As most of you know, the case against Apple to force them to help the government hack the dead terrorist’s iPhone has been dropped, as the government was aided by “a third party” and were able to gain access to the phone.
This morning while listening to NPR on my way to work some tech analyst said that the government had an obligation to tell Apple how it hacked the iPhone, so that Apple could correct the vulnerability and make the iPhone safer from hacking.
I disagree. It is not the government’s obligation to assist corporations in making their products better. If you believe that government should do this, should it then take on the responsibility of pointing out the Android’s vulnerabilities as well?
