Re Tim Cook, Apple and the FedGov

Good for him

NRO agrees in “Hurray for Tim Cook,” and here’s the crux of it:

Tim Cook is the CEO of Apple, and Uncle Stupid is leaning on his company just at the moment, demanding that the firm create some specialized iPhone code — call it “FBiOS” — that will allow it to crack the mobile phone used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists. Which is to say, with all of the power and money and other resources we put into national security, law enforcement, and counterterrorism, the Men in Black cannot defeat some yahoo’s iPhone PIN.

No shit.

Also, my favorite YouTube homesteader, WranglerStar says so too.

And so say I.
