Woz compares the cloud and PRISM to communist Russia

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year ago

An anonymous reader writes "Some journalists run into Steve Wozniak at the airport and asked him about iOS 7 and PRISM, where he made an interesting comparison about how the US is becoming what it once feared most.

In communist Russia "you couldn't own anything, and now in the digital world you hardly own anything anymore. You've got subscritpions and you already said ok, ok, agree and you agree that every right in the world belongs to them and you got no rights and anything you put in the cloud, you don't even know", says Woz. "Ownership was what made America different than Russia"."

Given Mr Wozniak's position in a multinational that is the embodiment of what he disagrees with this video will just confuse most of Apple's customers.
