Well here we go. In light of the FBI coming for us all this seems timely enough. When you're already the most hated and reviled poster on this board since Rex. What have yo got lose?
There's zero doubt in my mind Google is far more invasive and Aggressive at it than Apple.
Data mining is the only single purpose all the where my free shite at? Google users programs were ever created in the first place. The more you use Google software like Docs, Google Calendar, Android, Chrome , Google mail and Sync and now dozens of others they are such good guys they just give them to you for free--the bigger the file they get on very aspect of your personal life. Google is nothing more than the world's largest Soap selling AD agency and people gladly give up their whole lives to them to keep their free shite coming. Google heads have just bought the slick Google PR marketing campaign hook line and sinker.
And I'm no happier Apple does it or Microsoft too. Just confidant they do it a lot less. At least Apple and Microsoft are in the business of making and selling things for profit. Not invading your personal life for profit.
We've lost our damn minds letting these companies do this to us. It's creepy, invasive and dangerous. Entire data bases of what time your phone alarm gets you up in the morning, every single place you go, what kind of coffee you drink and how many cups you average before you buy more, what toilet paper you wipe your arse with, their psychological profile research data mining algorithms can probably tell if you do it standing up or sitting down.
And if you surf the web they know you're on the toilet and how long you take. It's coming so where it will be everything you say and do, who you say and do it to. They know exactly when you're working and when you're playing on the internet. They know you like to watch Big Black Sassy Mommas porn, They know you're Googling up Herpes or HPV treatment on the internet. What you buy, what you say on internet boards, how much money you spend, what you eat, who you eat with, what kinda booze you drink, how many drinks you buy in an hour, do you drive when you've been drinking, do you go to and shop at head shops for pot smoking related items, do you search backpage for escorts or chat rooms for dominatrixes, download stolen things off the internet, what kinda pron you watch, even what time you get up in the morning. It's all being stored and much worse analyzed by computer programs with a fine tooth comb.
Your wife blew your best friend at the No Tell Motel 2 on Staring Lane Two years ago and he tied her up with pink cuffs he bought off kinkylady.com and used KY Jelly he just bought at the next door Walgreens to screw her in the butt... Maybe that's why you've been getting Ad Blitzed from all those Divorce lawyers, child social worker counselors, and new apartments for 27 months and couldn't figure out why?
They know some spineless twit hates Gman and he's a suspect in the Post office box bombing near his office.
All that info is then stored away for future use forever.
Who the hell can look ahead and foresee how they might be able to use that massive amount of invasive data in the future? And for what? wait till Big Brother gets his hands on it or they sell it to your employer?
Oh I see here Mr. Powerman you called Gman a spineless cocksucker in a fit of frustrated rage at being unable to compete with him on Apple products. Look here Mr. Korkstand you were on your phone surfing women's colored underwear while you were supposed to be on your work computer working while at the last company you worked at. Our psychological analysis program based on everything you've said and done the last ten says you guys aren't suitable to work here. We can't hire you or you're fired.
They know how you're likely to vote, with geo locating always on whether you actually went to the voting booth or not, what radio station you listened to on the sat radio and who you stood next to in line and how long it took you while you were in there. They know if you hemmed and hawed trying to make up your mind before you flipped the button in the voting both. But they already predicted with 93% accuracy if you 'd hesitate or not or just had your mind already firmly made up. Because you let them know everything about you they knew with a great degree of certainly who you'd pull the switch for. Just like they know what new brand of PopTarts you'll probably buy, They knew what you're going to do before you do.
Dear Mr. citizen, I see from your location based data logs, TV listing search and Google/Apple TV and calendar you didn't watch the Democratic National Convention in 2012 and bitched about Democrats on something called the Poli board and to your friends via text all night. As a friendly reminder we are putting on your calendar the next local Democrat party rally in your area. And you Damn well better be paying attention and not texting or surfing while you're there either. Be there Aloha.
They know if I'm being paranoid and crazy and if I'm off my meds again. Remember, just cause you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
Their datamining programs know our expected I.Q.s and they can predict the low intellect of people that will call me out on this and the high intellect of those that will cut and paste it and when and which friends you'll probably email it to and in turn what they'll probably react to it.
It's only a matter of time before they take down and transcribe every single word we say on our cell and internet home phones. Im not really sure if it's legal cause it says it's OK in the user agreement or not yet. But it's only a matter of time now. It's Gold mine of info they won;t be able to resist figuring out how to get their hands on, and we all know we'll wind up letting them too.
We've lost our collective minds in this country letting these companies do this to us, Apple included. Putting ourselves at risk to computer algorithms we can't even imagine what's coming in ten years with all that info, And for what? Some free crap and so they can do a better job convincing us to buy shite we don't need with money we don't have.
And to anyone that says that 'll never happen. It'll never get to that point. How do you know? History is strewn with "it'll never get to that point" moments. IN this bizzaro PC world we live in talking about Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches is now considered dangerous and Racists, stoning women that get raped in third world hell holes, beating dogs to a slow death to intentionally terrorize them to up the flavor in their meat, These things are ignored, laughed about ,or PC excused as "cultural and religious differences". And Big Gulps at Circle K are now being banned. This shits inevitable if we don't stop it now.
And if you really don't think that they share all that info with third parties. Then why does that friendly little user agreement we all so nonchalantly sign say they do? So break out the little black helicopter animations. Tell me to shut the hell up you crazy Apple boy and go get back n your meds. Tyr to get me banned or just ignore me. Go on with your lives worrying about when the next incompetent noob will screw another WYHI thread all up --whatever. But it's coming like a freight train and we're all living on the tracks. Heck it's pretty much already here.
And remember, Just cause you're Paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you.
