Bill Gates backs the U.S. government in Apple's iPhone privacy standoff
February 23, 2016 - Uncategorized
Microsoft founder Bill Gates says he supports the U.S. government in its efforts to unearth the contents of a terrorist’s iPhone, countering a trend by other tech leaders to back Apple’s refusal to code a backdoor into its iOS operating system.
Gates appears to have made the case, however, that he is in favor of the government’s request because he feels it is narrowly worded.
“This is a specific case where the government is asking for access to information,” Gates told the Financial Times in a story published Monday night Pacific time. “They are not asking for some general thing; they are asking for a particular case.”
