No, Apple are not perfect. No, they’re not your friend (no trillion-dollar corporation is). Yes, we must invest in and build ethical, individually-owned-and-controlled and peerarchical technological infrastructure from the commons and for the common good. No, Apple isn’t just the same as Google and telling people that they are when it comes to your privacy is patently irresponsible.

@aral Some very valid points about Apple as compared to Google. The idea that Google looks after us at the price of our privacy should be a eake up call however we live in a culture where people don't care. The general response is that if you have something to 'hide' then you must be doing something wrong. :doomguy: Sometimes feels like I'm pushing back against waves of apathy.
