Apple Well paint me red and call me a girl scout. "In its latest push to get porn off your computer, Apple now deletes all iCloud emails that contain the phrase 'barely legal teens'. It doesn't send the messages to spam, or flag them, it just straight up deletes them, and there's nothing you can do about it." So, at least we can finally put that silly myth to rest that Apple respects users' privacy. They scan your emails, including attachments, just like everyone else.

Google clearly and most definitely is selling my screen to third parties.


Right... It's their core business to sell advertisement. When a service is "free" on Internet, you are the product (Google / fFacebook / ...)

Google is not better than any other for that.

They sell it at the same time the provide you with a "free" service... It's the same logic as the "free" phone you get when you take a 24 month contract with you carrier. You finally pay your phone on a monthly basis with your contract.

But don't mix up selling your screen and your personal info. Google uses internally the info they collected to provide you with targeted advertisement. They do NOT sell it to third parties (At least not for now)

You want to get rid of it? Do the following:

- delete your cookies
- Delete the info Google has stored about you (They are quiet transparent about that)
