Trump calls for boycott of Apple
GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has somehow caught on among the electorate by saying outrageous things, and promoting a platform that is far more fluff than substance. With Apple refusing to abide by a court order to build a version of iOS that would unlock a terrorist's Apple iPhone 5c, Trump has called for his followers to boycott Apple.

The real estate tycoon says that he has already stopped using his iPhone. "I use both iPhone & Samsung. If Apple doesn’t give info to authorities on the terrorists I’ll only be using Samsung until they give info," he said. Apple's response indicates that the company is not worried about Trump. "Trump’s call for Apple boycott puts the company in standing with other good people he has criticized," said an Apple executive. Keep in mind that a number of well-heeled tech executives applauded Apple for its stance, including Mark Cuban, an outspoken billionaire in his own right.

"I use both iPhone & Samsung. If Apple doesn’t give info to authorities on the terrorists I’ll only be using Samsung until they give info.

Hopefully others will follow suit. Our country needs & should demand security. It is time to get tough & be smart!

Boycott all Apple products until such time as Apple gives cellphone info to authorities regarding radical Islamic terrorist couple from Cal"-Donald Trump

Despite his call to boycott Apple, Trump's official campaign store inside the North Charleston Convention Center continues to ring up Trump shirts and other Trump branded merchandise with the use of ten Apple iPads. Can you say hypocrite boys and girls?

Check out the exact moment that Trump decided to boycott Apple by clicking on the video below.

Calls for boycott on Twitter, Twitter are supporting Apple/encryption

If he was to boycott Apple, what would he use?
Google, Microsoft and BlackBerry are supporting Apple/encryption

Sorry all I going to say about this is in this case Apple is wrong

If I asked Apple to unlock my phone and I am the owner of the phone, it be 100% OK to do so

Now in this case Apple is being asked to unlock the iPhone 5c by the owner of the phone, and it is right for Apple to do so in this case and trump is right to say so

Now if the owner was not asking for the unlock I have a problem!!!!!!

According to Apple iOS 8 and above they can't get into.. If you brought your own iPhone in to get apple to unlock.. They wouldn't be able to help you.

The problem is 24 hours after the FBI took that IPhone 5c, the Apple ID changed.. Meaning someone was able to get in there and change the settings.. The FBI has so far flatly refused 4 alternative ways Apple has said the FBI could get the information, they are looking for..

What they are wanting.. Is a back door, a master key that would put every iOS device in risk of being hacked by anyone.

Back doors are so easy to get into.

But.... But..... Google is supporting Apple for this, which mean indirectly it's affect Samsung too!(Not too sure for this.... But still....) And I believe BlackBerry would do the same thing, so now all it's left is Microsoft, would Trump used a Lumia Phone? I don't think so.

Apple is in trouble now.If they unlock that iPhone privacy of several other iPhones can be sacrificed but if they don't the government is going to be after them, maybe increase the tax on their products or anything that would piss apple..
I'm with Apple on this that privacy of customers should not be sacrificed, but they have a major problem now.

You flood every article (regardless of what it is), with anti Apple rhetoric. We know you hate Apple, but you really come off as a little bitch looking for attention. Just like TechieXP, if you hate Apple that much, why continue posting it here, to people that can't care less.

The strongest impact is with your wallet, running your mouth here makes you look like a....well, ya know.

Yeah mr Trump, i will feel much more secure if goverments will have a way to broke into any iOS device on the planet, basicaly the only secure platform on earth.
So breaking security means more security to Trump ?

"Doesn't give info to authorities."
There is no authority above the right for privacy, or better said it shouldn't be.

@S.R.K Donald might be a mentor for rich white blonde Americans who also happen to be atheists...

But for the rest of the world, he's a THREAT to global peace including America's... Remember African Americans???

I quote: "I'm with Donald"...

Well, ISIS recruited about 100 or so people just because of this quacking Darn Duckling you're supporting...

That moron, if it (not 'he') makes it to the throne (which means White House, you do know what White House is, do you 3rd Grader?), and does what it plans on doing then it'll surely polarize America from the rest of the world...

Look at the bigger picture, little one...

And not to mention, Apple is probably coughing out BILLIONS in taxes... Now, please don't ask what 'taxes' means...

And G'day!

Trump has the mentality of a third grader, but America has one of the worst education systems in the industrial world so most of his supporters barely even have a third grade education.
