Google’s also peddling a data collector through Apple’s back door
Almost as if… they’re both surveillance capitalists acting exactly as you would expect surveillance capitalists to act.
I'd add that it should also become bad manners to default to any amount of data collection, have less-than-solid encryption for everything, or not to offer a comfortable way to port your own data to another service.
You wouldn't eat at a restaurant where they scan your passport before they let you in, have no soap in the bathroom and tell you the price after you've eaten.
...metaphor limps a bit but still ...
There's a trillion dollars business on mass surveillance: this is the one to blame, not yourself, not your relations, but the militaro-industrial complex that creates both Frontex and Smart Cities. These are the same people.
