Apple and Google Team Up to Launch Tracing Technology; 23 Countries Want In

Who are they kidding, Apple and Google already track us, now they just have a reason for it. The scary part is they’re doing it together.

Authorities in 23 countries can’t wait to get access to contact tracking technology from the two tech giants, as they hope it will help them fight the novel coronavirus. The companies are using mobile apps that will be able to reliably log users who are in physical proximity for at least five minutes. A user who later becomes infected with the virus could use the app to automatically and anonymously notify recent contacts.

The data is arguably much more reliable than asking people who they interacted with in recent days.

This might sound like good news, but some countries want more. They want the tech companies to provide them with user location, phone number, and other details. Apple and Google rules bar authorities from requiring residents to use the app.

The move from some freedom to what seems like constant oversight is reminiscent of Earnest Hemingway’s description of how he went bankrupt.

Hemingway said:

“Gradually, and then suddenly.”

    THIS SOUNDS MORE LIKE MARTIAL LAW-WITHOUT USING ARMED FORCES! REMEMBER THE IMPLANT TO CONTROL US ALL? YOU CAN’T FLY , RIDE A BUS, OR ENTER A STORE-UNLESS YOU HAVE THE IMPLANT! THE CORONA VIRUS WAS THE BEGINNING AND NOW WE JUST NEED TO GIVE IN TO AN IMPLANT THAT IDENTIFIES US WHEREVER WE GO! VERY CONVENIENT AND WE ARE SUPPOSED TO ACCEPT THIS ? WHAT HAPPENED TO OUR FREEDOMS UNDER THE BILL OF RIGHTS AND OUR CONSTITUTION? IF THIS IS ACCEPTED, WE DON;T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT WHO WINS THE ELECTION-WE JUST BECAME CONTROLLABLE ROBOTS-UNDER AN OLIGARCHY CAED COMMUNISM!
