    So incredibly ridiculous. Law enforcement can order all they want, but math is math and most of the widely used encryption algorithms can't be broken within a human lifetime.

    Also if Apple is able to use some "back door" it would set a very dangerous precedent for other cases.

    They might possibly turn off the auto wipe after failed login attempts so that many combinations can be tried.

    They should just ship it to me, I could brick that thing in about 18 mins -- which oddly, is about the missing time frame they are trying to recover from the phone.

    18 minutes? Nixon had 18 1/2 minutes missing from his White House Watergate tapes.... Some guy was running a program on the blank tape section trying to "build-up" the signal. It was running for 5 years when I read the article.... 20 years ago...

    So Apple was ordered to implement a backdoor into their operating system. Cook has so far rejected. Even though the backdoor was "only" to make it possible to start brute-forcing the system by removing the limitations (number of tries, delays between tries) for password checks. Google finally came out and supported Cook in this. Because if Apple really is forced to do this then the operating system is not secure anymore, and that's why Cook rejects the idea. It would backfire on Apple and thus on US industry - it's not that there aren't doubts about other operating systems and environments, far from it, but when it's a certainty that a known OS is broken then that makes it easy for customers to move away, if they care.
