Apple already collects a lot of data from their smartphones. Look up when there was this big uproar about how the iPhones would track whenever it would connect to a radio tower and report that location to Apple, thereby giving Apple the approximate location of every iPhone user.

Also, but yeah, seems a bit silly, though privacy is at a minimum nowadays when we store a lot of our information on devices and storage centers we don't actually 'own'.

Its not just Apple, alot of the Apps you download collect data from your phone too.

As to the OP video, they have pretty much used the plot for X-COM: Enemy Unknown for a game that looks like a rip off of Asteroids.

No, I definitely do know.  The freakin' video ends with the sign-off  "One thing is clear, the game is damn good.  Search for Lunar Eclipse.  Available on iPhone and Android devices."

If you click to watch it on YouTube, it's hosted on Pixel Punch's channel, the company who make the game.

The OP is advertising spam.

Secret European cosmos agency? Does that mean ESA? Seems like a lot of trouble to go to since you have to have an apple ID on an IOS device...and that would pretty much allow them to get any data on you. The military simply fly overhead - they can download your entire phone's contents. Useful for catching terrorists.
