I fully support this! The problem with US government is that it's controlled by who spends the most money backing political campaigners and lobbyist. There aren't advocates for the average Joe who can't afford to spend millions pushing their agenda. I doubt this will go smoothy, considering the internet we know was designed as a surveillance system.
Both AMD and Intel have sub processors that can turn the system on from a depowered state, control the main processor, access data storage and have internet access. The security around it is based on obfuscation, which never holds up in the long run. People have already found loop holes and systems have been adjusted as a result.
Smart phones are also the worlds most advanced tracking system. Complete with duel facing cameras, microphone, GPS, and the ability to track and monitor all contacts. All these companies are US based, and it's no wonder that the US is the military and technology leader in the industry.
Iraqi agents captured a top aide to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and used an app on his phone to lure four commanders from the terror group into a trap, a security advisor to the Iraqi government said Thursday.
That's not news, it's old news. Everyone knows it's happening, but the average Joe doesn't think their information is valuable in the same way big data companies do. 50 million users were hacked on Facebook, but people continue using Facebook on a daily basis.
The hacked accounts are selling for between $3 and $12, though it is only possible to purchase them using semi-anonymous digital currencies like bitcoin and bitcoin cash.
If sold individually at these prices, the value of the stolen data on the black market would be somewhere between $150m and $600m.
Consumers need protections. The 4th amendment covers physical privacy, but not digital. Our constitution is not up date with the times. The problem is, our government is no longer protecting individuals, it's the perpetrator. I except to see a lot of resistance and doubt any laws will protect consumers in the next 5-10 years.
I also don't believe Apple is the saint they claim to be. Fortunately it doesn't take a saint to make changes, we just need a champion with a loud enough voice and enough people supporting them. Meanwhile, enjoy the free marketing Apple, well played.
