MacVoices #16079: Bryan Chaffin’s Evaluation of Privacy, Encryption, The FBI and Apple

MacNotable Bryan Chaffin  and host Chuck Joiner  have a wide-ranging discussion on the latest developments in the FBI vs. Apple matter, since there seems to be something new to the case every day. As Bryan points out, there are a wide variety of players in this drama: the media, the public, legislators and lawmakers at the state and federal levels, foreign governments, security analysts and more. The motivations and impact of all the actors needs to be reviewed and evaluated, and that’s what this discussion tries to accomplish through discussion and debate.
