Question: Are we really so conditioned and trained, as to accept a piece of technology that actively spies on it's user in ways that would have made Allen Dulles and J. Edgar Hoover sexually climax at the prospect? Seriously every new piece of technology seems to be vetted at Langley, Virginia, DARPA or the NSA and then delivered to Apple for production. Hiring the best alpha-state programmers to then market (at exorbitant prices mind you) the latest super-grass device they can create (with Asian slave labour). What level have we allowed some of ourselves to sink to keep bastards like these in business? And that business is being a front for live-time SIGINT intelligence data collection at a rate never known in world previously. It's one thing to be so stupid as to joyously share the most intimate, up-to-date and private details of your life and whereabouts on known intelligence fronts such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and the lot, but where does it end? You're literally giving it all away and selling yourself down the river, and for fucking well what? To own the newest, most expensive spy device that's all the rage with people who are indoctrinated to become their own worst enemies?
There's a saying, that to serve them is to deserve them, and just what has this place become? What have we allowed ourselves to degenerate into? C'mon people, man and woman up, and tell these media-sanctified abominations that they can take the lot of their spy devices, cock them sideways and shove them up straight up their infernal arses. Time to become analogue people in the free-range digital panopticon, or enjoy your shiny iFriend grassing you out at every turn.
