company chair cares enough about my privacy to take on some serious heat is impressive. Kudos to you, Mr.Cook. The actual words, and even the context, of the famous "quote" get butchered all the time. That being said, I still believe no matter which version you go with, who wrote it or why they wrote it.... it holds true. "Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety." Or...... “Those who give up liberty for security deserve neither.” However, I don't hate anyone for preferring that security reign in situations like this. It's a terribly personal thing. I admit, I have never lost anyone to an attack like this. Enough babbling. Share your thoughts. Keep it civil. Keep your politics in your pocket, please!
