If someone takes your iPhone, can they get your data too?For years, Apple has been working to make sure the answer is no. The iPhones local storage drive has strong encryption, and without a passcode or a fingerprint, theres no way to get past the lockscreen. If the phone powers down or goes 48 hours without a login, it locks down even further, requiring a passcode to restart. Its a huge problem for phone thieves and, as the San Bernardino case demonstrated, makes life difficult for law enforcement too. Its still possible to get cloud data held on Apple servers, and any data controlled by an app is another story but if its stored locally on your phone, its tough to get without your permission.

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Google (GOOGL.O) appealed on Monday against a record 2.4-billion-euro ($2.9 billion) EU antitrust fine, with its chances of success boosted by Intels (INTC.O) partial victory last week against another EU sanction.The worlds most popular Internet search engine, a unit of the U.S. firm Alphabet, launched its appeal two months after it was fined by the European Commission for abusing its dominance in Europe by giving prominent placement in searches to its comparison shopping service and demoting rival offerings.The Luxembourg-based General Court, Europes second-highest, is expected to take several years before ruling on the appeal.A court spokeswoman said Google had not asked for an interim order to suspend the European Union decision.
This is a short film showing the incredible light and landscape of some of the Scottish mountains and lochs.
Driving around Scotland in a van is an experience that surpassed expectations, even though they were high to begin with.
The reason for the trip was a location recce for an upcoming short film project, it’s safe to say we found some stunning locations.
We had only 6 days. It just wasn’t enough. There is so much to see and I just wanted to stop and take it all in.
