Will Apple ever answer its iPhone security questions?

Some people simply have to have the latest phone – teenagers, techno-hipsters, app developers, those utterly devoted to tasting every Apple product. Even some in law enforcement or those intent on keeping secrets (looking at you, Hillary Clinton).
So when

Teacher Uses Bruised Apple To Show Devastating Effects Of Bullying

One woman found an incredibly way to teach a crucial lesson. 

Rosie Dutton of Relax Kids, a U.K.-based company that deals with kids’ mindfulness and relaxation, teaches a weekly class for 10- and 11-year-olds. During a recent class, Dutton used apples to brilliantly illustrate the point that the effects of bullying aren’t always so conspicuous. 

The coach, who documented the lesson in a now-viral Facebook post, started out by showing the class two typical, perfect-looking apples. But unbeknownst to the students, she had dropped one of the apples repeatedly on the floor. She picked up the dropped apple and began insulting it.

Steve Wozniak Apple co-founder says cyber crime is world’s greatest threat

3317744-3x2-700x467

Apple co-founder and engineering genius Steve Wozniak has hit out at the FBI’s attempts to force the tech giant to unlock an iPhone that belonged to a terrorist.

Mr Wozniak, known as The Woz, told Lateline that cyber crime was the greatest threat the world faced and he likened it to the cold war nuclear hysteria of his childhood.

“We used to fear the atomic bomb when I was young, and you used to come home from school and sirens would go off for a test on every corner,” he said.

“Now we fear all the cyber attacks and hacking. What’s the next one we’re going to hear about?

“Is one going to come close to me? Is it going to hit me? Could they really take out our electrical system, take out our internet, how far can it go? And it’s getting worse and worse year by year, not better and better.”

FBI case is an attack on security, Wozniak says

Mr Wozniak said it was wrong for the US government to try to order Apple to unlock the phone used by one of the San Bernardino shooters

“What if the FBI was able to go to any company, any time they felt like it and said you have to build a product our way? I don’t think that’s right,” he said.
“What if the FBI can’t get into a phone? They’ve still got all the records in this recent case, they’ve still got all the records from the phone company — of every communication that was made, of every SMS message that was sent.”
The Woz, who built Apple’s first two computers with Steve Jobs in the 1970s, said society had almost reached a point where privacy no longer existed.

“I mean cameras everywhere, our credit card and almost every action we take and where we go, we pretty much acknowledged to have given up a lot of that,” he said.
“[People] have a right to private things, I’ve a right to private thoughts too. I don’t want somebody knowing how I feel about certain things, that’s who I am and we’ve got to retain a bit of our humanness.”
Wozniak doesn’t believe in limiting screen time

Mr Wozniak, who was a star maths student, spent part of his career teaching young children about computers and he said the key was to let them have fun with it.

He said he would never limit a child’s screen time, although he admitted he was probably in the minority on that point.

“I would never tell a kid to get off their phones, any kid doing anything technical, addicted to a computer, addicted to a game. No,” he said.
“Let them find themselves in the world. Don’t force your values on them.”
But Mr Wozniak said he would not be buying his new granddaughter her first computer, though he expected her parents would probably get her an iPad in a couple of years’ time.

A giant of the tech world

The Woz left his role as vice-president of research and development at Apple in the 1980s and sold most of his shares, but he is still an employee of the company and receives an annual salary.

He remains a giant of the tech industry, having founded numerous other companies since his Apple days, and he is an Adjunct Professor at the University of Technology, Sydney’s Engineering and IT faculty.

Mr Wozniak said once his work commitments reduced, he would like to move to Sydney, where his son and his family live.

“Right now I have a type of life that is constantly travelling … if I didn’t have that life I would have a residence here (Sydney),” he said.
“My son though has moved here, he’s an Australian and my first granddaughter is here in Sydney, three months old and she’s an Australian and American.”

Apple might not find out how the FBI hacked the San Bernardino iPhone

160301-fbi-comey-100647907-large

The strange tale of the San Bernardino iPhone seems like it’s almost over, although it touched off a national debate about encryption that’s just getting started. Apple probably won’t find out what method was used by the third-party firm that broke into the iPhone 5c used by shooter Syed Rizwan Farook, reports Reuters.

The government says that the unidentified international firm that did the hack has legal ownership of the method, so while the FBI got the data it wanted, it’s unable to disclose the method to Apple. There’s actually a system in place, known as the Vulnerabilities Equities Process, that’s designed to evaluate flaws discovered by the government’s own agencies to determine if they should be disclosed to the technology companies who can patch them, or if the vulnerabilities can remain secret to be used by the NSA, FBI, or other agencies.

But in this case, the FBI says it doesn’t even know enough about the method to be able to submit it for evaluation. The firm that “owns” the hack is free to keep it secret and sell it to anyone—government or criminal alike.

As recently as last week, FBI Director James Comey made it sound like the bureau was still weighing its options about disclosing the flaw to Apple, not that it was technologically or legally prohibited from doing so. Speaking at Kenyon College on April 6, Comey said, “If we tell Apple, they’re going to fix it and we’re back where we started. As silly as it may sound, we may end up there. We just haven’t decided yet.”

The other piece of bad news in this case: A source in law enforcement told CBS News that the San Bernardino iPhone hasn’t produced useful evidence so far, although they aren’t done analyzing all the data. You may recall that the iPhone 5c in question was provided by Farook’s employer, San Bernardino County, and he also had a personal cell phone that he destroyed prior to committing the crime. Farook and his wife and co-conspirator Tashfeen Malik were killed in a gunfight with law enforcement after murdering 14 people and seriously wounding 22.
