To be clear: there’s plenty of blame to go around. Apple probably* could have avoided this if they loosened up, but it seems like the DOJ case is trying to prosecute something other than what was stated.

*I say probably because politics is weird and tech is clearly in politicians' sights

My hot take on US v Apple: the accusations in this case may feel right, but the legal case here is tenuous at best. If Congress would like to pass some laws to codify feelings, go for it.

As of now, we live in a nation governed by laws. Pretty tough to prosecute an entity that doesn’t violate them
