The drama between Apple (AAPL) and the U.S. government rages. The tech giant has now filed a motion to dismiss the court order that was issued in an attempt to force the company to hack the iPhone of the San Bernardino terrorist.
Instead, Apple claims the court order violates the company's constitutional rights, among its other flaws, according to USA Today. Apple had previously argued creating a software update -- which doesn't exist -- to hack into the iPhone would leave other users at risk should that technology fall into the wrong hands.
Although the FBI said this case wouldn't set a precedent, it's hard to image how it won't, and Apple has already outlined just how exactly that could happen.
As a result, Apple is reportedly working on making its iPhones even more secure to prevent the government from hacking the devices in the future. CEO Tim Cook has also made it clear the company is willing to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, cementing the fact that Apple really doesn't plan to back down from this one -- as if that weren't clear enough.
Apple closed $96.76 on Thursday, up 0.7%.
Foxconn's acquisition of Sharp for roughly $6 billion has gone through... oh wait, no it hasn't.
After Sharp agreed to the buyout, the Chinese manufacturer Foxconn has reportedly held back on signing off "because it harbors concerns over Sharp's financial future," according to TechCrunch. Apparently, a previously unknown $3.1 billion in Sharp liabilities is holding up Foxconn on the deal.
