Tim Cook: FBI fight is about a responsibility to help you protect your data

Tim Cook took today’s Apple event as a chance to strike back at government demands that the company break security measures on a phone used in the San Bernardino attack. “We built the iPhone for you, our customers,” Cook told the crowd. “We need to decide, as a nation, how much power the government should have over our data and our privacy.”

“We did not expect to be in this position, at odds with our own government,” he continued, “but we believe strongly that we have a responsibility to help you protect your data and your privacy.”
