This is getting funny.
Common Software Would Have Let FBI Unlock Shooter’s iPhone
The county government that owned the iPhone in a high-profile legal battle between Apple Inc. and the Justice Department paid for but never installed a feature that would have allowed the FBI to easily and immediately unlock the phone as part of the terrorism investigation into the shootings that killed 14 people in San Bernardino, California.
If the technology, known as mobile device management, had been installed, San Bernardino officials would have been able to remotely unlock the iPhone for the FBI without the theatrics of a court battle that is now pitting digital privacy rights against national security concerns.
So the county was paying for a service that would have gotten the FBI into the phone and cloud, but never bothered installing it. Instead, they screwed up and reset the cloud password, locking themselves out of what they want. Then they went to a federal judge and lied about how it happened.
And the judge ordered Apple to fix everyone else’s mistakes.
