John Oliver explains why he supports Apple over the FBI on encryption
For those who haven't been paying attention, Apple and the FBI are currently in a fight over encryption on iPhones. To summarize: the FBI wants access to the San Bernardino shooter's iPhone, but needs Apple to create a "back door," to do so, which could then theoretically be used to access every iPhone. Unfortunately, it's not as simple as giving the FBI a one-time key to one mass murderer's iPhone.
Basically, it amounts to opening up a can of worms far worse than the possibility that criminals will have protected communication with each other, which they'll just be able to do via a thousand other apps that the FBI can't control anyway. It could also compromise Apple's devices' security that much more in a world full of hackers looking for ways to exploit it.
Oliver explains this more eloquently than I can (and makes fun of that "rose gold" iPhone, which is worth the price of admission), so watch his 18-minute-long version below:
