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.

FBI Tracks Pirated The Hateful Eight Movie Leak To A Top Hollywood Exec!

no title

In case you hadn't heard, The Hateful Eight suffered a second major leak this week.

After an early draft of the script hit the 'net in early 2014, Quentin Tarantino almost canned the entire project.

But he persevered and went on to rewrite and rewrite and eventually made a big damn 70mm western. And now, just days before its limited Christmas Day release, that has leaked online as well!

This time, however, The Weinstein Company and no less than the Federal Bureau of Investigation had QT's back, and they've already traced the pirated copy to a studio executive!

President Obama Makes Official Statement On 'Possible Terrorist-Related' San Bernardino Shooting

Filed under: PolitikBarack ObamaViolenceViral: News

The mass shooting at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, CA on Wednesday that claimed the lives of 14 people was one of the worst in recent memory.

But was it an act of terrorism?

In a new statement, President Barack Obama said it "was possible this was terrorist-related" but stressed the FBI investigation has just begun. He stated bluntly:

"We don't know why they did it. We don't know the extent of their plans. We don't know their motivations."

He also allowed the possibility that the shooting was "workplace-related" since one of the slain suspects was a former Health Department employee.

Two suspects are dead after a shootout in San Bernardino on Wednesday.

During a press conference, Police Chief Jarrod Burguan revealed that one male and one female believed to be involved with the Inland Regional Center attack have been killed.

The supposed shooters were first tracked down in the nearby city of Redlands, California. Authorities chased them down once they drove off in a dark-colored SUV.

He mentioned that a third person was spotted running away from the scene, but that individual has been taken in to custody.

However, he's not sure if the person-in-question is actually involved with the San Bernardino tragedy.

Michael Lohan's Ex Kate Major Arrested After Threatening To Slit A Passenger's Throat Mid-Flight

This was one frightening flight.

It doesn't sound like Kate Major had a very happy Thanksgiving.

Last week — the day before Turkey Day — Lindsay Lohan's father's ex was on a Jetblue flight from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Los Angeles.

But now, new information is circulating about the dramatic details.

According to an FBI agent, the 33-year-old seemed to be drunk when she boarded the plane, and only got more rambunctious once the flight was underway.

The agent explained that Michael Lohan's estranged wife "immediately became disruptive" when a flight attendant asked her to put her seat upright during takeoff.

And once they were about 10,000 feet in the air, multiple passengers claimed they heard and saw the Illinois native making threats at the person sitting next to her, calling her seatmate's wife "a bitch," and even threatening to "slit her throat."

Yikes.

It was so bad, in fact, that Jetblue employees moved the momma-of-two's seat so the captain could watch her during the trip.

But the drama wasn't over.

New ISIS Propaganda Video Includes Shots Of Times Square

Filed under: ViolenceScary!NewsViral: News

Police say there is no specific threat.

ISIS has released a new propaganda video that references New York City.

The clip began circulating the internet on Wednesday, showing footage of what appears to be a suicide bomber constructing an explosive for a belt.

Shots of Times Square are spliced in-between those of a faceless individual building a suicide belt. The footage shows taxis, crowds, and notable NYC storefronts.

The video did NOT show a bomber or radicalist in the city itself. But the clip did include video of French President François Hollande speaking after last week's tragic Paris attacks.

NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Public Information Stephen Davis acknowledges that this appears to be a threat towards the Big Apple, saying in a statement:

"While some of the video footage is not new, the video reaffirms the message that New York City remains a top terrorist target."

He made it clear that the police are treating the matter incredibly seriously, even though there is no word of any immediate threat, continuing:
