A Poisoned Apple in the Garden of Liberty

Apple privacyApple, which invades your privacy by checking to see if you had a non–Apple repair on your phone, is now refusing to cooperate with the FBI on unlocking the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone.

In spite of all of Tim Cook’s “privacy” posturing, it’s not a privacy issue at all. San Bernardino County owns the phone and they, too want it unlocked.

Instead it’s all about market share.
