Don’t ask Apple why their iThings don’t have removable batteries. They will tell you everything except the truth.
They will tell that it’s because of design and manufacturing and blablabla…
The real truth is that they want to track you and the only reason how you can stop them from doing so on your iFraud or other iBad device is to remove the battery.
But, what a surprise, you cannot! Your “tracking device” cannot have a removable battery. No way.
Apple has non-removable batteries on products you can carry on (I must admit that Macbook Pro battery cannot be officially removed, but you can do it in a couple of minutes if you really want).
And unfortunately a lot of other companies try to embrace this trend of the modern day surveillance tactics.
When I read articles like this http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-19736_7-57367017-251/its-time-to-kiss-that-removable-smartphone-battery-goodbye/ I am sick of how stupid and easy to manipulate people are.
And if you think I am paranoid, I am not. I had a personal experience 2 years ago. My “employer” was tracking me sometimes during the day while I was working for a state department in my country. I won’t tell you the details (it’s a little complicated how I find out he was tracking me), but long story short, he simply always “magically” appears somewhere nearby and what is important without making a single call. However, after I start removing the battery from my device he “magically” stops showing where I was.
So, turn off your iPhone or Macbook Air and you would be safe. Or be a realist and read something like this http://radar.oreilly.com/2011/04/apple-location-tracking.html .
Shame on you, Apple! You are tracking people and saving all their activities! Shame on you!!!
