U.S. law enforcement officials are urging Apple Inc. (AAPL) and Google Inc. (GOOG) to give authorities access to smartphone data that the companies have decided to block, and are weighing whether to appeal to executives or seek congressional legislation.

Good luck with that. While they are at it, they should also require that the government gets the keys/codes to all safes — that’s basically what they want.
