Silicon Valley bigwigs back Apple in FBI encryption battle

The European Union’s negotiations with British Prime Minister David Cameron continued on Friday with no deal being reached on a potential ‘Brexit’. New documents have surfaced showing Volkswagen executives may have known about the company’s cheating on emissions tests earlier. Ameera David tackles both stories. RT Correspondent Lindsay France joins to discuss the growing battle between Apple’s Tim Cook and the FBI, as Silicon Valley bigwigs are throwing their support behind their rival executive. Max Wolff, chief economist at Manhattan Venture Partners, tells Ameera what he sees in store for the future of self-driving cars as more companies fight to be the first to market.

After the break, Marin Katusa, chairman of Katusa Research, discusses whether oil giant Saudi Aramco may go public, and how countries are competing for their slice of an oversaturated market. And finally, in The Big Deal, Manuel Rapalo takes a look at the possibility of Yahoo! selling off its core business.
