Apple Refuses To Unlock Terrorist's iPhone For The Government — See Why They Won't Comply With The 'Dangerous' Court Order!

| Filed under: Legal MattersTech TalkProtectionViral: News

Apple isn't on the best terms with Uncle Sam right now!

The tech company said it would oppose and challenge a federal court order to help the FBI unlock an iPhone used by one of the terrorists behind the San Bernardino mass shooting last December.

On Tuesday, Federal District Court Judge Sheri Pym ordered Apple to bypass the security on an iPhone 5 operated by Syed Rizwan Farook — who was killed by the police with his wife after murdering 14 of his co-workers at a holiday party.

In hopes of obtaining more evidence in the investigation, the Judge ordered the company to create special software that would basically act as a skeleton key to unlock the phone — but Apple refused!

Hours later, Apple exec Tim Cook released a statement saying that the company would not comply with the order because the technology would be "too dangerous to create."

The FBI says its experts have failed to access the data on Farook's iPhone, and are at risk of losing the data forever after repeated unsuccessful attempts to enter the password — which means that only Apple is able to get around its security features.

But according to Cook, what the government is asking the company to do "has implications far beyond the legal case at hand." He wrote:

"The F.B.I. may use different words to describe this tool, but make no mistake: Building a version of iOS that bypasses security in this way would undeniably create a back door. And while the government may argue that its use would be limited to this case, there is no way to guarantee such control."

Back in 2014, Apple and Google announced they tightened up their software with "full disk" encryption — which means their security was so beefed up, they could no longer unlock their own products!

But this re-engineering created a problem for law enforcement authorities, who say the new encryption hinders them from preventing and solving crime.

While police and prosecutors believe that creating a master key will be extremely useful when investigating crimes, Cook says that creating a "back door" to bypass their security is:

"Something we simply do not have, and something we consider too dangerous to create."

The tech company's next step will likely be to file an appeal — and since the legal issues here are complicated, this case could go all the way up to the Supreme Court.

ICYMI: Lammy was found unresponsive last Tuesday after partaking in a particularly troubling binge which resulted in him going into a coma and being hospitalized at the Sunrise Hospital in Sin City.

Apparently, the call girl and her co-worker Ryder Cherry fled the famous brothel after news broke of the NBA great's medical condition. The pair previously refused to elaborate about their romp with L.O. — who supposedly requested their presence at least six times a day.

Puppy Farming Outlawed In Ireland

| Filed under: Legal MattersPuppyDogProtectionAnimal Cruelty

As of New Year's Day, puppy farming is now illegal in Ireland.

The government enacted two new laws, hoping to protect doggies all over the island.

They are the Welfare of Greyhounds Act and the Dogs Breeding Establishments Act.

The laws will control breeders and make sure dogs are taken proper care of.

Ireland was once known as the puppy farm capital of Europe, and now, if any breeder does anything less than humane to a dog, they will face severe penalties.

What a great puppy saving law.

Everywhere should take a page out of their book.

Japan Plans Winter Whale Genocide Hunt

| Filed under: ProtectionWhales

Japan whale hunters

Japan has said that it still plans to slaughter hunt whales this winter, despite pleas from activists everywhere.

They say they are doing "research" so nothing illegal is going on but anti-whaling activists say the whale meat ends up being sold to restaurants.

The Japanese killed almost 200 whales in just the South Ocean last season.

The Japanese have hired an agency to guard their whaling vessels during the hunt, but the anti-whalers are ready for a fight, saying:

"They will have to kill us to prevent us from intervening once again. … We will undertake whatever risks to our lives will be required to stop this invasion of arrogant greed into what is an established sanctuary for the whales."

That's what we like to hear! Save the whales!

“I am delighted to back Butterfly Conservation and their efforts to ensure that these wonderful insects are conserved for future generations to enjoy,”
