Apple Just Gave 1.4 Billion iPad, iPhone Users A Reason To Leave Because of Secret Eavesdropping on Conversations

From an article by Gordon Kelly in the Forbes web site:

“Last month The Guardian revealed Apple was employing contractors to listen to and “grade” Siri recordings and they “regularly” heard confidential information from iPhone and iPad users, including medical information, drug deals and recordings of couples having sex. And now a new report from the Irish Examiner has given a sense of scale to what was happening.

“’Contractors in Cork [Ireland] were expected to each listen to more than 1,000 recordings from Siri every shift, before Apple suspended the practice last month,’ explains the Examiner, who got its information from ‘an employee who had their contract abruptly terminated this week.’”
