Google and Verizon side with Apple against FBI, John Kasich wants Obama to lock Tim Cook in a room

Google and Verizon side with Apple against FBI, John Kasich wants Obama to lock Tim Cook in a room

After Apple filed a a motion with U.S. Magistrate Judge Sheri Pym, asking the court to vacate the order compelling it to hand over certain information to the government, it saw the most prominent names in tech siding with it. Google, Microsoft, Facebook, and even Twitter or Verizon want to file amicus briefs towards that same Apple motion, expressing their agreement with Apple's First Amendment defense

These are some of the world's richest and brightest companies pooling resources together, so the FBI would have a steep hill to climb if it wants a free-range back door hack to iPhones in a legal way.

Meanwhile, in the next installment of presidential wannabes commenting on the clash between Apple and the FBI, the Republican debate last night turned for the bizarre when John Kasich said Obama should lock Tim Cook and the Feds in a room, and intervene until a deal is hammered out. Oh, well, it did get funnier than that afterwards, but no apples were involved in the following exchange.

I wouldn't mind if they waterboarded Cook for just a little bit, but still I'd hope that he doesn't give up and snitch because that would be bad for everyone, even the Android crowd. And besides I'd like to say that at the end of the day he is a courageous man and nothing less.

I hate BOTH Obama AND Apple.
They both need to be locked in a room to never be seen again.

The presidential election is turning out to look like the movie idiocracy

I don't know about that. An idiot isn't deliberative in their destructive actions. It would be unwise to presume someone like Trump or a Cruz doesn't understand the implications of their policies and positions.

The real cause for concern are the idiots who support them.

And they are all apple's users and fans. The 51% agreeing to fbi are Android.

Banned Apple. America does not need a company who is getting funded by terrorist.

Well, hopefully soon you get banned, and precious bandwidth that your ridiculously unintelligible and pretty dumb comments fade away into the obscurity of the internet. You sound just as dumb as Donald Trump and your comments confirm you know nothing about software or cyber security, just like Donald Trump.

It goes much farther and deeper then what may be on that terrorist's 5C. China and Russia are literally praying and begging on their knees right now Apple is forced to do this, why? Because if Apple is forced to do this, Russia and China now are able to get intel on almost every American citizen and that is a huge national security threat in itself.

Backdoor in software is NEVER a good idea and even if Apple does "Delete and destroy the software" they created to get into the device if they are forced too, the methodology behind it will still be on file somewhere and that is all some people need to get going with this.

America needs patriotism. I salute Donald, and kick out Obama.

We are the British Empire.

Your opinions from here on out are invalid on everything. To salute Donald is suicide

To not salute Donald will cause America to be infested by illegal immigrants and abolish terrorism.

We are the British Empire along with America, we rule the world. We have mighty powers.

You need to get out of america. Cause you don't even know the liberty. And why the statue of liberty is made for which symbolizes america.
You have shown how racist you are towards your countrymen. And to risk freedom for security. And to be monitored by the government is like having a life of dictatorship from which everything that is recorded on your phone. From bank accounts, to social security no., to every important files that should have been kept secret to the entire world is revealed. Is that what you wanted with your life?

These animals are NOT our "countrymen", or even men. Men WORK, pay TAXES, raise their CHILDREN and are not a violent animals that rob, rape, and kill on a daily basis. Those that you call racists are not the problem, they are the solution.

If Trump was a good choice for the well-being of the American people, he would be dead by now. Just saying, knowing the modus operandi of the government. Not the REAL government, mind you...

"It would be unwise to presume someone like Trump or a Cruz doesn't understand the implications of their policies and positions."

They don't understand. Cruz is an idiot. He shouldn't even be in the race because he isn't even a born citizen of the USA. all the frack Obama got simply for being black and here this man isn't getting any, except from trump.

If trump wins the election and gets into the White House, all the hard work the USA has had to do to get back on its feet the last 8 years, with the things Obama could do, where he received NO HELP from the idiots in Congress and members of his own party, again simply because he is black; the USS is going to fall on its face.

Trump and most idiot from Europe are just like him. A bunch of selfish, greedy, racist, sexist; human beings.

A Republican will NEVER EVER get my support, even if and when they are right.

"If people are being made unemployed, the question of immigration becomes extremely thorny. It's been too easy to get into this country in the past and it's going to get harder." UK.

Labour has ruined United Kingdom.
Salute and respect "conservative: Marget Thatcher".

He is not black, he is half black. Why can't peon call him for what he is mixed race.
But still can't stand the man. He has done nothing but hurt this country.

I honestly am shocked, appalled, and terrified that one of these people could become President. Trying to solve a nation's problems by yelling as loudly as you can is the strategy a toddler should be using, not a President.

Politics attracts the worst among we the people. The presidency attracts the psychopaths among we the people.

None of these candidates understand a lick of anything about software or computers or cyber security. They are all extremely technologically illiterate, America is quite behind in technological leadership
