A new bill introduced in Congress, called the Secure Data Act, would prevent a government agency or a court order from forcing a manufacturer to add a backdoor to a device that offers encrypted communications. The bill has bipartisan support, and was introduced in the House by Representatives Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), Thomas Massie (R-KY), Ted Poe (R-TX), Jerry Nadler (D-NY), Ted Lieu (D-CA), and Matt Gaetz (R-FL).
The bill would give manufacturers of encrypted phones, tablets, computers and software (including apps like WhatsApp) protection from being forced to weaken the encryption on their products. Not only would it prevent a law enforcement agency like the FBI from forcing a phone manufacturer from providing it with back door access to their devices, it would also prevent a court order from doing the same thing. There is one exception as mentioned in the bill. That would be for requests and court orders having to do with wiretaps under the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act.
The Secure Data Act is a reaction to the battle between Apple and the FBI that took place in early 2016. The FBI was able to procure a court order demanding that Apple unlock the iPhon 5c that belonged to San Bernardino shooter Syed Farook. Apple ignored the order, saying that it would have to build a special version of iOS to unlock the device. Cook told law enforcement officials that he was reluctant to create this software, dubbed Govt.OS, for fear that it would be leaked. That would endanger the privacy of all iPhone users globally. As it turned out, the FBI paid to have the phone unlocked by a third party only to find not one shred of worthwhile information inside it.

No matter how good the iPhone X looks, it still won’t pull away the staunchest of Android users.
For some Android fans, making the jump to the iPhone’s iOS operating system just isn’t an option, no matter how much thicker the bezels are on the Pixel 2 phones, Samsung Galaxy phones, LG phones, and even the latest OnePlus 5t.
But Android users have to admit, the iPhone X is absolutely gorgeous, even with that “notch” at the top of the screen.
There is one Android phone, however, that could match the iPhone X in looks and feel, and it costs half as much as the iPhone X. It even runs a near-stock version of Android, which I’ll always recommend over heavily skinned versions of Android that you find on Galaxy and LG phones.

It’s no secret that smartphones have tended to get sleeker and less obtrusive over time. Screens are growing, but bezels are shrinking. In a very real way, the boundaries between us and our information — our apps, our contacts, our very desires reproduced in pixels — are melting away. Apple has sensed the industry shifting around it, and it made the iPhone X in response to that. But, in a bid to make the transition less jarring, Apple also made the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
They’re familiar-looking phones that mostly operate the way people expect them to. They’re conventional. But that doesn’t mean they’re inherently lacking — far from it, in fact. While I suspect all iPhones will look like the iPhone X soon enough, the 8 and 8 Plus are expertly built, high-performance devices for people who want to ease into Apple’s vision of the future. And who knows? These just might be the last conventional iPhones Apple makes.
“Welcome to the Gen X phone – 10 years after the launch of the phone that redefined what “smartphone” means, we have the iPhone X (pronounced ten). A decade ago, most smartphone owners used keypads but very quickly they wanted to use nothing but a touchscreen. Today Apple reached the inevitable conclusion – the sole hardware button that controlled iOS has been retired. It’s all screen on the front now and it marks more than one first for Apple.” Read more here:
“Welcome the new iPhone 7, which just became official and there are lot of changes, some subtle, some major ones. Starting from the design, the iPhone 7 is now water- and dust-resistant. With an IP67 certification, it can last up to 30 minutes under a meter of water. The iPhone 7 looks almost the same as its predecessor, but with few key changes. The main among them is the new place of the antenna bands. They are now on the top and bottom edges on the back. Subjectively, this makes the iPhone 7 look a bit cleaner.” Read more here:
“Apple unveiled today the new generation Watch called Apple Watch Series 2. It keeps the same shape and design, but upgrades on the water resistance, performance, and connectivity. While the new Apple Watch Series 2 looks pretty much the same, it is now water-proof and can go up to 50 meters underwater. There is no time limit, Apple says it tested these Series 2 watches for weeks.” Read more here:
