Iphones "are" rigged to spy on you. It's all true and apple should be avoided because they work for the NSA and other security agency's. Apple iphones have GPS tracking and know where you are at all times. I would advise to also avoid android, as Google is well known for spying and works for the CIA.
When will you realise that its not these tech companies that are evil its the US government!
These companies have no choice but to comply, Google is always the first to take on the government to protect its data but at the end of the day they have to comply or they cant operate in the USA. Everyone else in the world then has to put up with being spied upon because of YOUR government.
@nebun : yeah, but on the other hand, it IS possible to access, read and compile Android's source code, and several teams have done so (at least for devices that run either an unmodified AOSP, or on 3rd-party firmwares like CyanogenMod), and considering that no-one has raised such a red flag about Android, Google itself at least didn't insert backdoors in core Android (that's not to say there's no such backdoor in Google Apps, which are installed by default on most devices and do have root access) - but while this remains a possibility, we're talking here about features voluntarily added to an operating system, undocumented, and probably impossible to remove or circumvent without crippling the platform - while using Android with no Gapps installed is perfectly possible.
Yeah, yeah, no surprise. If your spouse turns up missing, the police always have pointed questions at the ready that could not have been thought up without access to your phone, which is always the first thing they confiscate, warranted or not.
If people only knew what was stopped by the US NSA. A fraction is ever reported just to ensure the baddies dont know the US is onto them. Then of course if anything is missed and another 911 happens everyone will blame the US fro not doing enough, cant win situation.
That said, its a anti-Apple title since ALL tech companies can be spied upon or watching you at some level.
["Why do we need a packet sniffer running on 600 million personal iOS devices?" Zdziarski asked" ] & [""I think at the very least, this warrants an explanation and disclosure to the some 600 million customers out there running iOS devices," Zdziarksi wrote on his blog."
600 million x $500 = $300 billion dollars just from device purchases alone, he is a lying sack of doggie do. i question his credibility if he is going to lie over something trivial just to sensationalize his findings, which i might add from experience means are also over sensationalized by which he has already proven he's a liar. and we all know what type of people buy iCr@. } the PETA mongers, the greenpeace fish food wannabes, the people who voted for obama...etc etc. which those groups continually lie and have proven themselves huge liars repeatedly to the point the boy who cried wolf looks like a saint. the people who call in fake fires just to see fire trucks speeding on their way are more truthful in comparison.
i don't trust them for their proven decpetion and out right lies, but at the same time, one of their own (3 time rapist cover up prior to being arkansas govenor pot smoker 'slippery willy' clinton: " i did not have sexual relations with that woman" & the democratic congress majority that wrote the ILLEGAL digital/mandatory internet spy laws) signing and making it a law requiring the government spy on every one and that manufacturers are required to give the united states government access to everything back in the 90's to which the vice president Al " i invented the internet " Gore was the president of the united states senate and casts tie breaking votes. it also helps when those people appoint the ultimate rulers of what is legal and not legal to the supreme court. all i see is a bunch of low grade hitlers and stalins and mao's as supreme court justices.
also to note, these devices are made in china to which the chinese government owns everything, and given chinas long history and track record of stealing everything from every one else, it wouldn't surprise me if some or all of this spygate ways were chinese government mandate as a contractual conditional agreements with apple, to which steve jobs a loyalist clinton and obama supporter, agreed and signed the contract.
china is communist, obama is a Democratic Socialist of America.
Over three hundred people attended the first of two Town Meetings on Economic Insecurity on February 25 in Ida Noyes Hall at the University of Chicago. Entitled "Employment and Survival in Urban America", the meeting was sponsored by the UofC DSA Youth Section, Chicago DSA and University Democrats. The panelists were Toni Preckwinkle, Alderman of Chicago's 4th Ward; Barack Obama, candidate for the 13th Illinois Senate District; Professor William Julius Wilson, Center for the Study of Urban Inequality at the University of Chicago; Professor Michael Dawson, University of Chicago; and Professor Joseph Schwartz, Temple University and a member of DSA's National Political Committee.
and the main stream american media isn't going to rat out one of their own especially when they are breaking the laws of the bill of rights and the constitution http/www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/bill_of_rights_transcript.html
The mainstream media might refer to Washington Post columnist Harold Meyerson as liberal when in fact he's a leader of the Democratic Socialists of America.The liberal media also refers to Gloria Steinem,Cornel West,and Barbara Ehrenreich as "liberals" when in fact they also are actually socialist leaders.
The Democratic Socialists of America(DSA) is America largest socialist organization with an easy to understand goal.Here's a quote from their website http/www.dsausa.org/about_dsa:
We are socialists because we reject an international economic order sustained by private profit.
normally i wouldn't go to such lengths to (mildly in my view point ) explain alot of this but i have read some post on other websites by people all over the world angry and not comprehending how things are in america or why people in america do such things that in their world is crazy and am trying to provide some perspective to them (i've trimmed it down to the bare minimum i think pertains to their understanding so as not to be overly long winded.) and since apple products are a world wide this applies to them and they do have rights against the american government from spying on them as i double checked the famous documents to see if there were inclusions or exclusions based on locality, & it turns out "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, " (it doesn't say just in america) ".....do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. " (it only says it is enforceable FOR the united states of america, again it does not give any location restrictions against foreigners or against other governments) "THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution." (reasons for further definitions against the united states government, but again, not limiting or restricting WHO, WHERE, WHY, WHEN meaning the world can hold the american government accountable for violations of americas own laws and it is even spelled out in the constitution "To define and punish Piracies and Felonies committed on the high Seas, and Offences against the Law of Nations;" "In all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, and those in which a State shall be Party, the supreme Court shall have original Jurisdiction. In all the other Cases before mentioned, the supreme Court shall have appellate Jurisdiction, both as to Law and Fact, with such Exceptions, and under such Regulations as the Congress shall make." "The judicial Power shall extend to all Cases, in Law and Equity, arising under this Constitution, the Laws of the United States, and Treaties made, or which shall be made, under their Authority;--to all Cases affecting Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls;--to all Cases of admiralty and maritime Jurisdiction;--to Controversies to which the United States shall be a Party;--to Controversies between two or more States;-- between a State and Citizens of another State,--between Citizens of different States,--between Citizens of the same State claiming Lands under Grants of different States, and between a State, or the Citizens thereof, and foreign States, Citizens or Subjects."
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people."
(again either spelled out or does not expressly define who. states can be both foreign or domestic but no such wording defines either except lawsuits in the constitution which defines which courts handle which cases and does not restrict foreign or domestic states from making suit!)
so people of the world, if you can get to america, you can file a lawsuit against the government of the united states if these spy programs are found to be of the united states government mandate or origin as the bill of rights expressly protects you from the american government.
I would love the hear this explanation. I do love my iPhone and have known there are backdoors on almost all devices since the whole Snowden thing hit, but man cant we have some place to ourselves anymore (talking to myself no longer works there are too many people)?
i looked at his "BUSTED! Ukraine Caught Trying to 'Frame Russia' for Shooting Down Malaysia Flight MH17!" he either made a mistake or is a moron he is judging by the date on youtube server time which is american. i was playing a video game on american time on the 15th at 10pm my time, holland is 8 hours ahead of me (that makes it almost 6 am for holland ) and a bunch of euro players and african players started squawking on chats about this plane being shot down in ukraine, so i went and checked the news, but people started sending me youtube links in the game, there were about 5 better cell phone videos of people who posted this shoot down but i can't find them so it looks like they got pulled down, this one the main news agencies has posted is terrible. i understand why, in the other 5 videos i had first seen every one was happy and laughing and dancing while the plane was crashing ( very similar to the palestinians doing this during 9-11) and one of a SA-8 GECKO behind some buildings in a town near a wooded area another video showed an SA-11 going thru about 4 hours prior to the shoot down ( if i remember right) in torez just east of donetskhttps/www.google.com/maps/place/Torez,+Donetsk+Oblast,+Ukraineemail@example.com,38.2845013,10z/data=!4m2!3m1!1s0x40e0510df0e54653:0x95eb26e70828bdff 'Missile System' Spotted In Torez Just Hours Before Aeroplane Crash http/www.youtube.com/watch?v=0U9t4MOVKoQ the original video is gone but this one shows part of the original video i watched. (i'm guessing all rebel commanders ordered the removal of such things after they found out it was a passenger jet because some of these videos showed the actual shoot down to crash and people driving to the crash site.) the main town video that is being shown if you look at the 7 second mark you can see the missile contrail and that it's less than a 45º which looks alot like the SA-8 as most of the surface to air vehicle launchers require a 45º or greater or a 90º such as the SA-20's however the SA-20s are relatively new and i am unsure if the ukraine ever received any or how many before the break up of the U.S.S.R./CCCP.
u.s. military spy satellittes have been monitoring the ukraine every pass they get, i know damn well that american forces know where every asset of both sides has been driven since fighting broke out in crimea. i have heard that russia is trying to secure everything up to the denieper river same as before in WW2 with the Nazi's. i have also seen on every media website the propaganda for the russians side that they are in the right and no mention of the non aggression pact ukraine signed with u.s.a. and russia that neither the u.s.a. nor the russians would use military action against the ukraine in exchange for the ukraine giving up their portion of soviet nuclear weapons.
quite frankly with russian military where it is i think it highly appropriate if the united states gives the ukraine back nuclear weapons out of the american arsenal. a full complement out of one of america's nuclear attack submarines would squash this fighting and force putin to remove his so called " PSTD chechnyan veterans/rabid out of control wild dogs terrorizing the balkan neighborhood" and quite frankly i think the U.N. (united states) should help eliminate them if kgb colonel putin fails to regain control of his military that's taking russian equipment to attack their friendly neighbor.
