Opinion: Apple is Big Brother
By Ray Hanania
In 1984, Steve Jobs and Apple made a promise to free the minds of the mindless and change the way we would communicate …
But in the 34 years since Jobs and Apple unveiled the Macintosh Computer during the Super Bowl in 1984, symbolically destroying Big Brother … Steve Jobs and Apple have become Big Brother
Apple Brother controls our minds, controls our iPhones, controls our updates, controls what we watch, controls what music we listen to …Image from 1984 Apple Commercial released during the 1984 Super Bowl. Photo courtesy of Wikipedia
And they do so by inserting an Silicon Diode IV into our pocket books draining us of our hard earned money

"I write about three topics, the Middle East, politics and life in general. I often take my life experiences and offer them in an entertaining way to readers, and I take on the toughest topics like the Israel-Palestine conflict and don't pull any punches about what I feel is fair. But, my priority is always about writing the good story."
