Apple should be sued for fraud for advertising itself as the 'privacy concerned smartphone'.

No, not nothing. It's the best damn evidence there is: personal experience with detailed, professional observation and testing.

Oh, you believe that Apple isn't capable of spying on you? That this statement is based on absolutely nothing? Is that correct?

It's the best damn evidence there is: personal experience with detailed, professional observation and testing.
Erm, what professional observation and testing is then held alongside personal experience in terms of evidence?

Also, privacy is possible online. I know my RM username isn't at all at that degree of privacy, but I don't go OCD with the privacy concerns. It is indeed attainable if you're willing to purchase a VPN for general browsing, always retype passwords, websites and usernames (cookie-free browsing on private browsers) and whenever it is something that doesn't prevent you from using TOR browser to use TOR, privacy is already more attainable.

Then we enter the realm of privacy to do with knowledge of operating systems, hardware and settings, which is the part where Apple gives you nothing at all to work with.

Your sarcasm is pretty useless in this thread.

You confuse sarcasm and cynicism.

To a greater extent, I was agreeing with your previous sentiments concerning privacy.

Though as I see it, if we embrace technological progress, then we must also embrace the inevitable consequences of technology.

As I stated....Privacy is now out of the window.



I was also extolling Arthur Blairs prophetic virtues.

I did not say that. It's simply that I don 't care if they can, or not. I don't engage in activity to be ashamed of should anybody find out about it, so, there it is.

That's also what anyone with Jewoshs heritage thought pre-Hitler, what anyone with ties to the Tsar and capitalism thought pre-Lenin, so on amd so forth.

You don't know who is seeing it or what their agenda is. Crime is the excuse, the reality pf what rhey surveil and can use the information for is much more sinister. They could be making a virtual projection of yoyr personality and lifestyle tendencies, strategising how to place you in their society and use you. We don't know what theseassive corporations are using our information for.

At the very least, they use it to stratify adverts towards you and manipulate you as a consumer.
