SAN FRANCISCO — Apple said on Wednesday that it would oppose and challenge a federal court order to help the F.B.I. unlock an iPhone used by one of the two attackers who killed 14 people in San Bernardino, Calif., in December. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/18/technology/apple-timothy-cook-fbi-san-bernardino.html?_r=0 I am trying to figure this out and a couple of things could be happening. Tim Cook is trying to look like a martyr for privacy rights, but it's a battle he won't win. If he doesn't comply with the federal court order, he could be thrown in jail for contempt of court. and/or The FBI already knows how to hack the phone and wanted this reaction from Tim Cook, so attackers will continue to use or increase their use of his phone since they know how to hack it. Tim Cook also needs to realize that an intelligent service could covertly offer one of his employees a couple of million dollars to add a hidden script to the OS so there is a backdoor.
