Piers Morgan Doesn't Really Seem To Understand How iPhones Work

Piers Morgan Doesn't Really Seem to Understand How iPhones Work

There have been a ton of melodramatic statements made about Apple's current disagreement with the FBI — many of them from Apple itself! But a tweetstorm from Piers Morgan might take the cake.

Morgan's wilfully ignorant and often inflammatory comments managed to engage the tech community and get some folks pretty riled up. Reading his tweets are like arguing with your dad.

Except it's not really like an actual door —

Well, it's not really hacking, it's like —

Technically Apple can't —

Safety isn't —

But Mark Zuckerberg said —

Except Bill Gates didn't say — hey, you know what, Piers?

OK, well this one is probably true.



    He is a clear example of why politics shouldn't get involved with technology, he opens his mouth without any clue as to what encryption is or how it works.

      He might have no clue about encryption but he certainly knows how to get an opinion into the minds of the hoi polloi. Even if Apple is 100% correct in their stance, everyone that has no clue (ie most of the populace) will firmly believe they are in the wrong.

      You can't battle bs with facts you need an equally emotive stance.

      NBN started on the same notion and the vendors rubbed their hands with glee...

    Piers Morgan doesn't seem to understand anything.

      He understands gutter/tabloid journalism and that's all that matters with the media today.

    Ah Piers... At the time I was more than a little concerned for your welfare, but on several occasions since then I've read about outlandish things you've said or done, and each time I've found myself re-imagining that day you faced Brett Lee in the nets during the lunch break in an Ashes test, and each time he bowls a bit faster, hits you harder and breaks more ribs. I was initially shocked that he would intentionally put you in such danger, but now that I've come to know you, I question whether in fact he might not have tried hard enough.
