Don’t get me wrong, Mac OS X Yosemite is a beautiful operating system. The new, diaphanous, frosted window frames are lovely and the flat UI is svelte and sexy. But beautiful comes at a cost and in this case Apple is furtively compromising your privacy.
Have you ever heard of a wild animal called the Slow Loris? It is unequivocally one of the cutest animals on earth yet it is still capable of giving humans anaphylactic shock.
This is what Apple is doing with Yosemite. The exterior is beautiful but the insides are deadly.
That’s embarrassing to admit… the US is culpable for spamming the world. <shudder>
So SPAM is definitely an issue. I wonder if anyone ever approximated the dollars being wasted by employee hours devoted to deleting spam? How many annual work hours are eroded because employees spend time deleting Viagra ads, refinancing mortgage emails, fake emails with URGENT & CONFIDENTIAL in the subject and ghoulish gimmicks to protect your computer from viruses?
I don’t know… I really don’t – but one thing I do know:
Spam sucks and today we’re going to kick its ass. Come with me.
