Apple Does Privacy Right!

Technology Obsession Commentary by Mitch Santell

Apple iPhone Xr Will Be A Hot Seller in 2018/2019

Every year Apple parades it’s the newest version of the iPhone. After the official pitch and presentation by Apple, I notice that there are three kinds of articles that come out regarding the latest technology upgrades.

The first kind of article will explain how Apple has lost its edge and they used to be better when Steve Jobs was alive.

The second kind of article will explain how these are the best Apple products ever.

The third kind of article will tell you the reason to switch to Windows or Samsung or some other type of system.

The one thing that most people don’t get is this: Apple does not use their customer data for marketing purposes. Tim Cook says that “privacy is a right,” provided to its customers. As a customer, this gives me so much comfort that while I have seriously looked at products like the Samsung Note 9 and the new Google Pixel Phone 3 coming out, it is what Apple does best! Apple protects customer data.

Protecting customer data is the number 1 reason I keep going back to Apple, Inc.

Parting shot: Ever notice how most Apple customers will pick a particular product and say that “this is the best product that Apple ever made.” Right now I have an Apple iPhone 7plus that works perfectly, and I anticipate that I’ll keep it for at least one more year.

The big seller? I think that Apple’s new iPhone Xr with a starting price of 749.00 dollars USD. This phone is remarkable for what it does, and the phone is at the right price point.


Apple’s privacy stance is a huge ‘competitive advantage’ over Facebook and Google (AAPL)

Apple’s business model focuses primarily on making money through its hardware, instead of on internet and software, which creates a heavy reliance on advertising for revenue. That makes it largely insulate the company from the European Union’s strict privacy protection laws. 

“Although Apple sometimes speaks of privacy on moral grounds—Tim Cook says ‘privacy is a fundamental human right’—its business model makes emphasizing privacy easier than for Google or Facebook,” Steven Milunovich, a UBS analyst, wrote in a note to clients.

Google and Facebook, on the other hand, will likely feel more pain because of their heavy reliance on advertising to drive revenues, Milunovich says. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which goes into effect on May 25, will restrict the kinds of data that companies can collect and requires consumers to opt-in to marketing campaigns, as well as give users more of a choice in what they would like to disclose. A Deutsche Bank analyst said the law could even wipe out as much as $2 billion from Google’s revenues, for instance.

By contrast, Apple’s privacy policy does not allow its users’ data to be shared for marketing purposes, and it could turn out to be the company’s biggest “competitive advantage,” Milunovich says.

Life Outside Your Comfort Zone…

The ability to take risk is in all of us. I am willing to take risk all the time just because I experience a world that has substantially changed.

The fundamental pillars of society are falling away and leading to a new culture that so many cannot put their finger on.

There has never been a better time to spread your wings and try something new. May this blog posting inspire you as much as it did me!

It All Comes Down To You

Commentary On Leaving The Team Life Style by Mitch Santell with a hat tip to RR 

Living in a world that is continually going insane is not for the faint of heart.

For many years I sincerely sought the use of teams and was continually looking for solutions on how to best coordinate an outfit of positive players.

Now that world is gone and it is now all up to you. You can do it!

NWO Eye and Hand 2018
Yes, you can remove the New World Oder.

REMOVING THE NEW WORLD ODOR

This is about spiritual survival in a world gone insane.

We have a tendency to feel helpless, unable to affect faraway events. In fact, we are on the front lines. The New World Odor wants our mind and soul. We fight back by dedicating ourselves to God instead.

First we have to short-circuit their two main control systems: sex and money. We can direct our sex drive by confining it to a monogamous relationship. We can escape the money compulsion by living within our means, and disciplining ourselves so money is a minor concern.

Henry David Thoreau said, “A man is rich in proportion to the number of things he can afford to leave alone.”

The truly rich man is the one who does not think about money. By this standard many billionaires are paupers. In fact, the more money a person has, the harder it is to think of anything else.

A CONCENTRATION CAMP IN THE MIND

How long has it been since you felt happy? Yes, it rankles that pathetic scoundrels control the world. But man is not the measure of all things. No matter what happens on earth, God is the only Reality. The earth is like a postage stamp. Look beyond man and focus on spiritual reality: beauty, goodness, justice and love.

Expect The Unexpected

Inspiration by Mitch Santell

Only Change Remains The Same. Right now in Washington D.C., I am witnessing a soft civil war as the hearings for Judge Brett Kavanaugh seem a bit out of control.

When I read this blog posting this morning, I had to reblog it because the only thing that remains constant in life is change.

May this posting inspire you as much as it does me.

Gareth Roberts

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from working in marketing for eight years, it’s that stuff happens.

Let’s face it.

No matter how prepared we are, we often end up thrown off guard.

When things happen differently to how we predicted.

When things don’t go to plan; even if they’re planned well.

It happens often in marketing.

I’ll explain.

Nearly 200 years ago, The Whitehouse was set on fire.

The British Army moved in on Washington DC, burning everything in sight.

Just before this attack, the British sieged the state of Maryland.

America’s last line of defense at Bladensburg was overthrown.

Paving the way for the British to invade the capital.

President James Madison had already left with the American Constitution and the Declaration of Independence.

The War of 1812 started two years before as the Americans declared war on the British.

But they weren’t really prepared for war. They…

American University Brainwash Agenda

Commentary That Is Not Politically Correct by Mitch Santell

girls staring iphones

There is no greater reprogramming device that a human can use than attending an American University.

Teachers and administrators in their ivory towers are living in a protected world of “political correctness.”

In the past attending a University was about building a foundation of knowledge, debate, exploration and authentic dialogue with professors, fellow students, and rival schools.

Most students rather than having an authentic dialogue with professors learn how to manipulate their teacher, so they get a passing grade.

Most of my followers at AfterHollywood.Online are outside of the USA, so I can openly state that I see and have experienced the American University System as a “Corporate Re-Educational Camp” that prepares our young to be cloned off repeaters directly.

You can be so politically correct, that you are no earthly good. Don’t be afraid to go to a trade school or intern or become an apprentice. Life has a lot to offer. Do your own thinking mate!



If you haven’t noticed, universities are not places of invigorating inquiry and debate. They are stagnant backwaters that reek of moral compromise and disillusionment. There are hundreds of them we have never heard of – comfortable sinecures and hotbeds for sports.Mankind is groping in the dark. “All we know is the wind that blows,” Thoreau wrote. Our false confidence is based on material progress and technology, which Thoreau calls “improved means to unimproved ends.”

Humanities education today is a placebo, a substitute for a true education. It is indoctrination which qualifies you for employment.

Students should eschew the humanities and social sciences. They should only take practical programs like sciences, engineering, computers, pharmacy, commerce etc. which are not ideological and guarantee employment. 

The world will not be saved by acts of God but acts of men representing God. Our duty is to take spiritual ideals seriously in our personal lives and bring them into the world. The cost of rejecting God is to become slaves of very bad men.

Is Blogging Really Tedious?

One of the best written pieces that I have found on Blogging. May it help you as much as it did me! Have a nice Labor Day weekend!

Renard's World

We have all heard the saying, “Blogging is a lot of hard work.”

Is that saying a true one?

Or is it a myth?

If you were to choose ten bloggers randomly and ask them, “Is blogging really a lot of hard work?”

The majority of them would probably say, “Yes!”

Now, I believe that there are certain factors that can make blogging easy or hard for a blogger.

So, let us discover what those factors are together.

Can We Hold America Together?

A commentary today on YouTube said the following:

“The people of the world are sick and tired of being set against each other by powerful criminals who want us divided so they can continue to rape, steal from and exploit us.

Currently the gravest threat to the world is the corrupt mainstream media who has been taken over by a powerful cabal. They have been lying to us for decades, twisted our minds and led us down a path of darkness. The evidence is all around you.

The only way we can defeat this evil is by removing their power and turning them off. They are named the “Mockingbird Media” after a criminal operation of the same name to infiltrate journalism and take control of the narratives.

The only way out of this prison is to read the crumbs dropped via the NSA Intelligence Program otherwise known as Q.”

The truth about ‘Selfishness’

You are reading one of the most crucial blog postings that I will repost in 2018. Why? Read it, and you will know why. Sometimes we can care so much for others that we end up drowning ourselves in the process.

The Darkest Tunnel

Picture this:

You are stranded in the middle of the ocean, desperately trying to keep yourself afloat as you scramble for air in the smothering darkness.

The night is quiet around you, the world submerged in an ominous silence.

The sounds of your heavy breathing and your hands flailing in the water are the only things that pierce through the quiet.

The vast expanse of the inky blue sea is all you can see, along with a single narrow plank floating a few meters away from you.

What will you do?

You swim to the plank and save yourself from a sure death by using the wood to keep you afloat.

But your choice isn’t that simple.

You’re not alone.

I’m there along with you, scrambling for the same air you fill your lungs with and my eyes are frozen on the same plank that yours are riveted on.

It…

World Happiness Report 2018: See the world’s 18 happiest countries

An article I found of great interest by Mitch Santell

Happiness index 2018

Want to be happy? The Nordic nations seem to have it all figured out.

The cold countries of northern Europe again dominated the annual World Happiness Report, released March 14. Finland ranked as the happiest country in the 2018 report, followed by Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Switzerland.

Published by the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network, the rankings are based on people’s assessments of their well-being in Gallup World Poll surveys. The top nations, the report says, “tend to have high values for all six of the key variables that have been found to support well-being: income, healthy life expectancy, social support, freedom, trust and generosity.”

Check out the top 18 of the 156 countries below — and see where the United States turns up.

Do something new🎆

August could be your best month ever to start something new.

Living what you love

We all have dreams, goals, objectives we have set before us. We all have that dream self employing business we wish to start up. We have drawn knowledge from both schooling and experience. We read books over and over and over again. And at some point, we work. Working what everyone else is working. Sooner or later, comfort doing the usual creeps in. Not long than we can notice, we work and spend. And there, our lives goes in circles and circles.

Time passes, but our acheivement is not propotionate to time passed. Why???…. We need to stop doing the usual. Try out something else. The greatest of people who have achieved are not people who dwelt on a source of income for so long. They are those who understood the principle of adopting various income source to generator more and more of it….

I recently attended a seminar that…
