Tim Cook Calls Out Big Tech

 

Normally as most of you know, I do an idiot of the week on Wednesday, today I want to personally thank Tim Cook and Apple.

tim-cook-apple-crimeshop

Tim Cook called out big tech over sharing user data, the equivalent for anyone who does not understand marketing 101 or advertising, as basically selling out ones customer.

For anyone who is not an Apple customer, we Apple customers will find a way to get our beloved tech from Apple, and only Apple for a multitude of reasons.

The media tells us that Apple is attempting to only sell to the elite. For many of us who happen to own Apple products, that is the furthest from the truth that any story can be.

We pay for up to date tech, and we also expect that tech to protect us. Be for the most part, hacker proof, not sell our data because what a lot people do not realize, hackers are so easily able to hack us because our user data is sold like one might drink water on a minute, by minute basis. Or in my case, coffee.

Apple, for those of us who have been loyal to Apple, does not subscribe to the selling of user data to anyone.

I love that.

Tim Cook went public and countered claims that firms need to siphon user data to improve product.

And any Apple product is a testament to that.

While the tech might be more expensive, it also understands its customers on a level, Google, FaceBook, Oracle, AdSence, Target, Walmart, Amazon, etc or any other company simply do not. 

Don’t sell us out by selling out user data.

google-sells-user-data-crimeshop

Tim Cook:

‘The narrative that some companies will try to get you to believe is: ‘I’ve got to take all of your data to make any service better…’ ‘Well, I don’t believe them. Whoever’s telling you that, it’s a bunch of bunk.”

Earlier this year, Apple began requiring developers to clearly communicate how their users’ personal data would be used in apps, while Facebook and Google have repeatedly come under fire for how they treat customer data, Facebook being at the forefront of that delima recently.

Just last week, Facebook  begrudgingly revealed that it had been hit by a data breach that gave hackers complete access to 50 million users’ profiles.

In addition to that, Facebook logged an additional 40 million users out of their accounts as a security measure, which brought the total number of users who were possibly affected to 90 million.

And that kind of breach would never hit Apple because they know what customers want, and are very protective of that.

Advertisers and marketing is all about stealing user data, Apple clearly gets that customers are actually not okay with that and are quite frankly tired of it.

Maybe it’s time for the door to door salesman again because tech and AI are allowing me, with the help of Apple to stop advertisers and marketers from obtaining my user data.

So this week, instead of a loser, I present a winner.

Apple and Tim Cook.

Google Letting Users Know the FBI has Requested User Data

LuminosityLink-crimeshop

LuminosityLink – Colton Grubbs

 

Google has begun the tedious process of letting some users know that the FBI had requested their user data according to what users are saying on Reddit and HackForums.

google-crimeshop

“Google received and responded to legal process issue by Federal Bureau of Investigation (Eastern District of Kentucky) compelling the release of information related to your Google account,” read an email sent to users.

fbi-crimeshop

Now don’t go into a panic or anything because this only affects specific users that are tied to the Colton Grubbs case.

Colton was one of the creators of LuminosityLink which was a remote access tool that was as luck would have it, marketed as a hacking tool that could control computers remotely.

And the Grubbs case was investigated in the same district as the FBI request is stemming from. The case is still under seal and some of the users who reported to receiving the email, well they purchased the hacking software.

Google can elect notify users of government requests when allowed to do so.

Google – Thumbs Up

google-job-search-crimeshop

Jobs for Veterans

billboard-trump-idiot-crimeshop

On Tuesday of this week Donald Trump tweeted out accusations against Google, accusing the company of prioritizing “fake news” in its search results and for rigging its search engine against Donald Trump as well as other conservatives.

Welcome back to the Nixon era of the US presidency folks because this claim was brought forth with absolutely no supporting evidence whatsoever.

It’s a claim that was made up so as to further incite fear mongering and to further divide the people of the United States.

A claim that Google also denies, which they are right to do.

What Trump failed to actually mention with regards to Google is that the company just gave military veterans a leg up which far more than let’s say the Department of Veterans Affairs is actually doing for our service members.

That agency seems to be more focused on committing fraud, abuse and theft of tax payer dollars rather than actually assisting our veterans.

Google on the other hand just unveiled a new search engine that is specifically designed to help military veterans find civilian jobs.

Google-Search-Jobs-Veterans-crimeshop

The new features, available now, let military service members and their families search “Jobs for Veterans” and then enter specific military job codes MOS, AFSC, NEC and so on to find civilian jobs with skills similar to those that they used in the military.

Google deserves a thumbs up for this move, because it is a move that is long overdue for our nations military servicemen and women.

Artificial Intelligence to Replace Vladimir Putin as Russia’s President?

 

Putin-Imposes-UN-Sanctions-CrimeShop

 

Vladimir Putin to be ousted as Russian President by AI

At least that is according to some in the mainstream media today. Believe it or not one of my contacts left me a rather long voicemail today indicating that tens of thousands Russian’s if not many, many more, would rather vote for an AI in the March 2018 Russian Presidential election.

virtual-assistant-crimeshop.jpg

A bid, Putin has said he is in fact running for.

Kim-Dotcom-with-crimeshop

The funniest part about this? Does anyone remember when @KimDotcom prior to America electing a new president, released his voting results?

Russia-fake-social-media-crimeShop

Many Americans were willing to vote Vladimir into office as the next president of the United States over Hillary or Donald Trump.

Trump-Russia-Dossier-CrimeShop

I do have to admit here that I am very intrigued by this still the same. I mean I am all for technology. I do not travel light myself, I use a little of everything, chromebook, iPhone, Apple Watch, iPad Pro, Fire HD and I am pretty sure I have a kindle around here somewhere.

Device_pile-crimeshop.jpg

Each of those come with an AI assistant, and I do use them all.

Vladimir is going to be squaring off in his bid to be re-elected with a reality TV star and a very popular cyber assistant going by the name of Alisa.

inside-yandex-crimeshop

Alisa was built by the Russian tech company Yandex, and she has been turned into one hell of a political machine, or so I have been told.

She would be building the political system of the future which makes rational and logical decisions through a rational thought process of you will.

Alisa’s 2018 campaign website describes how she is a better choice than her opponents:

Dedication to logic rather than emotion

Her ability to process information of course

She would be available 24/7, she wouldn’t need sleep naturally

Her ability to alter her political position based on communication with millions of well, Russians on a daily basis

And finally

She is pretty much immortal

On a side note she has promised to know everything about everyones problems.

Hey Yandex, send Alisa my way, I could use an AI like this currently then again, so could the American failing political machine.

Is anyone else wondering why in the hell America didn’t think of this before we ended up having to choose between Hillary or Trump?

As with any politician, Alisa does have a dark side.

joseph-stalin-crimeshop

She seems to support quite a few practices of one –  Joseph Stalin:

“Q: In Russia there are enemies of the people.

A: There are people…and there are non-people!

Q: Can they be shot?

A: They must be!

Q: That would be ok

A: No doubt about it.

Q: But they are people

A: Soon they will be non-people

Q: How do you feel about the Gulag?

A: Positively.

Q: Did you understand the question?

A: Of course I did.

Q: How do you feel about the methods of the 1930s in the USSR?

A: Positively

Q: And shooting enemies of the people – that’s ok?

A: People will forgive you for everything, if it doesn’t concern them”

Then again, at one point a Twitter bot proclaimed once that “Hitler was right, I hate jews.”

roy-moore-thinks-america-was-at-its-best-when-slavery-existed-crimeshop

May just say that AI’s are not the only ones making this mistake. Earlier this year Roy Moore, the douche-bag Alabama Senate candidate, who is basically a dirty old man who attempted sexual misconduct with teen girls back in the day once said:

“America was a better place at a time when slavery was still legal.”

So, that guy can’t be fixed like an AI with like a small adjustment or some code, he’s pretty much permanently a racist, bigot, child rapist, scum bag.

This AI running the government idea is looking better and better…

donald-trump-drunk-af-crimeshop

We will have to see how this turns out, because if it goes well we may never be forced to have another drunken Trump in office again.
