Welcome to the Party, Apple

LINK: AOSHQ

Apple joins the ranks of elite mega rich corporations engaged in human rights violations and oppression.

Everyone give Mr. Cook a hand.
quote:

In case you missed it, Apple bowed to the demands of their Chinese Communist Partners and secretly deleted a key feature in Apple phones which protesters and dissidents had previously used to communicate discretely.

Apple's updates are usually very thorough about telling you exactly what they will change. But not this time -- the update, intended only for the Chinese market, omitted any mention that the "AirDrop" feature, long relied on by protesters and dissidents, would be greatly limited.


AirDrop eludes censorship/monitoring systems because, if I understand this right, AirDropped transmissions go phone-to-phone, like walkie-talkies, without having to first go to through a cell tower or the internet.

Users had no idea they'd be crippling one of the few tools they had to communicate without state monitoring when they accepted the update.

This is sickening. All the people lecturing us on privilege, greed, and selfishness are openly whoring themselves to China, destroying people's lives.

Of course Timmy has to bow down to his China CCP overlords.

Daddy needs to get paid to continue to add to his buttplug collection.

It's starting to get to me what's going on over there. This white paper protest is heartbreaking.

In America, you find party.

I think it's more likely we finally pressured them enough that they gave up the encryption.

Now you also have the EU threatening Twitter because of their change in moderating. Twitter might allow things to be published that goes against the EU laws on hate speech and misinformation.
The EU sounds like China, and the WH sounds like China as well. The govts are tooling up and gathering power over social media, media in general, to thwart any speech that counters the govts.

Oh, I'm sorry. This is about Apple. I understand the confusion.

Germans.

Because Apple has been evil for a long time, and because this is Nazi level stuff.

The important thing is that all my rich friends have an iPhone, so must I. Who cares about children being locked in apartments until they starve.

Apple is part of the mass suppression!

Maybe the Unibomber had it right!
