Privacy v National Security Debate #Apple #FBI

If in fact you can't crack that all, if the government can't get in, then everybody is walking around with a Swiss Bank account in their pocket.

In light of the brewing war between Apple and the FBI, President Barack Obama cautioned in his keynote at the South by Southwest (SXSW) festival that no one should take an absolutist position on the debate between privacy and public safety.

His key argument centered on the trade-offs Americans already make to guarantee their safety and well-being, whether it's going through TSA security screening at airports — something Obama joked that he hadn't done in awhile but heard is awful — or being searched at a drunk-driving stop.
