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

no title

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.

Kate Winslet Takes Home Best Supporting Actress At The 2016 BAFTA Awards!

Kate Winslet can add another BAFTA Award to her collection!

On Sunday, the blonde babe received the Best Supporting Actress honor at this year's ceremony, for her portrayal of original Apple executive Joanna Hoffman in Steve Jobs.

When the 40-year-old took the stage to claim the honor, she was overwhelmed but made sure to acknowledge her incredible competition in the category — Alicia Vikander (Ex Machina), Rooney Mara (Carol), Jennifer Jason Leigh (The Hateful Eight), and Julie Walters (Brooklyn). Of course Winslet also made sure to thank the filmmakers, her husband, her parents, and her children. Awww!

But this isn't the first time the gorgeous gal has taken home this trophy. The last time she won in a supporting role was 20 years ago, for her part in Sense and Sensibility!

In 2009, the UK Native also won for her leading role in The Reader.

Katy Perry's Mobile Game Is A Dud! Find Out Why Katy Perry Pop Isn't Taking Off!

no title

Not every celebrity can crash Apple's App Store like Kim Kardashian West!

Katy Perry tried her luck in the world of mobile gaming with the launch of her freemium game Katy Perry Pop!

However, the Firework songstress' game — in which her digital avatar guides wannabe singers to musical stardom — isn't taking off as big as expected!

This is the second celeb-themed game from Glu Mobile, which saw mega success after releasing the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game — but apparently gamers would rather learn to be reality stars than pop stars!

As of Monday afternoon, Katy Perry Pop was No. 54 on the free iPhone games in the App Store, and No. 117 on the Google Play chart!

The reviews aren't helping either. Users commented that the game is glitchy and crashes frequently, while others say it's a musical knock off of Kim's game!

Luckily, Katy-Kat is doing fine with or without a successful mobile game under her belt!

As for Katy Perry Pop, maybe the inevitable sequel won't be as big of a dud?

Adele Dethroned On iTunes By THIS The Voice Contestant's Star-Making Performance!

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteAdeleBusiness BlitzThe VoiceReality TV

Today is just not her day.

Prior to Tuesday, Adele was sitting pretty as the most untouchable person in all of the music industry.

However, after a scandal came forward suggesting the 27-year-old Brit plagiarized her song Million Years Ago, it looks as though another the mother-of-one just experienced another setback…

She no longer has the No. 1 song on iTunes!!!

Video: Watch Adele Perform Million Years Ago On Today!

Apparently, the contestant from The Voice whose blind audition of Sia's Chandelier went viral a few months ago just took the top spot on the Apple Music player!

His semifinal performance of Queen's Somebody to Love is just that good!

We didn't think Adele would get overthrown so soon, but we guess people really want to see Jordan Smith win Season 9 of the NBC Reality TV show.

Ch-ch-check out Jordan Smith's chart-topping rendition of Somebody to Love (below)!!!
