Few weeks ago before the launch of visitors series on MBC, An ad was broadcasted thought the MBC’s Group channels, with a woman that show up on a white background after losing signal on TV, and said “We Came in Peace!”.; nothing special about that, it’s just an ad!( especially for the V lovers and people whom were waiting for it), but the strange about that is that Aljazeera Tv replies by a report, that said that the MBC channels were hacked by the MOSSAD ( the national intelligence agency of Israel) to show that message and to communicate with Arabian people and to try to change their minds!
Recently another information was broadcasted by the same channel, this time is about Apple and The Iphone.
The Tv report in the video (Arabic only ) aims to prove that the Iphone is used by Apple to spy on the customers and to collect informations about them, their locations and even to use the front and back cameras, the microphone and the sensors to retrieve instant pictures and conversations.
The report is based on apple patent application that describes methods that may enable the iPhone and iPad to “sense” the user, detecting voice prints, faces, activity patterns and even heartbeats. If unauthorised use is detected, then many security measures could be activated.
But what aljazzera missed up is that the informations and data collected aren’t sent to apple but to the owner’s email, to allow him to track his phone, save data remotely or wipe out the device.
Maybe Aljazeera is going to release another rumor with the lunch of HTC Sense 3 which allow the same thing (not totally!), who could know?!?
