February 18, 2016 The Washington Post

Timothy Edgar comments on Apple's refusal to help the FBI access encrypted data on the iPhone of one of the gunmen from the December 2014 San Bernadino attack. "The government wants to lay down a marker here that companies do have to provide assistance when they can. And Apple is saying, ‘We don’t want to have to hack our own customers.’ The outcome of the case is going to be hugely important for the balance between privacy and security."
