"in order to unlock the phone, we really paid a big price, the third party paid the fee will be on top of my salary in seven years and four months. But I think the value of the deal." Comi said. Although he did not call a spade a spade, but we all know that COMEY's annual salary of $18.33 million, the FBI in the unlock spent a total of $134 million, this figure is really amazing.
the sale is really such as Ke said the same value? I'm afraid not, the latest news shows, iPhone did not get any valid information from the unlock 5C FBI, and after the terrorist has been using this machine and ISIS supporters to contact. But the Komi not discouraged, he thinks has mastered this technology, the future can help the FBI to unlock more iPhone 5C (running IOS 9).

Encryption is like a lock, if anyone can get the key to the lock, the so-called safe and come from it? (Jia Hui)
