Submission + - Apple Takes On Big Brother With Clone-Making Patent->

redletterdave writes: "Apple first pitted itself against "Big Brother" — IBM, in Steve Jobs' eyes — in the famous 1984 Super Bowl ad. Nearly 30 years later, a newly granted patent reveals Apple's plans to take on "Big Brother" again, even if he isn't just one company anymore. Apple is taking on the "Little Brothers" that routinely and covertly collect user data by introducing a new technology that can help users keep their personal information hidden in cyberspace. Apple's assigned technology creates false "clones" of personal information, which are stored and executed via one's iCloud ID, that are designed to throw government agencies and big businesses off the scent of individual, private American citizens. This technique doesn't thwart data collection; instead, it overloads the electronic profiling systems that try to collect your personal information with false clones of your identity."
