Here is a nice writeup on everyone’s favorite Defense Contractor – Lockheed Martin.
My regular paranoid self would normally say to be cautious, and start boycotting Lockheed Martin, afterall, if this article is to be believed, (and it is on the internet, it must be true), then Lockheed Martin is the equivalent of a company that I should avoid.
But you are forgetting one major point. Lockheed Martin is a Defense Contractor. They are completely, or partially responsible for developing, making, and supplying the United States Military.
While Lockheed Martin itself is only a 15 year old company, the Lockheed Corporation is nearly 100 years old, and is responsible for some of the greatest pieces of Military hardware in the US’s arsenal.
So when you get worried about Lockheed Martin taking your information, just rest alittle easier and remember that if it wasn’t them, it would be some Chinese company anyway.
I had planned to do a nice long post about this, and the company, but it slowly evolved into just a history lesson of Lockheed, and all the awesome things they’ve done over the last 100 years. I figured only me would really enjoy reading that, so I just stopped.
