Is Apple Big Brother?

Currently the largest company in the history of the economic world (by market cap), Apple has grown significantly over the past few years. Apple’s products from iPhones to iPads to iPods to PC’s have increased in demand substantially compared to their competitors. With their memorable launch in 1984 of the Mac, Apple used George Orwell’s classic novel 1984 as the premise for the ad. Was this deliberate? Everyone knows that Apple  applications require very sensitive credit and personal information to be submitted over Apple devices. As well, the devices can be tracked more easily with much less security and privacy capabilities than competitors such as Research in Motion (RIM).

With the largest increase in sales coming from all levels of government as well as corporate clients, Apple customers are more vulnerable and more trackeable than ever in this age of connectivity. Have their devices been pushed on purpose for this reason alone? Is Big Brother watching or tracking you through your Apple device? Is Apple trying to take over and perhaps control the world (from a technology perspective)? Is Apple Big Brother?

    Thanks for every other magnificent post. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such a perfect method of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m at the look for such information.
