Apple is one of the largest tech companies in the United States that have been involved in user spying scandals, with many accusing the firm of working with the government on snooping on customers and providing law enforcement with access to their data. 

Cupertino, on the other hand, has actually claimed to be doing otherwise, fighting against the government on several occasions, including in early 2016 when it refused to hack a locked iPhone that was allegedly used by one of the San Bernardino terrorists.

New “Smart Phone” Will Be Quietly Studying Your Behavior And Reacting In Real-Time

Bernie Suarez
Activist Post

The march towards an Orwellian future where every form of human behavior is being monitored by AI-driven appliances and electronics is quickly becoming a reality. This was the plan from the start and as we can see the ruling elite have not slowed down one bit in their attempt to create this kind of world.

It is thus no surprise that Samsung is releasing a new smart phone this week called the S8 and S8+ that has a software called “Bixby” which will be studying your behavior in real-time and will be reacting, responding and “learning” from you accordingly.

The new Samsung S8 smart phone represents one of the first portable devices released to the general public in which the owner will be officially creating a 2-way relationship with the machine. The phone will carry a feature that can be activated which will require biometric data (retinal scan and facial recognition) in order to use the phone, and you can sure many people will take advantage of this feature. Passwords and pin numbers will soon be no more as the masses are conditioned into using biometric data.

The case, which can only be removed with a specific screwdriver, allows parents to set time restrictions on their child’s smartphone usage via an accompanying app.

Motion detectors built into the case – called OTOMOS – also deactivate the phone automatically when the child is walking, to prevent them from checking the devices while on the move. Continue reading “Smartphone case that allows parents to stop children becoming addicted to devices”

THE ATTACK OUTSIDE the United Kingdom’s parliament in London last Wednesday was over in just 82 seconds, but the backlash from the incident is continuing to develop. On Sunday, a firestorm was triggered when a leading British government minister, in a television interview, appeared to apportion some blame for the incident on WhatsApp, which allows smartphone users to send and receive encrypted text messages that are difficult for police and spy agencies to monitor.

At about 14:40 on London’s Westminster Bridge, 52-year-old Khalid Masood drove his rented Hyundai Tucson at high-speed into a crowd of people, killing three and injuring upwards of 40. He continued towards the nearby parliament, where he got out of his car and, wielding two knives, stabbed and killed a policeman. Seconds later, an armed officer on the scene shot Masood two or three times, and he fell to the ground, later dying from his injuries.
