Daring statement from David Farrington on how Apple and Google work together to track users and customers:
Hypocrisy rules these days. Apple gets billions of dollars in free money from Google simply by making Google’s search engine the default on Safari for more than 1-billion Mac, iPhone, and iPad users. Apple knows Google tracks their customers and culls personal and private information about each one of us. Apple knows that but still pushes Google onto its customers as the default search engine.
Apple knows what Google does but cashes the checks anyway.
Yes, Apple’s Safari browser has settings which can help reduce such tracking. Apple allows ad blockers on Mac, iPhone, and iPad which further reduce such tracking efforts. But Apple receives billions of what some describe as pure profit by its collusion with Google. How is that not hypocrisy?
Sounds like it.
