Reading between the lines I would think that means Apple is supplying iOS source-code to the Chinese so they can "assuage fears that its devices can be used for intelligence gathering purposes by foreign governments." Probably too much in potential profits to just say no.
Anonymised of course, in the sense there's no name and address included with the data. For a 3rd party it's a really simple process to take what ATT gave them and combine it with other personally identifiable information from CC providers, pharmacy records, loyalty cards and credit bureau data. A company like Acxiom would be a prime example. Google is a relative data welter-weight in...
A couple of different ways...http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/08/att-selling-data_n_3561263.htmlhttp://adworks.att.com/products/tv-audience-targeting/BTW, when you get frustrated at trying to figure out how to stop selling your information let me know. I'll give you the well-hidden link to opt-out.
You pay for your cell service but still "get sold to an advertiser" by the provider.. Your pay for your pharmaceuticals but still get sold to 3rd party data aggregators who report your drug use to whoever wants to pay for the info. You pay for your car loans, mortgages and credit card use but still get sold by the credit reporting agencies and card providers. It sure doesn't appear that there's any difference between a free and pay service to me.But if you prefer to pay...
He doesn't say no latency. It's low-latency, so not the issue that it is with a service like DirectTV or HughesNet.
Elon Musk claims his SpaceX satellite internet venture will be low latency, with satellites in low-Earth orbit. Rather than the typical 26K miles above the Earth like HughesNet and other use he's planning to array his at around 750 miles, where latency would effectively be a non-factor for the most part.http://www.extremetech.com/extreme/197711-elon-musk-unveils-new-plan-to-circle-to-earth-in-satellites-for-fast-low-latency-internet
What about Google scares you? Honest question.Unlike your current cell provider Google wouldn't be selling your information to 3rd parties. ATT does. So does Verizon. So does Sprint. So does Telefonicahttp://www.technologyreview.com/news/513016/how-wireless-carriers-are-monetizing-your-movements/http://www.technologyreview.com/news/419101/mobile-data-a-gold-mine-for-telcos/Google does not. What they "know" is used to deliver ads for products and services you might be...
You don't believe that legislators need to be aware of all the issues involved with legislation they are planning to enact? Google, Apple and many others don't think legislative leaders have all the details at hand to make the right decisions. Lobbyists are tasked with making them aware. Is that in and of itself a bad thing?
Several states have dropped it, but the Federal Govt is considering the same now apparently.http://benswann.com/new-legislation-could-erase-common-core-standards/
Can't say I'd disagree. Isn't there some bill floating around to repeal it? Dunno. In any event I was trying to find out why the OP, WhiteFalcon, was using it to connect the dots showing the Student Privacy Initiative pledges from Apple, Google and the like were meaningless
