Summary: Apple says it “protects children” but it is in fact handing over a weapon to the state (against anyone the state deems an “enemy” for whatever reason) by eradicating the expectation of privacy in one’s private computing devices

APPLE has quite a catastrophe in its hands. It’s discrediting its own advertising campaign, which it needed to spend many millions if not billions of dollars on (convincing many fools that ‘i’ devices stand for privacy). In our next batch of Daily Links we shall show the accumulation of several new Apple scandals.

“The media has devoted a lot of space, time, and attention to Apple’s plan to scan and extract hashes from people’s private devices, not their communications, transmissions, or “online” (“clown”) storage.”Ryan Farmer, a longtime reader, doesn’t think too highly of Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO for about a decade now. Despite being gay, Ryan strongly dislikes Cook. To quote him: “He seems to be as much of an older white business criminal as the rest. Apple’s behavior is extremely right-wing. They exploit slave labor, don’t much care for human rights. They even delve into social issues with the software, like routing women seeking abortions to fake abortion clinics that are really Christians who hector women into keeping the pregnancy when they get there. And I don’t really like abortion, but I think that your computer should do what you asked it to do. Apple is clearly taking a political stand on a lot of these issues, and it’s squarely right-wing on social issues and in support of a corporate fascist state that doesn’t tax them or get in their way with regulation. Much like the other “big tech” companies, honestly. They all shook hands with Trump and then dumped him as soon as he got the “tax law” passed. They were paying negative real rates on taxation to begin with and now it’s worse yet. They got everything they were going to get from him and then cut him loose, and if Tim Cook cared about gay rights he’d have never been photographed in the same room, much less shaking hands.”

“If homosexuality was a criminal offense and a scandal today, and the governments leaned on Apple to help turn people in for it, I doubt they would object or resist,” Ryan continues. “They’re a business and they do what the government wants most of the time, expecting things in return for it. The “CSAM” excuse is just a foot in the door. Nobody will go to bat for these people because what they do is disgusting and detestable and should qualify for hanging, honestly, in many cases. And that’s the whole point. It will start there, but it will not end there.”

“Move to Free software. People are presumed innocent, not guilty, and proper legal procedures are followed (such as judges authorising a search based on leads, testimonies, and bits of evidence).”The media has devoted a lot of space, time and attention to Apple’s plan to scan and extract hashes from people’s private devices, not their communications, transmissions, or “online” (“clown”) storage. We have strong reasons to suspect that Apple isn’t the first; it is the first to speak about it and that should mortify every innocent person. Move to Free software. People are presumed innocent, not guilty, and proper legal procedures are followed (such as judges authorising a search based on leads, testimonies, and bits of evidence).

In the video above I forgot to show what I had planned to show; it’s my Palm PDA, which lacks a connection. It used Bluetooth back in the days; it still does IR, but without physical access nobody can see my personal notes on that device. And that used to be normal. That was, once upon a time, the expectation of device owners (about 2 decades ago, going back to their very genesis).

The problem isn’t just Apple, but all those large and state-connected technology companies which prefer for everyone to think that only criminals would want or need privacy.

“The problem isn’t just Apple, but all those large and state-connected technology companies which prefer for everyone to think that only criminals would want or need privacy.”“Our system of laws has traditionally been set up to at least have the appearance of the presumption of innocence and the theory that it’s better to accidentally let some guilty people go than to deprive others of their constitutional rights,” Ryan asserts. “And what the iPhone is doing is really an end run around due process. Because you’re a witness against yourself and you’re not secure in your “papers and effects” from an unreasonable search. The government is using the iPhone as a “constitution condom”.

“If the people who wrote the Bill of Rights were alive today they’d be horrified, I think, to see how many ways the government has nullified our rights and freedoms. There is literally nothing in the constitution that even gives them the right to do “COVID lockdowns”. The whole exercise has been one of an unmitigated power grab. They keep doing things that are disproportional to the problem that we face in order to set precedent. They declare an emergency and then they give themselves emergency powers that don’t end. Governor Pritzker in Illinois has used the Illinois Emergency Management Act to suspend laws, write up rules that conflict with laws, etc. and all of this says that he has that authority for 30 days. This emergency has been going on for 18 months and nobody has challenged it.”

Some people do as they please and get away with it regardless. It’s a multi-tiered society with official and unofficial ‘royals’.

“Some people do as they please and get away with it regardless.”There are many headlines this week about ‘Prince’ Andrew getting in trouble (lawsuit for sexual assault, coming from an underage sex abuse victim, obviously connected to the trafficker, Epstein) and lots of recycled crap about Bill Gates “regretting” his close connections to Epstein (even visiting him in prison to help him get out of there by reputation laundering). Gates obviously knew what he had done. It was not possible not to know at that stage.

Well, why did he “faint” as reported in the media (he was only concerned about the public finding out) if he is innocent? Why is his wife and his best friends among those distancing themselves from him? Why is he paying Twitter and fearing people who talk about him? One can only speculate, but remember that it wasn’t Microsoft (MSN) that turned in his pedophile engineer, who got arrested for pedophila in Bill's very own home. The tip came from Google because the engineer had passed child pornography through GMail (he also had an MSN account) and then, upon request, Comcast provided additional logs. The nature of these depictions (photos and videos) was particularly disturbing and we’ll refrain from explaining the severity. The amount of material was vast. It was spread among lots or devices, some of them portable.

“There are many headlines this week about ‘Prince’ Andrew getting in trouble (lawsuit for sexual assault, coming from an underage sex abuse victim, obviously connected to the trafficker, Epstein) and lots of recycled crap about Bill Gates “regretting” his close connections to Epstein (even visiting him in prison to help him get out of there by reputation laundering).”“Apple seriously underestimated the blowback that this would receive,” Ryan has told us in IRC. “Many people who are aware of what they’re doing have followed Apple’s “policy evolution” from “We will absolutely never build a backdoor into our products.” to “We’re building a backdoor into our products and it breaks E2E encryption in everything, including iMessage, just like the governments requested, but it’ll never be used for anything else. Trust us! Oh, and anyone who complains about where this is obviously going is a “screeching whiner”. There are dark days ahead if people passively accept this, and Google is no doubt under the same pressure from the same governments to bake this into Android phones as well. For Apple to do this while advertising privacy, then calling people who want privacy the tinfoil hat club and sympathizers for child abusers is hypocrisy of the first order. Your platform, in this case Apple’s products, are either secured or backdoored. There’s no other state they’re in. No partial backdoor. From here on out, they are backdoored government malware, in total. I predict that many people won’t notice or will fall in line with the “Anyone who wants privacy is a criminal, but I use my iPhone because the billboard said Privacy.” camp. Privacy for who? From what? Nothing that matters at this point. Perhaps if Apple is putting in a scanning program, they can do something about all that iPhone malware that manages to get along just fine even though their users are trapped in the crApp Store. Smartphones are a sewer, but Android is clearly the platform for people who prefer their bullshit out in the open where we can get a good whiff.”

Support the Founders of GNU and Linux, Besieged by People and Corporations That Hate Development Communities and Seek Oppressive Monopoly Over Everything

Posted in Bill Gates, Deception, Free/Libre Software, GNU/Linux, IBM, Microsoft at 4:49 am by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

Summary: The founders of GNU and Linux (Stallman and Torvalds, respectively) want to give us free (as in freedom) software by which to control our destiny; the forces looking to demonise and marginalise both of them don’t have the same objectives (to whom they’re antithetical)

THE OLD monopolists (IBM in the mid-twentieth century and Microsoft in the later part of that century) don’t want people to control their computers and be in charge of their computing. What’s the surprise here? There’s no business model to it. They’d rather keep people perpetually dependent on corporations and, via corporations, dependent on governments too.

The brave new world... They called it LinuxworldThere’s a rarely explored theme in society and in civil society’s history, as seen in the antiwar movement and fights for a vote, for a fair salary, sick leave etc. What corporations want is very often the exact opposite of their workers’ needs. In the EPO, which nowadays acts like a for-profit corporation, Benoît Battistelli and António Campinos have treated patent examiners (i.e. people who do all the actual work) like disposable junk.

“Don’t let these career lobbyists dictate what we want or need. They don’t represent people (corporations are not people), they represent or front for the interests of money and power.”In the video above I express my thoughts about the current situation, seeing that the war on Stallman has mostly calmed down (for now) and Torvalds barely gets to make big decisions in his own project. There are several recent examples of the latter. Rust (funded by Google, developed by Mozilla, hosted by Microsoft) is a prominent instance of corporations/monopolies making the big decisions through front groups called “security” something while the corporate media portrays issues like weak passwords as a “Linux” problem (we shared several examples of that in our Daily Links this past week).

Remember that we’re stronger together and some groups that only claim to represent communities (e.g. GNOME Foundation and Linux Foundation) may in fact be partly or fully captured by monopolies. Don’t let these career lobbyists dictate what we want or need. They don’t represent people (corporations are not people), they represent or front for the interests of money and power.

Bill Gates and Epstein; Gates divorce; Can we interest you in infidelity tales?

Summary: Some media is still trying to shift attention (some of the very same media that misdirected focus to Richard Stallman when a Gates-Epstein scandal unfolded at MIT), but people aren’t gullible enough

According to the Wall Street Journal, Bill Gates’s Relationship with Jeffrey Epstein Caused the Bill-Melinda Divorce (While the Media Deflected to Dr. Stallman, Using a Phony ‘Scandal’)

Summary: It’s becoming rather obvious that there’s real substance to accusations that Mr. Gates was in some sense enabling Jeffrey Epstein; while Gates-funded media told us that he was saving us from climate change and a pandemic (PR stunts for empathy and sympathy) Melinda worked really hard to distance herself from him, the father of her kids

BACK in 2019 it was emerging that MIT had taken money from Bill Gates through his close friend, Jeffrey Epstein. But media was making a fuss over Richard Stallman, with help from Murdoch-owned sites/channels/papers (as we showed at the time). The same media that has just published this piece. That same media now says (in the headline) that “Melinda Gates Was Meeting With Divorce Lawyers Since 2019 to End Marriage With Bill Gates” — a subject we already mentioned the other day following the news about the divorce.

Bill Gates Paid MIT Through Jeffrey EpsteinIt certainly feels like there’s not much left to say, but the main development is mostly of a confirmatory nature. It serves to confirm what we’ve been saying for years.

David Enrich wrote: “Our 2019 story about Bill Gates’s relationship with Jeffrey Epstein appears to have been a key catalyst precipitating the Bill-Melinda divorce, according to @WSJ…”

And to quote: “The philanthropist had discussions with lawyers in October 2019 around when the Microsoft co-founder’s ties to Jeffrey Epstein became public…”

An associate sent us two new examples from two large publishers (including New York Times) that very clearly serve to distract from this. We’re omitting links to these. The other day we saw some British tabloids doing the same thing.

“An associate sent us two new examples from two large publishers (including New York Times) that very clearly serve to distract from this.”“NBC is running interference,” Ryan, wrote in #techrights some hours ago. “They had an article saying nothing unusual about the divorce because many people that age are doing it. That has not been my experience. If a marriage can last into your 50s it can usually last until one of you dies.”

Maybe their best hope is that nobody will notice or only a few people will notice (or get confused, uncertain about the whole thing). For a very long time the corporate media used the typical news slant to distract from this very scandal that caused the divorce itself. Are they still doing that? What does that say about such media? Some people comment on this in other languages, but will international media finally report this far and wide? We now have permanent copies of some articles [1, 2], in case the wording changes later (or the articles get completely removed).

If it led to an actual divorce, then Melinda certainly knows it’s not some phony scandal but there’s something really troubling there. People in that age group don’t typically divorce (if they make it that far). Ryan notes that “calling antimaskers nudists is pretty bizarre,” referring to Gates calling people “nudists” while he himself was hanging out with Epstein.

“It’s very clear that Melinda has been trying to distance herself from her own husband while the media celebrated and hailed him as if he was champion of the universe.”“Why would the media suddenly feel the “courage” to report on the Gates/Epstein connection,” Gordon asked, “2 years after the fact?”

Ryan noted that “for at fault divorce, they have to have done something really bad. Like infect you with an STD, convicted of a heinous crime, tried to murder you or have you murdered, or you need to prove they were having an affair. It’s so hard to get an at fault divorce that many people who have been wronged agree to a no fault to avoid more court proceedings.”

“Melinda knows what’s up,” Ryan continued, “but it would humiliate her and possibly make her open to prosecution to out him. Some jurisdictions have a “know about a crime and don’t report it is a crime” on the books.”

As I note in the video, this serves to vindicate Richard Stallman in several ways, especially considering the timing or the timeline. It certainly does seem like events of the past two years (like greenwashing by Gates) were planned in the context of something a lot bigger, maybe even an impending indictment. It’s very clear that Melinda has been trying to distance herself from her own husband while the media celebrated and hailed him as if he was champion of the universe. If he’s such a genius and an international hero (like media insisted, sometimes because it was paid to print/say that), why is the wife so mortified and eager to run away from him?
