Adam Smith Wins – Apple Fights Back

invisible-hand

The free markets are everything. That is the very mechanism that drives the entire world economy – Adam Smith’s Invisible Hand. Many people have tried to control society, corner markets like Jim Fisk, or fix prices and create draconian laws. Nothing but nothing can stop the Invisible Hand for it even took down Communism and it is now hard at work taking down Socialism that we can see in the Scottish vote attempting to freedom.

Well it is also hard at work in technology. There has been huge blow-back to the NSA. They have set the world on a course of global war turning friends into enemies, but they have worked hard at the total destruction of the US economy hunting down capital and infiltrating technology to spy on everyone and everything in their paranoia Stalinist state where they just cannot sleep at night worrying someone is doing something dangerous – like free thinking.

Apple has announced that it is making it impossible for the company to turn over data from most iPhones or iPads to police — even when they have a search warrant — taking a hard new line as tech companies attempt to blunt allegations that they have too readily participated in government efforts to collect user information.

This bold new move is the Invisible Hand for they will be driven out of business by the NSA. Even I will switch to an Apple iPhone with this news. Apple announced with the publication of a new privacy policy tied to the release of Apple’s latest mobile operating system, iOS 8, that taking an engineering solution to fight back makes sense. Instead of endless fake binding court orders that only rule in favor of government, Apple has reworked its latest encryption in a way that prevents even Apple or anyone other than the device’s owner from gaining access to the vast amount of user data stored in smartphones or in tablet computers. This is a great step and one that may send their sales soaring.
