What’s Going on With Apple and the FBI?

Apple has publicly responded to a court order brought on by the FBI and US government asking them to purposefully break into one of their devices. There’s been a lot written on this subject today, so I’ve rounded-up what I think are the must reads after the jump.

The implications of the government’s demands are chilling. If the government can use the All Writs Act to make it easier to unlock your iPhone, it would have the power to reach into anyone’s device to capture their data. The government could extend this breach of privacy and demand that Apple build surveillance software to intercept your messages, access your health records or financial data, track your location, or even access your phone’s microphone or camera without your knowledge.

The Godfather Epic

HBO is currently running a 7-hour long chronological version of The Godfather. You can catch it on their on demand services. If you haven’t seen the movies before this should not be the way you watch them for the first time, but for committed fans this is an interesting cut of the films.
