Apple vs. The Big Bad Wolf

Yes, I am oversimplifying things with the title above. And yes, there are always two sides to every story. But no, I don't honestly know where I stand on this issue yet.


Okay, here's what's at Stake



Me and my iPhone

(Not me per se, but you understand)





 VS.






The United States Department of Justice










And the winner will be --- Absolutely No One!


Here's why:

  • The DOJ needs Apple's help to get into the cell phone from one of the San Bernadino Shooter's iPhones.

  • Apple does not want to open Pandora's Box.

I'm sure they both have compelling reasons. But this case is a no win!


If Apple "unlocks" the Phone

It will be seen as a defeat for personal privacy by many. Big Brother now has the precedent (and know how) to invade all of our lives at any time they wish.

If the DOJ doesn't get in the Terrorist's Phone

We may never know what they knew. And we may never find out if other sleeper cells have similar activities planned.


Or, we may just find that this guy had an awesome score on Candy Crush, or something like that.


You can see both sides of the argument. Privacy vs. Saftey. The average US citizen vs. Big Government.

No one wins here, folks. I just wish they would have handled this behind the scenes and worked something out. Yes, in this case, treat us like mushrooms: in the dark and covered with crap.

After all, that's what large companies and the government do every day, isn't it?!


Until next time, hang in there.
