Gates Disputes Report That He Backs FBI in Apple Case

Bill Gates is “disappointed” with a recent report suggesting that he supports the U.S. government in its clash with Apple Inc. over unlocking an iPhone, saying it doesn’t accurately reflect his opinion on the matter.

“That doesn’t state my view on this,” he said in an interview on “Bloomberg Go.” “The extreme view that government always gets everything, nobody supports that. Having the government be blind, people don’t support that.”
