Bill Gates denies iPhone crack demand would set precedent



Do you really imagine that the NSA or GCHQ can't decrypt an iPhone? I mean REALLY?

If I were a cynical man I would suggest that this furor is just smoke and mirrors because in fact it only took them a matter of minutes (maybe hours) to crack the phone but they just don't want people (well terrorists) to know that this isn't a safe form of usage/storage anymore. Oh and they probably need a "Legal" way to get at the data so it can be used in a court.
