Where did Apple get its content?

Everything was fun and cool until they showed generative image creation that spits out slop “resembling” (strong word) other people; and in this post, everything was cool until they mentioned how – surprise! – Applebot had already indexed web content to train their model without publishers’ consent, who can only opt out now.

John nailed my sentiment.

The slop part had me rolling my eyes. To know Apple scraped data like the rest is frustrating.
