Fighting in Apple Inc's corner in court battle wth US Federal Bureau of Investigation are......

In the matter of the search of an Apple iPhone seized during the execution of a search warrant on a Black Lexus IS300, California license plate 35kgd203 and the demand that Apple Inc. create new software to break its own privacy safeguards and potentially its encryption codes, the IT world steps in to help.

Cnet, 9 March 2016:

The latest figure with an opinion on the fight between Apple and the FBI is none other than NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

His conclusion? The FBI's claim that only Apple can bypass the security of the iPhone used by a terrorist is bogus.

"The FBI says Apple has the 'exclusive technical means' of getting into this phone," Snowden said Tuesday.

Snowden called the claim malarky, without using such a polite term. "Respectfully, that's bulls***," he said.

The former National Security Agency contractor, who fled the US and lives in Russia, made the remarks while speaking via a video link from Moscow at advocacy group Common Cause's conference in Washington DC.
