Do you want your DroidForums news team to keep covering the FBI vs Apple story or not?

  1. Keep reporting the news on this topic. It is relevant enough, and is worth walking that fine line.

    1. Keep reporting it. Despite the possibility of it getting too politically opinionated, we have done an excellent job at staying within our boundaries. Only a few hiccups that were easily remedied. Information is important for android, tech and our lives.

    The maturity level overall for this community has grown to the point we can handle tops like this. Do we get a post that goes off track a little, yeah once in awhile, but we will get it back on track.

    A topic like this is by its very nature going to tip toe politics. It's a topic that involve a government agency, not to mention this is an election year, but overall I see that the forum as a whole had been able to handle itself just fine.

    I'm honestly surprised it's gotten any votes to stop. Everyone on this site is a tech junkie, and in the digital age the only bad information is misinformation. As long as what you're reporting is true, it's good intel the rest of will make use of in some way, shape, or form.

    Of course, question is why bring down a US company's rep when they, the Gov't, have been using Cellbrite to hack for years?

    Think Apple will countersue, or at least attempt to get back some or all of the money Apples' lawyers put into their defense?

    I agree, whether it's Apple or Android, both saying they wouldn't give up the security, it's something that wasn't right to do.
    If I were a Windows phone user, I'd be worried since Gates said he'd sell out...

    No. They'll release a few statements and close the book.
