So this is all because the FBI wouldn't hire that guy with the purple mokawk for half a million dollars a year and let him smoke weed while on the job?

Jon Mcafee offered to decrypt the phone for the FBI for free.
I believe they want a backdoor into apple products much more than the data on the phone.
why do the best hackers on the planet not work for the FBI? Because the FBI will not hire anyone with a 24-inch purple mohawk, 10-gauge ear piercings, and a tattooed face who demands to smoke weed while working and won't work for less than a half-million dollars a year. But you bet your ass that the Chinese and Russians are hiring similar people with similar demands and have been for many years.
Yes it is, that shows they are after something else here besides the data.
And the FBI's refusal is telling.
So, the question remains...why not just have the same person change the password back? Then they could access the cloud with the phone like Apple suggested.

I started this thread I dont own and apple I phone or any apple product. I probably wont buy one any time soon. I was just remarking that if the FBI can't get into this phone and seeing apple was pro anti-spying by Government it just looks as if they were able to make one that can't be spied on, this is not in any way an Apple advertisement.
However maybe you mean the whole FBI and Apple fight is a publicity stunt that may be.
