As before, Google sides with Apple on encryption

The tech hivemind works in mysterious ways. On providing free internet, it’s confused. On invalid patents, it’s against Apple. But most everyone agrees that impenetrable encryption, where offered, should be kept impenetrable. Apple CEO Tim Cook has stood the company’s ground on this matter, pitting it against the FBI and the court in investigating the shooting in San Bernardino.

Google CEO Sundar Pichai has just voiced his support with Tim Cook in a series of tweets.

While the industry has opposition in the form of legislation, we have yet to hear about Apple’s formal response to the court order forcing the company to assist in unlocking the San Bernardino shooter’s iPhone 5c.
