Excited about the iPhone 5S announcement today? Well, the NSA is probably sitting back and laughing at you.
According to newly leaked documents from Edward Snowden, the NSA used presentation slides that labeled Apple co-founder Steve Jobs as "Big Brother" and iPhone owners as "zombies." The documents were released via the German news magazine Der Spiegel. We previously reported that the magazine claims that the NSA accesses information from all major types of smartphones, including iPhone geolocation tools and other data. The leaked NSA slides ironically use images from Apple's famous "1984" Super Bowl commercial, which Jobs helped design to show the world that Apple would help customers break out of oppression instead of becoming oppressed in the future, similar to what George Orwell wrote about in his novel, "1984."
"Who knew in 1984... that this would be big brother... and the zombies would be paying customers?" the NSA's slides ask.
Wow. Tell us how you really feel, NSA. Check out the slides below.
