Apple laptop user has "vultures" lawsuit dismissed



NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge has dismissed a plaintiff's lawsuit against Apple Inc that accused company employees of waiting like "vultures" to spy on her every time she used an Apple laptop to access the Internet.



Leslie Carr sought to recover $60 million for trauma, which she said kept her from publishing on the Web. She alleged, among other things, that each time she used the laptop to go on line, "there would be a mass number of Apple employees waiting greedily like vultures to survey and monitor my life."

She got it right, people are watching her every move on line, except it's not Apple.



Apple likes to use EFI to spy on people anyway.

    Maybe Apple’s not watching. But others are.

    Her address is mentioned here:

    There is a picture of the very house where she lives here:

    Hey, but it’s a nice house. She doesn’t need 50 million. (See the case file, it’s 50, not 60 million)



    Conclusion: there is no privacy anymore!
