"We will not shrink from this responsibility."
That's how Apple CEO Tim Cook started today's live "Loop You In" event, with a message about privacy, security and encryption. Cook said that Apple has a responsibility to protect its customers' data, noting that many people view their mobile devices as extensions of themselves.
His words were aimed at the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Apple has consistently and publicly refused the FBI's order to unlock the iPhone 5c used by one of the shooters in last December's San Bernardino terrorist attack. The FBI and Apple are locked in a legal battle over the issue.
