are you implying that apple doesn't have petabytes of data about everyone/thing?

no, just that Google are less concerned about the profitability of the few devices they make than they are the value of the data the devices collect

The Monsanto family is rich in seeds, which will be the highest form on currency on this post-apocalyptic corporate Earth.

I have no real skill set so I couldn't not possibly become a citizen of Amazon, there's no doubt I would be a picker at their fulfillment camps and I would honestly rather die. I think the safest bet is Johnson & Johnson. They don't have to "win" the war, every corporate nation would be dependant on us for anaesthetics and pharmaceuticals, especially nearing the end of the war when it would make more long-term sense to heal fighters instead of letting them die.

And they'll leave us alone in our Ghana factories, where I will mix vats of chemicals with a comically large paddle, get a free bar of soap bi-monthly, and sneak in swigs of rubbing alcohol on our daily five minute nourishment breaks.

At Google you will one day search for "Republic of Johnson & Johnson", stare longingly at the dozens of leaked images of our clean and freshly conditioned hair, and then their surveillance team will execute you for wishing for a better life (treason.)

It's not so much that I know what I want is that I know what I don't want.

I don't want to be a picker, I don't want to dig for SIM cards in a Samsung rainforest, and I figure the Johnson & Johnson factories will be well ventilated.
