The National Security Agency hinted that Apple and Steve Jobs are controlling and observing the public, while in fact, the agency itself has been involved in spying on Americans’ email and phone data for years.

According to the Huffington Post, the revealed documents indicate that the NSA not only intercepts the web data of users, but also has decryption tools to access smartphones, including iPhone.

A German website, which revealed the NSA documents, obtained slides of the agency’s internal presentation in which images from Apple’s 1984 commercial have been used.

Android was also targeted on by the NSA; special teams of NSA agents began scrutinizing Google’s mobile operating system in 2010, according to documents. To what extent they used the knowledge they gleaned from those examinations was not revealed.
