    The director of the FBI has conceded that future judges will look to his battle withApple as a precedent for law enforcement access to locked or encrypted mobile devices, the first time the government has conceded that the implications of the case stretch beyond an investigation into the San Bernardino terrorist attacks.

    The ultimate outcome of the Apple-FBI showdown is likely to “guide how other courts handle similar requests”, James Comey told a congressional intelligence panel on Thursday, a softening of his flat insistence on Sunday that the FBI was not attempting to “set a precedent”.

    The thing that comes to my mind: Is Comey thinking "well, ha! We've won the public opinion poll, so now we can back-track and start letting out the rest of the story...."
