I started a new thread as this one was getting too long and I wanted to give TomsTXCHL a fresh pallette with which to trash me personally.

See viewtopic.php?f=94&t=83351
Okay, consider yourself trashed! :tiphat:

Log-in B appears as normal but only accesses the specific content I have designated, meaning specific messages, pictures, call records, contacts, etc., can be designated to not show up when log-in B is used.

For the life of me, I can not figure out why this type of device is not offered.
The iPhone has a feature called restrictions that you can set a second passcode to access certain features.

For Apple, this isn't about privacy as many of their customers phones have been hacked by outside rats. Mine was one of them.

For Feds, this is about control and dominance in the big data spectrum.

Both parties are playing us for stupid.

Apple or Feds could hire a hacker, and with the use of botnet network generating up to 9 password guesses per second, they could have that phone cracked in under 20 minutes.

Again, they play the people for fools.

Notice also how that clerk in Kentucky got jailed for refusing judges order, yet Cook proudly rejects this judges order and nothing happens.
:headscratch
I would guess that the FBI has already hacked the phone and it doesn't have any useful information.

So when/if Apple hacks it they won't find any information either. And they can say - see we didn't evade any one's privacy. :shock:

I don't think they will try to jail Mr. Cook.

Re: This is why I will not own any Apple products!

It with be interesting to see what happens when the deadline is reached, i.e. if Apple is held in contempt and then what will happen.

I think the government position is to allow only them to have automatic decryption, while the rest of us must have semi-automatic. ;-)

There aren't very many. Most probably think too logically to be a good politician. :tiphat:
Among the 435 members of the House, for example, there are one physicist, one chemist, one microbiologist, six engineers and nearly two dozen representatives with medical training. The case of doctors and the body politic is telling. Everyone knows roughly what doctors do, and so those with medical backgrounds escape the anti-intellectual charge of irrelevance often thrown at those in the hard sciences. Witness Senator Bill Frist, Gov. Howard Dean and even Ron Paul.

Re: This is why I will not own any Apple products!

The court extended the deadline until February 26th.
The company’s response in court will be due Feb. 26 instead of Tuesday, said two people familiar with the timeline, who asked not to be identified because the matter wasn’t public. The federal magistrate who on Feb. 16 granted the Justice Department’s request for an order forcing Apple to help the FBI had given the company five business days to oppose her order.

McAfee went nuts awhile back. Framed for murder in Belize, but still whack-a-doo,
I have been reading up on him. He is a big time whack-a-doo. :iagree:

..and probably with a huge axe to grind against Apple. :reddevil
I don't know about that, but if I were the FBI there is no way I would even talk to the guy.

Apple built a bridge with a locked gate.

In the past, the .gov wrote court orders to force Apple to unlock the gate so they could cross the bridge. Apple learned from that so they didn't build a better gate, they burned the bridge.

So now they are writing a court order telling them to rebuild the bridge.
Android, I think your explanation is excellent.
Thank you for your post. :tiphat:
