Google and Facebook now stand with Apple regarding mobile security probe by FBI

Google And Facebook Now Stand With Apple Regarding Mobile Security Probe By FBI

These giants and other large technology firms have been joining with civil liberties groups.

A number of major tech firms, such as Google and Facebook, have now shown their support for Apple in its battle against the American government, in the iPhone mobile security unlocking case being investigated by the FBI.

Those opposing the unlocking of the San Bernardino shooter s iPhone are continuing to grow.

In fact, there are now more than 25 large technology firms that have joined with civil liberties groups that are supporting Apple in its decision to resist the demands of the FBI and US government to unlock the smartphone2. The concern is that cracking through the mobile security of the device could set a dangerous precedent for the future. Among the companies that have already voiced their support for Apple include Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, Verizon and Amazon.

They feel that this could present a risk to the mobile security and privacy of their customers.

Those who are knowledgeable of such types of cases have said that this type of large scale support has never been seen before in a situation at the magistrate judge level, which is at the very base of the federal court system. The core of this issue is whether or not Apple can be legally required to create the computer code3 that would be necessary to breach a security feature of an iPhone that was used by one of the shooters who attacked4 and murdered 14 people and injured another 22 on December 2, 2015.

The user of the smartphone was killed in a shootout with the police and the device was later recovered.

The support from the tech and telecom companies in this mobile security case, and their willingness to file legal court documents is a direct reflection of the stress those firms feel when it comes to the chance of a legal precedent that would broaden the limits of what the government has the authority to force a company to provide within national security and criminal investigations.

Sony Xperia Z6 release date, specs rumors: flagship won’t appear at Mobile World Congress?

Sony Xperia Z6 Release Date, Specs Rumors: Flagship Won't Appear At Mobile World Congress?

The current-gen Xperia Z5. Sony Mobile released the Xperia Z5 lineup late last year, and the new Xperia premium flagships were made available in the U.S. yesterday. This leads observers to predict that Sony Mobile may forego a Mobile World Congress launch of the next premium flagship lineup, the Xperia Z6. According to Yibada1, although the annual MWC serves as a showcasing event for flagship iteration launches, Sony Mobile may be thinking that it is still too early for the Xperia Z6 to appear.

Instead, the industry follower predicts Sony Mobile will still have a smartphone presence at the MWC, but instead of premium flagship iteration, the tech manufacturer will reportedly switch to a mid-range smartphone launch. Allegedly, Sony Mobile will be launching the Xperia C6. Whereas the Xperia Z series serves as the top-tier lineup of Sony Mobile, the Xperia C products are more of entry-level devices. However, owing to its above-average specs in both design and internals, the Xperia C-series enjoys a following. The report also mentioned that aside from Sony Mobile making an Xperia C6 announcement at the MWC, the tech giant is also said to be focusing on the Xperia Z5 lineup first.

Aside from finally launching in the U.S., the Xperia Z5 flagship was also recently refreshed, with Sony Mobile releasing Gold and Pink color options, as well as releasing a Snapdragon chipset variant with 3 GB of RAM. Meanwhile, it is speculated that Sony will be adding the new Xperia Z6 in the mix by having a late 2016 unveiling, possibly by Sepember. Although it may still be some months before the new Xperia Z lineup appears, speculations about the Xperia Z6’s tech specs already float online.

According to AndroidPit2, the Xperia Z6 will be one of the main competitors in the premium flagship battle, along with Samsung’s Galaxy S7, which is rumored to appear at this year’s MWC.
