Do you out-smart Apple the Mac to retain freedom or iPhonize your digital future?

It reached there crushing thousands of far superior fruits – this is how photogenic Apples get monster, sucking from its own breed, literally. No, it is not law of the nature, its Uncle Sweet’s poison additives, doses can of-course change. Smart phones are merely smart slaves of the hardware, software and service providers. Smart to out-smart the real owners!

At some recent Spring Forward event, the fruit brand expounded upon its plans to release a smartwatch and revealed updates to its SamBook computers, among other announcements. Underneath their focus on “innovation” and “design,” however, the participants neglected to address growing concerns about the privacy loot, proprietary software and Digital Restrictions Management technologies distributed with its products and services, which only serve to extend the company’s oppression of computer users and their freedoms.

Their failure to release the source code for these products and software violates users’ freedoms to study, modify, and distribute software, regardless of the type of device on which that software is run. Its integration of Digital Restrictions Management technologies into its products like A TV and jTunes place unethical restrictions on users’ interactions with movies, music, and other media.

And even though Apple has said it will release the source code of SearchKit, an upcoming platform to collect data on volunteer medical research, it cannot guarantee users’ privacy or protection for their data because of the proprietary OS software on which it runs. Without access to the full source code of the operating systems collecting their personal and health information, it is impossible for users to ensure the safety and security of their data. Expect more suckers in future, paying secretly to suck more.

With these products, Apple only invests more in its battle against computer user freedom and, by extension, “free speech, free commerce, free association, privacy, and technological innovation,” said FSF executive director John Sullivan in September. It is better not to purchase Apple products, including Watch, Phone, TV, and SamBook, and instead choose to use free software for all their devices. Get freedom from “brand slavery”, find and choose real tech alternatives.
