Big Tech's Greatest Threat
Tim Cook, CEO of Apple computers, has gone on record saying that he thinks that the surveillance business model is "creepy." It is not a legitimate way of doing business. It is inherently deceptive. You think you are using a search engine. You think you are using an email service or a spreadsheet. That is not what they are. These are just surveillance platforms. The function that you think they serve, that is there just to fool you. It is to trick you into giving up a massive amount of personal data.
It is very hard for anyone -- any
business, certainly -- to go up against Google. The members of Congress are for
the most part immobilized. There are very few who are doing what Ted Cruz is
doing, and they are taking a tremendous risk when they do. Why isn't Congress
acting? Because Google controls Congress.
