Tim Cook On Google And Facebook
Tim Cook, who is now the CEO of Apple, was recently honored as the champion of freedom. This honor took place at the Electronic Privacy Information Center in Washington.
Cook received a standing ovation for all the work he is doing to protect the information of Internet users. After the applause and the congratulations, Cook delivered a powerful speech.
In the beginning of the speech, Cook talked about Apple. He talked about how people who use free Apple services never have to give out their personal information. He pointed out that this should be true for all online companies. If people are using free services and their information is being taken, this should be considered stealing the information of online individuals.
Due to this, Tim Cook had no choice but to bring up Google and Facebook. Regardless of how many people like these services, Cook pointed out that these free online services steal the information of users. That is why advertisements on both services always pertain to the user. Cook said he would like to see this changes so that people are not sucked into buying products they do not want or need; people get sucked into buying unwanted products every single day.
There have not been any comments given from either Google or Facebook. However, Tim Cook is ready for any comments that come his way. He says he will stand by his words because he wants to see Internet users be free. He also wants companies to compete on fair grounds, too.
