Apple patents lying to those who are spying!

You’ve heard the predictions. We’re quickly slouching toward a world in which your every move, every purchase, every act of “content consumption” will be meticulously and automatically monitored, tracked and captured. Algorithms will constantly profile you so advertisers can make their advertising specific to your location, preferences, personality, social group, income and education level and more.

Every major technology company, it seems, is scrambling to get into the user-data harvesting racket.

Everyone except Apple. When will Apple reveal a strategy to compete on the data-harvesting battlefield? 

But this week, something shocking happened that made me think: Maybe Apple isn’t going to get into the data-harvesting business at all. Maybe Apple is going to fight it!
