Lance Whitney March 17, 2016
In an interview with Time, Apple's CEO says his company's battle with
the US government over access to an iPhone has been like a "bad dream."
Fighting the US government over the issue of iPhone
encryption makes Tim Cook uncomfortable. But Apple's CEO feels he would
have sold out had his company given in to all of the feds' demands.
Cook spoke with Time magazine
for a cover story appearing just days ahead of a courtroom showdown
between Apple and the US Justice Department. The two sides are over how far a tech company should go in helping with law enforcement investigations.
