Apple iOS 7 is Just Like ObamaCare

131002-obamacare-apple-ios7-launchThe president compared ObamaCare’s rocky rollout favorably to Apple’s launch of  iOS 7.0.2. Really. Well, they both do take fingerprints, operate in a cloud, and spy on us.

“Consider that just a couple of weeks ago, Apple rolled out a new mobile operating system, and within days, they found a glitch, so they fixed it.”

A bug that allowed unauthorized users to get past the new iPhone’s fingerprint protected lock screen was fixed. President Obama promises the federal government, proven so nimble in the past, will do likewise.

Apple and ObamaCare the Same

Kathleen Sebelius got into the act saying, “…hopefully you’ll give us the same slack you give Apple”.

Rand Paul said the Senate ought to apologize for the dog and pony show, but Carl Levin was having none of that as he took a crack at American pensions and 401ks by insisting that Apple send more money to foreign countries.

Steve Jobs is resigning as CEO at Apple, a company he started with Steve Wosniak 1976.  The company now reportedly has more cash on hand than the U.S. government.  Ok, bad example, you probably do too.  Anyway, Jobs is responsible for the personal computer as we know it today, as well as smart phones, iPads, movie animation, the music industry, and God knows what else.. He really did change the world.  Here’s how Walt Mossberg, the WSJ tech guru, put it,

…Mr. Jobs, in multiple stages of his business career, changed global technology and media in multiple ways on multiple occasions. And that changed the way people live.

Call Forward Your Life

Isn’t it cool that you can track your lost I-phone.  Um, how does that happen?

It turns out your I-Phone has a stalker app.  It watches your every move and records the information in a database.

Then it watches you late at night.
