The MacJury takes a hard look at the facts, fictions and manipulations that surround the FBI vs. Apple issue, data encryption, backdoors and privacy. Are the emotions of the issue clouding the judgements of those setting policy and precedent, or are there other factors and motivations in play? What are the long-term implications of the decisions to be made, and how will they affect the privacy of you and of future generations? These questions and more are addressed by the panel of Brett Terpstra, Weldon Dodd, Jeff Gamet and host Chuck Joiner.
