    1) They ended up wiping it (not with hillary's cloth)
    2) There are enough geeks out there that love a challenge and they have a way in
    3) They found the information in another way
    4) They are full of crap and are bluffing

    Feds gain postponement of iPhone hearing
    "On Sunday, March 20, 2016, an outside party demonstrated to the FBI a possible method for unlocking Farook's iPhone," federal prosecutors said in a filing Monday afternoon. "Testing is required to determine whether it is a viable method that will not compromise data on Farook's iPhone. If the method is viable, it should eliminate the need for the assistance from Apple Inc. ('Apple') set forth in the All Writs Act Order in this case."

    For the moment, the DOJ’s move hits the pause button on a case that has pitted Washington against Silicon Valley in a fierce debate over the role tech companies should play in terrorism investigations. The Justice Department now has until April 5 to test its prospective technical fix, which law enforcement sources, speaking with reporters on Monday, repeatedly declined to detail.

    Just put a reward of $1,000,000 on it and some high school kid will figure it out and Apple will be screwed. "What one man can do, another man can do".

    It is likely, a simple False Flag, designed to do TWO Things...

    1. This BS Announcement gets the .Gov out from under Frederal Court Precident, if they lose at SCOTUS, which is VERY likely, with ALL the Tech Folks lined up against them, and if they should win, are they going to Arrest, and Force, ALL the Apple Employees, as Slaves, to write the Firmware, that ONLY THEY CAN.
    2. By dropping the suite, they can still get the Tech Guys, to help them, in other ways that do NOT require the Techies, to release, their firmware....
    3. If by chance a way was found, the .Gov will never be able to keep it SECURE, and it will get LEAKED, and Apple will patch, the Firmware, in a New York second.
    4. Remember this is ALL only an issue, with the iPhone 5c and Older, running IOS 7.x.x. IOS 8 & 9, uses a TOTALLY different Locking Routine, which is much more Robust...

    3 & 4 will likely be already, in the WORKS, at Apple.....

    Actually, I think that there is something very important going on here...liberal Apple is saying no to the US Government after other corporations (Microsoft, google...rolled over. Here we have a corporation dedicated to making a profit saying no to the US government. Now, I don't know their reasons but...
