https://www.abetterwrist.com/2019/11/th ... ustry.htmlThe plot was as devious as it was destructive — or would have been except for a brave whistleblower at Nation Shield, a cyber security company.
The whistleblower, Anthony Gardner, will tell his story exclusively on 60 Minutes. Here’s a preview:
In late 2019, major smartwatch companies, including Apple, Samsung, Huawei, Motorola, and Xohi conspired to introduce a computer virus into the photo storage services operated by Google, Dropbox, Flickr, SmugMug, Imgur, and, ironically, also Apple. The virus was designed to replace images of wristwatches with black circles. Using AI, the virus could adapt to recognize all watch brands so that no image would escape its wrath. Only the watch would be affected; the rest of the photo would remain unaltered.
