In the up and coming announcement of Apple’s new operating system iOS5, comes the announcement of a new way of storing data in this thing called a ‘cloud’, and is trademarked by Apple as an iCloud.
In the new world order of globalisation, information collection has been of paramount importance on the world’s citizens. Companies are excelling the process so that all connected users put their information onto their ‘servers’.
Technologies are being centred around not storing your information locally but in this ‘cloud’. Millions of dollars are being spent in marketing of this new product, in order to brainwash the masses to make them believe that it is beneficial to them.
Social media networking sites, like Facebook, work together with governments and authorities in the exchanging of your information, without your knowledge or consent.
People willing post their partying habits, sexual experiences and holiday plans for all to see.
This is another form of ‘slavery’ the masses are willingly putting themselves into.
In this new era, criminals are also becoming more technically advanced. Identity theft is a reality, and information can be more easily obtained from users than ever before.
Governments and corporations are marketing the masses to have a greater online presence, mean while this information is being used by criminals to partake in identity fraud.
The only victim being yourself, and NOT the governments or authorities that enticed you.
Apple has been caught out snooping on your stocks data via its stocks app. Data that can be used to obtain stocks information in this manner is considered insider trading and illegal, by law.
Apple has been caught out storing your travel movements on the iPhone, unaware to most users. Also this information can be downloaded to Apple, giving them precise knowledge of your movements.
Recently Apple’s iTunes has been hacked, in which this knowledge has not been widely circulated.
