I don't like Apple much usually but I have to say good for them in this case.
UnKnown-original, 21 Oct 2015According to the Special Theory of Relativity, nothing can move faster than the speed of light... moreScientific theories should hold for all experiments; if they do not, they must be improved. All experiments agree with special and general relativity. However, general relativity is not mathematically compatible with quantum field theory, so there should be new effects in the range both theories collide (big masses, very small distances), but we are far to test this limit.
OTOH, the 2nd law of thermodynamics is not a theory. Thermodynamics is usually a description of the global properties of system, which is usually more complex. Usually, it describes statistical properties of a big number of molecules/atoms/..., and so, the 2nd law is a statistical law that can be "violated" if you have a very low number of elements.

Joking aside, yes it's possible (though the probality is very low) to achieve FTL travel, but not in the sense of we can win a race with photon in the same course from start to finish,
It's in the sense we can win only by finding and taking the "shortcut" to the finish line.

The chances of something being faster than the SoL are still pretty high. (If it were a Law the chances would have been close to zero, take for instance 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, it is 'impossible' to contradict it)
anonguy, 21 Oct 2015This is hypocretes. Apple said that they encrypt the phone, but still collecting their custome... moreApple doesn't need to do that, they get more money with the marge from their products.
I lol'd at the comment section this time because it wasn't fanboy war.
So now Apple company above America country law? Apple just be joking..

RedOrbit asked Robert J. Scherrer, a cosmologist, professor and chair of the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, about all of these wild rumors and about the possibility of warp-speed travel as a whole Â– and, well, try not to be too bummed out by his response.
Â“HereÂ’s the bottom line. We donÂ’t really think faster-than-light travel is possible,Â” he said via email. Â“The lightspeed limit is written into the DNA of special relativity, and it is therefore part of the foundation of almost all of modern physics. And more importantly (since physics is at its core based on experimental evidence), weÂ’ve never actually observed it.
Â“If there is a claim of faster-than-light travel using a table-top experiment, I would be instantly skeptical,Â” Scherrer concluded. Â“And sadly, I donÂ’t think weÂ’ll see faster-than-light travel in our lifetimes, or ever, for that matter. Sorry to be a wet blanket. I am always happy to be proven wrong.Â”
The NSA doesn't even want that data to begin with. Its a carefully orchestrated ploy to gain public trust, so that apple can continue collecting data for NSA without any public suspicion. The fingerprint scanner was a brilliant idea, now NSA has fingerprint data of all iphone users across the globe

Anonymous, 21 Oct 2015can you honestly say it would never ever ever happen?I always hate to say something is impossible.... But we can conclude the the universe expands at speeds faster than light, so theoretically speaking if you were to jump into a ship and start traveling, the universe would be expanding FTL and you would forever be chasing the, even if you yourself were traveling at FTL speeds.
