As Prince Heirs Stew, Bankers & Lawyers Cash in on Estate

Billboard:

As the second anniversary of Prince’s death approaches, his heirs have yet to collect a dollar of his estimated $200 million estate. But bankers, lawyers and consultants have earned millions from it.

The long saga to settle the estate provides a cautionary tale about dying without a will, as Prince did when he died of an accidental opioid overdose at his suburban Minneapolis studio on April 21, 2016, and the heirs can’t quit squabbling. (emphasis added)

This is truly sad.

Of course, for the bankers and lawyers, there’s no incentive to “hurry things up” or “settle the estate,” because there’s no money in moving things along! The real money is in the administration of the estate. The heirs may not have seen one red cent, but you better believe the bankers and lawyers have been collecting their fees for nearly two years…

Congress Criticizes FBI Quest for iPhone ‘Backdoor’

Ed Hardy writing at Cult of Mac:

Congress has called the FBI on the carpet for its attempt to require Apple to build a backdoor into the iPhone. A letter went out today from a bi-partisan group of representatives accusing the law enforcement agency of over-stating difficulties in unlocked iPhones involved in crimes.

The ten congresspeople wrote that the FBI deliberately didn’t explore all the options to unlock the iPhone belonging to a mass shooter because they wanted an excuse to force Apple to modify iOS so it’s easy for law enforcement to access.
