Bill Gates denies iPhone crack demand would set precedent

Well there it is.

Bill had earned quite a bit of my respect for his humanitarian works since handing over the reigns to Microsoft. He just lost most of it.

First, if he were actually paying attention he'd know that Apple handed over everything they actually had (basically what was in that phone's iCloud account) months ago. What the FBI is asking for IS a backdoor.

Second the fact that he says Apple should give it to them indicates to me that he would. Which, given that he still has his fingers in Microsofts business, is scary.
