No Surprise:
MORE Orders For Apple To Hack iPhones


So much for the 'just this one iPhone' rhetoric, as predicted:

Justice Department Seeks to Force Apple to Extract Data From About 12 Other iPhones
The Justice Department is pursuing court orders to force Apple Inc. to help investigators extract data from iPhones in about a dozen undisclosed cases around the country, in disputes similar to the current battle over a terrorist's locked phone, according to people familiar with the matter. . . .

Separately, federal prosecutors in New York are sparring with Apple over an iPhone seized in a drug investigation there. In that case, prosecutors filed a letter with U.S. magistrate judge James Orenstein late Monday that indicates there are other cases in which the government has obtained similar court orders, but the letter does not provide further detail. . . .

"The government suggests this tool could only be used once, on one phone. But that's simply not true," Apple CEO Tim Cook wrote last week in a letter to customers. "Once created, the technique could be used over and over again, on any number of devices... The government is asking Apple to hack our own users and undermine decades of security advancements."

The obvious result.

Stick with it Tim Cook and Apple!

Pay no attention to the man with the red tie...
