Facebook’s Zuckerberg ‘Sympathetic’ With Apple’s Fight With US Authorities

Facebook's Zuckerberg 'Sympathetic' With Apple's Fight With US Authorities

Facebook’s Mark Zuckerberg said Monday he was “sympathetic” with Apple’s chief executive Tim Cook in his stand-off with the US government over breaking into the iPhone of a mass shooter.

“I don’t think that requiring back doors to encryption is either going to be an effective thing to increase security or is really the right thing to do. We are pretty sympathetic to Tim and Apple,” Facebook’s chief executive told delegates at the world’s biggest mobile congress in Barcelona.

“At the same time we feel we have a really big responsibility running this big networking community to help prevent terrorism and different types of attacks.

“If we have opportunities to basically work with the government to make sure there are not terrorist attacks, obviously we are going to take those opportunities,” he added during an address at Mobile World Congress.

The controversy emerged earlier this month when Apple refused to help the FBI break into an iPhonebelonging Syed Farook, who along with his wife went on a deadly shooting rampage, killing 14 people in California’s San Bernardino in December.

Apple claims that cooperating with the probe would undermine privacy and security for its devices, while the US government counters it is a one-time request that will aid an important investigation.

Until now, Zuckerberg – who has been at pains to plug privacy features on the social networking site in recent years – has not spoken publicly about the spat although last week, Facebook issued a statementin support of Apple.

A dangerous precedent?
In the statement, it pledged to continue “to fight aggressively against requirements for companies to weaken the security of their systems,” saying such demands “would create a chilling precedent”.

Apple has vowed to fight a judge’s order that it should create an operating system that would allow the FBI to force entry into the iPhone.

Last week, Apple’s Cook also warned that complying with the order would set a dangerous precedent and open the door for governments and even criminals to access sensitive data in the future.

“Facebook and other large tech firms are global, and one of the things that they are concerned with is that when they make policy in the US, that policy is cited by other regimes, including non-democratic ones,” Avi Greengart of Current Analysis research firm told AFP.

“There is also the real fear that once you ensure that encryption can be broken, it will be broken, because the tools for doing so will inevitably leak out – and that imperils security for personal information, business information, and transactions.”

Consumer privacy ‘most important’
Other major firms at the Barcelona congress have also sided with the iPhone maker.

Richard Yu, consumer devices chief for Chinese electronics giant Huawei, said Sunday that privacy was “the most important thing to the consumer.”

“We should really protect the consumer’s privacy and security. Personally, I support… Tim Cook’s idea,” Bloomberg quoted him as saying.

Facebook was long accused of brushing aside users’ privacy concerns, and although Zuckerberg has strived to win back trust with a flurry of features, the social network is still in the eye of the storm.

Earlier this month, it was given three months by France’s CNIL privacy watchdog to stop storing data on people who do not have an account with the social network.

The decision comes after Facebook lost a similar fight with Belgium’s privacy watchdog in November when a court ordered it to stop storing personal data from non-users.

On a regional level, the European Union’s 28 privacy watchdogs have been coordinating probes into possible violations of EU law by Facebook’s policy for handling personal photos and data.

iPhone, iPad to Get Radical New Wireless Charging Tech in 2017

iPhone, iPad to Get Radical New Wireless Charging Tech in 2017: Report

Sony Corp, widely regarded as a key supplier of image sensors for Apple Inc’s iPhones, said on Friday it was bracing for a slowdown in the premium smartphone market after sales of its sensors fell in the third quarter.

Video game sales and cost cuts in Sony’s flagging mobile unit pushed October-December operating profit up 11 percent, beating analyst estimates, but the firm confirmed a much-feared hit to a segment that in recent quarters helped it shake off years of losses.

“Demand for image sensors from a specific customer has slowed since November due to a slowdown in the high-end smartphone market,” Chief Financial Officer Kenichiro Yoshida told reporters at a briefing, without naming the client.

Worries about weaker iPhone sales and a slowdown in China’s smartphone market – the world’s biggest – have weighed on Sony shares in recent weeks. The stock closed up 6.1 percent ahead of earnings, still down around 16 percent since the start of 2016.

Yoshida said Sony was planning its budget for the next year assuming a fall in global demand for high-end smartphones.

Sony also said October-December sales of devices, including image sensors, fell 13 percent from a year earlier. The segment, also hit by weak battery sales, booked a loss of JPY 11.7 billion compared with a JPY 53.8 billion profit in the year prior.

In addition to image sensors, Sony has depended on cost cuts and strong sales of PlayStation 4 games to improve its bottom line over the past year.

The two factors helped third-quarter operating profit rise 11 percent from a year earlier to JPY 202.1 billion (roughly Rs. 11,417 crores), beating the average JPY 175 billion forecast of 8 analysts according to Thomson Reuters data.

In mobile, sales fell 15 percent in a division struggling to compete with Apple Inc and SamsungElectronics Co Ltd, as well as low-cost Asian rivals. But operating income more than doubled to JPY 24 billion as Sony cut spending on marketing and development and gave up its pursuit of market share.

The company maintained its outlook for full-year operating profit to grow to JPY 320 billion from 68.5 billion in the previous year.
