WARNING VPN USERS! DOES APPLE KNOW ABOUT THIS?
Facbook watches EVERYTHING YOU DO – VPN data all routed through Facebook Servers
. . . and yet ANOTHER reason you should use IoT OtG!
Seriously, if you read my blog you will find out I am a very sarcastic person, but not when I tell you I think we have reached a tipping point, and I commend Apple for always putting people’s privacy first. I believe in the same thing(hence IoT OtG), and hopefully they can clarify if HomeKit is susceptible to this type of monitoring, if I find where they do protect against this type of behavior I will post it here.
Both free versions of the app should also be safe, because they use local IP’s and have no reason to leave your local network. Both watch apps and Pi One Button Remote will also be secure.
Yay! I don’t have to buy a new watch!
It’s like going to one of those electronic stores and paying the place to throw away one of their scam products for them)
It also gives me a flashback to when the first iPhone came out.
My first phone was a Nokia candy bar phone, it was for work, because at the time I wouldn’t give you $1 for the phones that existed. The only way I would have a phone back then is so I didn’t have to walk to call a tow truck when my car broke down.
Then I got this phone
And I KNEW we would be where we are today, and I was Obsessed!
Screen size was awesome, and WiFi a (WiFi a BABY!) no bluetooth (actually a blessing). AND! I could terminal server into Windows Machines! GOOD BYE LAPTOP!
BUT! it was 2G, which was fine at the time till, 3G came out, then it started getting slow.
Then HTC released another version the following year that had a slide down keyboard, bluetooth, and WiFi b, but it was still 2G so not too big of a deal.
Then HTC SCREWED THE POOCH! They came out with this thing:
I bought one a couple of years ago just so I can remember how bad the thing really was.
BUT! it was 3G! Fast Fast Fast! and you could plug it into a laptop and tether your data connection. But man, did that screen SUCK!
But I knew today would come, so I would check Engadget, ALL THE TIME, looking for the new phone that would finally put us back on the right path, but HTC just kept putting out the same crap, with a little faster processor and a little more memory, over, and over, and over. (after reading about the making of the iPhone, I bet this is what they were thinking too)
“The first person to make a phone with a 3+ inch screen, I will be buying it!” I said.
Touche Steve Jobs!
Out comes the first iPhone, 3+ inch screen, iPod built in, WooHoo! 2G . . . . . Uhhhhhhh WHAT!
I had this phone 4 years ago!
So needless to say I didn’t buy the first iPhone, and saved all kinds of money. ( I bought the 3G)
That’s exactly what the Apple Watch LTE feels like.
Oh, and by the way, DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN MAKE CALLS WITH GOOGLE HOME? If not check out The Verge, they have about 5 stories about it.
But anyway, If you have never worked on a office environment, let me tell you, you hear this all the time.
“Hey, could you hang up and call me back on SPEAKER PHONE!” NOT!
It’s like trying to talk to someone while you are on a moving boat. That is why everyone has headsets.
The Echo, the product you would never buy for yourself.
Sooooo transparent, all I can see is a pair of eyeballs and a big pile of cash.
Uugh! I just got kind of sick to my stomach, how much does it cost to MAKE an Echo Dot?
