This is FUD, plain and simple. Implying that Apple is as bad (or even close) as Microsoft is disingenuous. A big fuss was made when Spotlight searches were sent along with a rough location estimate to Apple, who used the data (without the IP address) to execute a Bing search. This functionality can be turned off very easily in Yosemite and El Capitan. There is no massive phoning home in OS X like what occurs with Windows 10. The Spotlight search really isn't any different than the "controversy" over searches in Ubuntu.
