Apple's new tech set to dominate the globe...

The Building circular — an iron cage, glazed — a glass lantern, about the size of Ranelagh — The Prisoners in their Cells, occupying the Circumference — The Officers... the Centre. By Blinds, and other contrivances, the Inspectors concealed from the observation of the Prisoners: hence the sentiment of a sort of invisible omnipresence. — The whole circuit reviewable with little, or, if necessary, without any, change of place.

— Jeremy Bentham, Panopticon

Privacy is a growing concern these days.

Especially online.

It’s sad that the younger generations have never known privacy.

They’ve given it away willingly to the Big Tech gods in return for nothing (sometimes for money).

In many ways, they never had a choice.

There used to be a time when privacy was cherished above all else.

The American dream was to live freely without anyone intruding on your life.

But now nearly every day we feel the algorithm closing in.

Talk about an obscure topic or product with a friend and all of a sudden you’re getting ads on your phone for it.

It seems like Big Tech knows what you want before you even think about it.

And that’s a big problem.

Steve Jobs wasn’t wrong when he said, “Every once in a while, a revolutionary product comes along that changes everything.”

We never could have imagined just how big the iPhone would become.

By now we all know that it’s become the ultimate spy device.

The all-seeing eye...

The modern-day panopticon...

And consumers are fed up.

We didn’t sign up for this.

That’s why the era of the smartphone is about to come to and end, and anyone not on board will miss out on the investment opportunity of a lifetime.

As we go into the new year, think about this...

What if the future of tech isn’t in your hand but in your head?

Get off Your Phone!

It may be hard to believe, but smartphones are quickly becoming irrelevant.

Producer and journalist Mark Boal talked about this on Joe Rogan's podcast last week.

When covering Big Tech in the ’90s, he said...

At that time, I was really concerned about corporations spying on people, gathering people’s information and using that to target them with products... The reason that’s bad I think just socially, is it leads to this winnowing of what your world view is... but then what I didn’t anticipate... was how many people were willing to just give their privacy away... just throw it away. Yeah, it’s fucked to be spied on, but the truth is most people are dying to have their lives shared with the world... and there’s this tremendous amount of exhibitionism and this tremendous desire to share every aspect of the self... and that is kind of unprecedented in human history. That’s never happened before. It’s like a giant social experiment.

Obviously, bad actors are capitalizing on this social experiment to make money.

Social media apps like TikTok are being used to spy on and manipulate anyone who uses them.

It’s even been said that the app has access to any computer or device on the same network, so you don’t even have to have the app downloaded on your phone to be targeted by it.

That’s why U.S. lawmakers introduced a bill this month that would ban the app.

According to a press release from Sen. Marco Rubio, he said, "TikTok’s Chinese parent company, ByteDance, is required by Chinese law to make the app’s data available to the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). From the FBI director to FCC commissioners to cybersecurity experts, everyone has made clear the risk of TikTok being used to spy on Americans... There is no more time to waste on meaningless negotiations with a CCP puppet company. It is time to ban Beijing-controlled TikTok for good."

It’s not only the data leaks and security issues but also the risk they pose to our health as individuals and a society.

Even video game companies are taking heat. According to The New York Times, "The Federal Trade Commission on Monday announced a $520 million settlement with Epic Games, the developer of popular video games like Fortnite and Fall Guys, over charges that the company illegally collected information from children and, separately, tricked millions of players into making unintentional purchases."

The great social media experiment has failed, but Americans are waking up.

According to a recent Axios article, "Trust in traditional media has declined to an all-time low... For the first time ever, fewer than half of all Americans have trust in traditional media, according to data from Edelman’s annual trust barometer shared exclusively with Axios. Trust in social media has hit an all-time low of 27%. Fifty-six percent of Americans agree with the statement that ‘Journalists and reporters are purposely trying to mislead people by saying things they know are false or gross exaggerations.’ Fifty-eight percent think that 'most news organizations are more concerned with supporting an ideology or political position than with informing the public.'"

And all that information is presented neatly to you on your little smartphone.

But the social media crackdown paves the way for new forms of tech and social media to gain market share, ones that we'll have full control of using our minds.

Remember, disruption is key.

Whoever disrupts the smartphone industry’s dominance is going to mint a fortune.

And investors will want to get on board before it’s too late.

Big Tech Drops Big Hints

We’re starting to hear chatter of a new type of device.

Elon Musk — the man behind neurotechnology company Neuralink — already stated, “Humans must become cyborgs if they are to stay relevant in a future dominated by artificial intelligence.” He thinks we’re already basically cyborgs.

And Apple has been secretly working on a brand-new device for at least 15 years now known as "Project Oasis."

Apple CEO Tim Cook says this device will be "the next big thing [that] will pervade our entire lives."

But if Apple's going to make this tech work, it will need a huge range of suppliers backing it.

Our tech expert Keith Kohl has identified an overlooked tech company that has a 91% market share of the cornerstone technology for this device.

And we won't have to wait long, as Keith expects Apple to announce this mysterious new device next month.

Once you hear this story from the mainstream media, this opportunity will be long gone.

Have a very Merry Christmas!
