The following companies just betrayed billions of people.
Apple, Microsoft, Adobe, Symantec, and a handful of other tech companies just began publicly lobbying Congress to pass the Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA), a bill that would give corporations total legal immunity when they share private user data with the government and with each other. Many of these companies have previously claimed to fight for their users’ privacy rights, but by supporting this bill they’ve made it clear that they’ve abandoned that position, and are willing to endanger their users’ security and civil rights in exchange for government handouts and protection.
Wait, you mean to tell me all that talk about caring about users’ privacy was just shallow PR speak gullible people fell for?
I’m so surprised.
But don’t we all have the inalienable right to be advertised to and monitored 24×7?
EDIT: Should I assume that Google and Facebook and Twitter, etc, aren’t part of this because they are already native NSA / CIA ops?
