Bill Gates Sides with FBI in Fight to Force Apple to Unlock iPhone of San Bernardino Shooter

Bill Gates is siding with the FBI in it battle to force Apple to help hack into a locked iPhone that belonged to one of the San Bernardino shooters.

In an interview with Financial Times, the Microsoft founder compared the case to police gathering records from a phone company as part of an investigation.

“This is a specific case where the government is asking for access to information. They are not asking for some general thing, they are asking for a particular case,” Gates said.

“It is no different than [the question of] should anybody ever have been able to tell the phone company to get information, should anybody be able to get at bank records. Let’s say the bank had tied a ribbon round the disk drive and said, ‘Don’t make me cut this ribbon because you’ll make me cut it many times’.”

Microsoft is the first major tech company to side with the FBI. Other tech companies, such as Facebook, Google and Twitter, have sided with Apple, saying the case would set a dangerous precedent of invading the privacy of tech users.
