    Pre-warning, the above video has PG-13 language, so if that offends you, you might want to skip it. The HBO series Last Week Tonight wth John Oliver recently tackled the FBI vs Apple encryption issue dominating the headlines right now.

    Oliver does a good job of explaining many of the complications surrounding this issue, and of course, his satirical humor makes it a funny lesson as well. Check out the video and let us know what you think of Oliver's perspective.

    I should really watch (or at least DVR) his show. I've enjoyed several of these clips lately and I already pay for HBO for GoT and some other shows.

    Yeah... I've been considering getting HBO Now just for GoT and a few others (John Oliver being one of the "others.")

    He makes great points and seems to do a good job of explaining things like this so that people who aren't knowledgeable on the subject should be able to understand more easily.
