Apple Trolls Google & Amazon With Billboard at CES

AdvertisementThe biggest companies in tech have descended on Las Vegas this week for CES 2019.

Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano on Apple touting its privacy policy in a billboard outside of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Apple made it clear to CES attendees that it does not sell user data which Amazon and Google have previously used to sell products, CNBC reported.

But it was Facebook that took the biscuit in April when a whistle-blower revealed slippery CEO Mark Zuckerberg had allowed a political consultancy firm to harvest the personal data of more than 80 million people's profiles.

Disturbing R. Kelly docuseries shows relationship with Aaliyah in a new light
Kelly's genre defining career and playboy lifestyle has been riddled with rumors of abuse, predatory behavior, and pedophilia. The "All Of Me" singer has been praised for his participation, with Hampton calling him a "hero", a title which he rejects.

LG has followed in its recent tradition of pre-announcing many of its biggest CES products in the days ahead of the show.

In fact, that's a bit of an unfair analogy, because even the most creepily needy of lovesick folk stops short of taking out a giant advert on the side of a hotel, and yet that's exactly what Apple has done. But this year, Apple will literally be reminding everyone of 2018's privacy scandals, asking CES visitors how comfortable they are saying "hey Google" to a growing raft of products. Cook has said that private information "is being weaponized" against consumers with "military efficiency".

CES starts Tuesday and runs through Friday. Amazon and Google are expected to be in attendance.
