Since I’ve upgraded to the new Samsung Galaxy S4, I have never understood why anyone would want an iPhone, but that is beside the point. And I do realize many people are Apple fanatics. But here is a very urgent warning about why you should not buy the iPhone 5S or even upgrade to iOS 7.
I have been shocked that people are waiting in line for what is essentially barely an upgrade with no major benefits. The biggest change is cosmetic; instead of white, it is now the color gold. That brings to mind the disconnect most modern minds have between the color gold and the real thing. Today, Olympic gold medals have almost no gold in them and people proudly show off their “gold” credit cards as a prestige symbol when all it is is a fiat currency debt card colored gold.
Of course, most of those waiting in line are actually homeless people who were paid by someone to stand in line. But it is still strange to see.
An excellent video of the actual prospective purchasers (as far as we can tell) waiting in line for days or weeks for this new phone can be seen here, including a man sleeping with his head in a plastic bag.
It does smell mostly of marketing (possibly even paid for in part by Apple and the U.S. government), as many of the people waiting in line are the aforementioned homeless people being paid to wait in line — along with a smattering of apparently insane people.
That Apple and the U.S. government are in cahoots has already been proven by Edward Snowden and the proof has been published in The Guardian:
The first — and best known — is Prism, a system allowing the NSA easy access to the personal information of non-US persons from the databases of some of the world’s biggest tech companies, including Apple, Google, Microsoft and Yahoo. Later, it emerged Microsoft had worked to circumvent its own encryption to enable NSA access to customer records.
So it is not out of the realm of possibilities that this is a National Security Agency-sponsored event.
There are only two other changes that I can see in the iPhone 5S, aside from the new gold color. This version has a faster processor and it has a fingerprint scanner that can and most likely will send your details directly to the NSA, CIA and U.S. government.
A faster processor is always nice, but that’s literally the only real improvement. The scanner that’s being touted as an improvement is actually just a way for a crony corporatist organization to pass along your online activities and whereabouts to a fascistic government. You have to love these slaves, lining up to be fingerprinted.
The best video we’ve seen on the new iPhone 5N(S)A is here:
And then we saw this. Outside of many Apple stores, New York’s best and finest (ahem), the New York Police Department, were handing out this flyer.
We hope this is not real, but the fact that “avaialble” was misspelled does seem to add credence to it being real — especially with U.S. police departments actually having a policy of hiring people with low IQs.
The Top Information Post reports that numerous people have received this brochure from NYPD.
NYPD cops are in front of Apple stores passing out flyers telling me to update my iOS. Corporation and government never felt so united.

Four uniformed NYPD officers were at my subway stop tonight asking me to upgrade to iOS 7. Not a joke! pic.twitter.com/CGdR2RqtKJ

If it is true, it is amazing that the new iPhone, which for all intents and purposes just takes your fingerprints and uploads them to government databases, has the New York police handing out brochures saying to upgrade to iOS 7.
If you ever needed a wake-up call to the fasco-communist police state of America, this should be one. If you insist on sticking around within U.S. borders as the surveillance state puts on the finishing touches, then at least arm yourselves with the actionable advice to help you cope with it and live as free as possible by signing up for TDV Homegrown.

If you’ve had enough and are ready to get out, make sure to take that vital extra step in diversifying your geopolitical risks by getting a citizenship and passport with a nation-state that isn’t obsessed with tracking you and your activities and taxing you no matter where go.
