You Don’t Run Your Computer

Gone are the times of firing up a computer and performing some web browsing, scrolling through social media, or doing a bit of work. Today, a lot of things you do, and nearly everywhere you go, is being tracked. While this isn’t exactly meant as telemetry, it’s functioning as telemetry. Your phone, computer, or nearly any device you use that’s connected to the net is tracking various things. In the newest macOS update, Big Sur, everything you do is logged and sent to Apple. This was first reported on by Jeffrey Paul, with the program Little Snitch. On November 12, 2020, Apple’s hash servers slowed right down, and it affected every iMac connected to the internet. Almost every computer has some kind of hash server so long it is running Mac or Windows. It knows your IP address at every moment, so it knows your location, but this is nothing new. Well, a more significant problem exists.
