Apple vs. the FBI: all the news on the battle for encryption's future

This is an interesting debate. My wife is on the side of the FBI. Personally, I fall on the side of Apple. Sorta. 

Now, my understanding of this is: the FBI wants Apple to give them an "in-house" tool to use to access the particular IPhone the terrorists used in San Bernardino. Now, on one side I completely agree with that. But, when I look at the 'whole picture" I just cannot get past the issue that it will not stay "in-house" and the hackers will get it and use it. 

Here's what I propose: Apple takes the phone to a top secret room. They crack it. They keep the software "in-house" (maybe in the new spaceship they are building in Sunnyvale, CA). They hand the data over and destroy the software. See...easy! 

A judge has ordered Apple to comply with an FBI demand to unlock a phone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters, but the company has vowed to fight the decision, with Tim Cook calling the order "an unprecedented step which threatens the security of our customers." The battle could determine the future of encryption. Stay up to date here as news develops.
