Podcast 497: Calmly discussing FBI vs. Apple
Glenn and Susie update you on Judge Orenstein's ruling and other happenings, and confess our high expectations for the next iPhone and iPad announcement.
In the week since our last podcast, a cathartic session with security expert and our friend Rich Mogull, Apple’s tiff with the FBI has been boiling away. Apple’s filed a motion to dismiss the order, got a small victory in a different but related case in New York, and as we sat down to record, the company’s chief counsel and senior VP, Bruce Sewell, was sitting down in front of the House Judiciary Committee.
So there’s plenty more to obsess over in this story, but that’s not the only thing we have to discuss. We also follow up on why that weird Error 53 message was so cryptic, and our expectations for the next Apple event.
