Apple might respect the letter of privacy but not its spirit.

If it did, it wouldn’t let its partners manipulate your behaviour in News:

If it did, it wouldn’t make Google default search. Or allow Saudi men to track their wives.


@aral Apple co-operated with the forerunners of ICE in around 1986 to stop clones of the Apple II being made in Taiwan.

More recently (about 2009) they built a custom CCTV control room for the Police in Denmark, which was used to surveil and dilute the climate protests that occured in Copenhagen (this was in some Apple marketing magazine, and hailed as superior to the Windows based control rooms most CCTV schemes in Europe operate..)
