Customers visiting one of Apple’s popular stores in New York City got treated to a horrific sight on Valentine’s Day: a giant image of a pregnant Donald Trump standing naked in the loving embrace of Vladimir Putin.
Alternative facts and fake news have become so pervasive in the the we consume lately that Apple CEO Tim Cook says it’s “one of today’s chief problems.”
During an interview this week in the U.K., Cook talked about the challenges tech companies face on how to combat stories that perpetuate false information without hurting the free flow of ideas on the internet.
During his visit to Europe, Tim Cook received an honorary degree from the University of Glasgow. Following the presentation ceremony, the Apple CEO took the opportunity to speak out against President Donald Trump’s currently suspended immigration order, which banned travel from seven Muslim-majority countries.
“We have employees that secured a work visa, they brought family to the U.S., but happened to be outside the U.S. when the executive order was issued and all of a sudden their families were affected,” Cook said, describing the situation as a “crisis.”
There was good news all around as iPhone sales, services and even the Mac all performed better than predicted. During today’s earnings call, Tim Cook and Apple CFO Luca Maestri revealed some of the secret sauce that made Apple’s earnings one for the history books.
Tim Cook makes it clear that Apple is staunchly opposed to President Donald Trump’s temporary travel ban on people from seven Muslim-majority countries, according to a new interview.
“More than any country in the world, this country is strong because of our immigrant background and our capacity and ability as people to welcome people from all kinds of backgrounds,” Cook told The Wall Street Journal. “That’s what makes us special. We ought to pause and really think deeply through that.”
President Donald Trump’s executive order banning immigrants from some Islamic countries from entering the United States has been met with a flood of tech companies making record-breaking donations to the American Civil Liberties Union.
