Nicholas Heide 02/23/16 Executive Summary Econ 1200 Professor Johnson Apple’s Evolution Into a Privacy Hard-Liner In the Wall Street Journal article, Apple’s Evolution Into a Privacy Hard-Liner, a conflict of interest is brought to light between Apple Inc. and The Justice Department, specifically the FBI and fellow lawful prosecutors. The main conundrum that exists is whether or not Apple will help unlock the iPhone once belonging to, one of the San Bernardino gunman, Syed Rizwan. The article begins by describing Apple’s side of the argument. Firstly starting with Apple’s take. Apple believes that by unlocking the phone, it would set a “dangerous precedent that would threaten everyone’s civil liberties” (Apple’s current chief executive, Tim Cook). The article tangents for a bit and describes a former National Security Agency contractor, Edward Snowden. The article states that he “exposed U.S. government data-collection programs, and the degree to which technology companies, including Apple, have been cooperating.” Furthermore, “after the Snowden revelations, the public reaction was compelling.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
