Apple doesn't need our data to make money
Excellent article. This is the best article I have read so far around the iOS 8, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus release. I appreciate you brought up Tom Cook's letter, the site dedicated to privacy, and showed the other side of the coin.
It has been very frustrating to read so much about "privacy concerns,"which are the same old stories I have been hearing for years now. That, despite people broadcasting their location, pictures, music, thoughts, what they eat, when, where, and with whom to the entire world without any problem.
So, why they are all of a sudden so "concerned" (an overused word) about those same pictures, music, and thoughts when it comes to "protect them" from a company that, as Tim Cook well said, earns nothing from all that, and has no interest, or reason in monetizing such information. It would be a waste of time, money, and resources.
I could go on and on about those inconsistencies that some people don't seem to see.
Thanks, Thomas, for an article I really enjoyed because it speaks about balance, and reminds us that before speaking it is a good practice to learn about all the facts first.
