The blessings from technocratic conglomerates, just keeps coming.
Like the brown spots on your lawn (if you’re fortunate enough to own a home with a lawn) keeping coming back as long as your beloved canine continues to do their business on a fresh and green patch of grass; now, when you and your beloved, your partner, your main squeeze, or just a hook-up for the night, start getting down to business – well, the technocratic a-holes thinks its’ their business to listen in on your business…your whispering’s, your moans, your instructions, your climaxes and whatever slippery or oily pressing of the flesh might be shared between consenting adults.
Siri “Regularly” Listens in on You Having Sex, Apple Insists “Only for a Few Seconds”– via activistpost.com
Proper f**kery, Amy…proper f**kery indeed!
Should it come as any surprise? And yet the details are shocking and outrageous. A whistleblower working for Apple has revealed to The Guardian that its popular voice activated helpful virtual assistant Siri, now in millions of households, “regularly” records people having sex, and captures other “countless” invasive moments which it promptly sends to Apple contractors for their “quality control”.
Ladies and gentleman, and all in between…I implore you, when is enough, enough?
“only for a few seconds”… apparently, that encompasses the entire sexual encounter for many an insouciant Westerner.
But an anonymous current company insider and whistleblower told The Guardian:
There have been countless instances of recordings featuring private discussions between doctors and patients, business deals, seemingly criminal dealings, sexual encounters and so on. These recordings are accompanied by user data showing location, contact details, and app data.
Location, contact details and app data…so now, technocratic f**ks know where you’re doing it, with whom you’re doing it with, and app shittery that tells these f**ks God knows what.
Isn’t it now safe to say that whatever the modern era of technocratic and electromagnetic goo offers us, is pure f**kery of us all?
