Opinion: Apple is Big Brother

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 …

And they do so by inserting an Silicon Diode IV into our pocket books draining us of our hard earned money

Ladies and Gentlemen, behold … Big Brother is Apple

Here is my visual opinion commentary on what Apple has become since 1984 when it unleashed the Big Brother advertising.
