FBI director admits mistake was made with San Bernadino iCloud reset

The judge ruled that an order forcing Apple to unlock the phone would exceed the government’s authority under the law, and that any other interpretation of the law would likely violate the Constitution’s separation of powers.

In the debate over built-in iPhone encryption, law enforcement and the world’s second-largest cellphone-maker agreed on one point Tuesday: It’s now up to Congress to set boundaries over who can legally access digital information in criminal investigations.

The battle between Apple and federal law enforcement has come to symbolise a long struggle between technology companies and the government over privacy and national security.

The remarks were a slight change to Comey’s statement last week that ordering Apple to unlock the phone was “unlikely to be a trailblazer” for setting a precedent for other cases.

Apple doubted that law enforcement, if successful in its order, would stop at the San Bernardino case. Ken Wisnefskiof Internet marketer WebiMax on Apple vs. FBI. For more on this iPhone standoff, CCTV America’s Rachelle Akuffo interviewed Ken Wisnefski, Founder and CEO of Internet marketing firm WebiMax. It also asked the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to reverse its order compelling the company to do so.

FBI Director James Comey and Apple chief lawyer Bruce Sewell are appearing before the House Judiciary Committee for a hearing on the encryption Tuesday afternoon.

“As attacks on our customers’ data become increasingly sophisticated, the tools we use to defend against them must get stronger too”, he said. While Comey argues that only Apple can help it hack into the phone used by San Bernardino Terrorist Syed Farook, he acknowledges that a ruling against Apple could set a precedent for other courts.

Comey said the government has not tried to access the source code for the device confiscated after the San Bernardino shootings.

Apple has since declined to cooperate in a dozen more instances in four states involving government requests to aid criminal probes by retrieving data from individual iPhones.

The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and tech giant Apple faced off at a congressional hearing on Tuesday over hacking into the encrypted iPhone of a terrorist killer.

Orenstein noted that the government has successfully used the All Writs Act to compel Apple to surrender information from 70 mobile devices to date.

On Monday a Federal magistrate in Brooklyn, New York denied the government access to an iPhone owned by an alleged drug dealer.

The Bachelor 2016 Spoilers: Ben Higgins Confirms He Is Engaged!

There’s a compelling theory about why ABC’s ‘Bachelor’ upset 8.1 million viewers and told 2 women he loves them

Ben Higgins’ most memorable castoffs reunite for The Bachelor season 20’s Women Tell All, where Olivia learns the hard way that she was not everyone’s favorite housemate.

According to a recent report from Hollywood Life, producers are considering these two ladies as The Bachelorette. So, that made it clear that Caila would be heading home and JoJo and Lauren would fight it out in the finale. Check out sneak peek photos and a preview below of The Women Tell All AND the season finale of The Bachelor!

Caila then added that, if asked to be the next Bachelorette, she would definitely consider the idea.

After that, Amanda Stanton went on to talk about the option of becoming The Bachelorette and it sounds like she doesn’t want the job. “She’s very likable with the viewers and the producers like the fact she’s a single mother with two young girls”. She’s said controversial things, and one of them was comparing fellow contestant Amanda Stanton’s life to an episode of “Teen Mom”. They feel like she’s the whole package and that both men and women really like her and want to see her as the Bachelorette.

Olivia rubbed a lot of women the wrong way during her time on the dating show, but it was her ill-conceived joke about Amanda that really ruined her chances with Ben.

Amanda, 25, who came in fourth place, ticks all the boxes – she’s lovely, sweet, and the fans seem to love her.

Meanwhile, host Chris Harrison recently gushed that he would love for Bachelor fanatic Kaley Cuoco, who is now divorcing husband Ryan Sweeting, to be in the hot seat. One of the girls Jennifer will not hold anything back when it comes to sharing her thoughts on Olivia Caridi.

The Bachelor airs Mondays at 8pm on ABC.

Did Taylor Swift Have A Macklemore Moment at the 2016 Grammys?

Taylor Swift, being a nice person who enjoys crafts, cats and well-aimed barbs, knows how to deliver a sledgehammer blow without calling someone out by name or using a swear word. “Thank you for this moment” – the Grammy-winner expressed, as reported by E!

He was referring to the fiasco from the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards, where West interrupted Swift during her acceptance speech and reminded her that BeyoncĂ© had one of the “best videos of all time”.

In one of the long Twitter tirades that Kanye West fans have grown accustomed to, he claimed that Taylor knew about the lyric before Yeezy Season 3, but a rep from the Taylor Swift camp team denied this. West’s new release has met mixed reviews and he has recently made headlines for claiming he is $53 million in debt and begging Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg to bail him out, despite West being married to multi-millionaire reality star Kim Kardashian.

Best new artist went to Meghan Trainor, while Ed Sheeran’s ballad “Thinking Out Loud” won song of the year – awarded to songwriters – for Sheeran and co-writer Amy Wadge and pop vocal performance. Swift’s speech is only slightly different from what Kate Winslet said after she won a BAFTA Award just a few days earlier.

“She doesn’t care about his song lyrics”, a source said, but continued to point to the hype that Kanye’s album has been getting as a result. She transitioned the fact into a message for young women who have their success “undercut” by others, which doubled as a response to Kanye’s “I made that bitch famous” line off Life of Pablo track “Famous“.

Taylor Swift can count on her pal Selena Gomez to make her feel better.

Any young woman who has ever been put down by a teacher or a friend or even a parent, just don’t listen to any of it.

She remained unfazed and ended it with a tribute to Lamar, shouting: “I love you Kendrick, you’re incredible”.
