Stop Drinking Bottled Water

There are few things on this planet I hate more than bottled water. Just the crinkling sound of someone wrapping their mouth around one of those squeaky garbage accordions fills me with rage. I stopped drinking it a long time agoā€”and you should stop drinking it, too.

Protest group seeks ā€œthousandsā€ of pro-encryption comments to display outside Apple/FBI court hearing

Fight for the Future, the protest group that organizedĀ demonstrations in support of Apple outside its retail stores, plans to hold a demonstration outside the next Apple/FBI court hearing on March 22nd.Ā Re/code reports that the group has created a website inviting people to voice their support for secure iPhones, comments from which will be displayed outside theĀ U.S. District Courthouse in Riverside, California.

The FBI wants to force Apple to weaken the security measures that keep all of us safe. This is misguided, and dangerous. On March 22, when Apple goes to court, weā€™ll display thousands of statements from Internet users outside the courthouse.

Fight for the Future has so far had mixed success with its protests …

U.S. Attorney General argues San Bernardino County is the owner of the iPhone, Apple should help ā€˜the customerā€™ [Video]

In an interview onĀ The Late Show,Ā U.S. Attorney GeneralĀ Loretta Lynch told Stephen Colbert that the government in the San Bernardino case simply wants Apple to help a customer.

What we’re asking [Apple] to do is to do what the customer wants. The real owner of the phone is the County, the employer of one of the terrorists who is now dead.

Will Apple stick to business as usual later this month at its press event for the new iPhone SE, Apple Watch, and Mac updates? Or will it use the very public stage to also address the ongoing FBI/San Bernardino/encryption controversy?

WSJ/NBC poll shows public support for Appleā€™s side of FBI battle growing, now close to even split

While an earlier public poll showed the majority of the public siding with the FBI in the dispute over whether Apple should be forced to help the government break into an iPhone, the public mood appears toĀ be shifting. AĀ WSJ/NBC poll shows that, overall, American voters are now almost evenly split on the issue.

Neither theĀ WSJ norĀ NBC has yet released the full poll ā€“ only the results relating to the Republican primary race ā€“ butĀ CNETĀ has reported the numbers.

Overall, American voters are evenly divided over whether Apple should cooperate with FBI efforts to crack open a terrorist’s iPhone.

47 percent said they feared the government wouldn’t go far enough in protecting national security, while 44 percent feared it would intrude too far into citizens’ privacy.

As you’d expect, there was a significant difference in views among registered Republicans and Democrats …

Steve Wozniak says the FBI ā€œpicked the lamest case you ever couldā€ [Video]

Appearing on Conan last night,Ā Woz said that he sided with Apple in the FBI fight, first because he’s always been strong on human rights, as one of the founders of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, but because governments shouldn’t be able to tell manufacturers to make their products insecure at a time when security is so important.

He argued that there is absolutely no reason to think the FBI would learn anything from the iPhone in question.

They picked a lame case. They picked the lamest case you ever could […]

[For the shooters’ own phones]Ā Verizon turned over all the phone records, all the SMS messages. So they want to take this other phone, that the two didn’t destroy, which was a work phone, and it’s so lame and worthless to expect something’s on it and getĀ Apple to expose it.

Revealing that he had once written something that could have acted as a Macintosh virus, he said he’d thrown away every line of code because he was so scared of what might happen if the code got out …

While most politicians have come down on the side of the FBI,Ā BloombergĀ reports Hillary Clinton is an exception. Not that she’s on Apple’s side: from her remarks, she doesn’t know whose side she’s on, she just wants there to be a solution but has no idea what it should be.
