Apple Patents Ads Based On Your Bank Balances

The United States Patent and Trademark Office has awarded Apple a patent on targeted ad technology based on how much money is in your bank account. eek!

Just when you thought Apple wasn’t integrated into your life enough, the company just won a patent for a system that targets ads based on how much money people have. This is the same Apple that’s promised not to monetize your data. As Tim Cook said last year: "You’re not our product." Until you are, apparently.
