Too Long; Didn't Read

Google and Apple are working together in an unorthodox partnership to create the ultimate privacy buster - a coronavirus tracking app. While contact tracing might seem harmless and necessary, it also may be the very door which subtly moves society into an Orwellian universe we have long feared. While its true that Big Tech may think it is being altruistic (although that is doubtful) all well meaning plans have a big chance of devolving into something far more sinister than what was originally envisioned. At the end of the day, COVID-19 has been far more about who is taking advantage of the general population's fear than it has been about stopping the spread of an out of control pandemic.
