"So far Clinton has been out-raised by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders, who does not have a super PAC and has nevertheless raked in $2.4 million from entrepreneurs and employees at tech companies like Google, Microsoft and Apple. And though Clinton remains just $1.1 million behind Sanders, her Priorities USA Action super PAC has failed to collect any huge checks from the tech industry. "
President Obama enjoyed strong support from tech donors in 2012. This year they’re more interested in stopping Trump than helping Clinton.

“I pay $3,200 for a single-bedroom apartment, and it’s a lot of money. In La Jolla we’re looking at a two-bedroom apartment two blocks from the ocean for almost half that,” Gazdecki said. “It goes to show you how much farther your dollar can go in different areas.”

“There are people who believe this was the worst case Apple could have chosen to fight on,” said one policy executive at a competing tech company. “It was a city phone; the guy is dead. There are people who think the facts aren’t great and that Apple should have quietly complied to avoid setting a bad legal precedent.”

"The Department of Justice has made the same application, for the same assistance, from the same company, dozens of times before," the DOJ said in its appeal Monday. "Federal courts around the nation have granted these applications. The company has complied every time. Until now."
In its filing expected Thursday, the FBI is likely to argue that Apple has unlocked other iPhones in the past.

"In deciding this motion, I offer no opinion as to whether, in the circumstances of this case or others, the government's legitimate interest in ensuring that no door is too strong to resist lawful entry should prevail against the equally legitimate societal interests arrayed against it here," Judge Orenstein wrote. "That debate must happen today, and it must take place among legislators who are equipped to consider the technological and cultural realities of a world their predecessors could not begin to conceive."

"It would betray our constitutional heritage and our people's claim to democratic governance for a judge to pretend that our Founders already had that debate, and ended it, in 1789," the judge said.
