If you’ve ever watched John Oliver’s Last Week Tonight you know that he’s often snarky, often over-the-top, but also pretty insightful on any point he tackles. In his latest episode John Oliver covers the FBI’s ongoing fight with Apple over unlocking the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone 5c.
The issue is really not about Apple refusing to help the government go after terrorists – that’s an overly-simplistic and completely unrealistic analysis of this situation. His analysis of the situation breaks through the rhetoric (including Donald Trump’s less tan insightful comments) and explains what’s really going on.
If you enjoy John Oliver this video is definitely worth a look. And if you’ve heard of him before, take the time to watch this and his other videos on YouTube. He’s seriously one of the most intelligent and well spoken people on the internet, and one of the funniest – if you’re into that sort of thing.
We’d love to hear what you have to say about this issue, especially how it relates to internet security and web design in general.
