I wasn't being sarcastic,  why would cook open his mouth? he has practically nothing to gain from it. 


QuicK and DirtY. Read the CoC it's like a guide on how not to be moron.  Also I don't have an issue with the VS series.

Sometimes I miss contractions like n't on the end of words like wouldn't, couldn't and shouldn't.    Please don't be a dick,  make allowances when reading my posts.

Well, ask Facebook for it, I don't got one for you. Does Facebook only serve your friends? Or is it available to the general public, b/c no one asked about your friends.

You're the one who offered.  You're now in a legal cookie agreement.  Plus, they'd only give me a tracking cookie.

I can't help you understand yourself. 

So because you don't understand something you assume I don't either?  that's not how it works.

That was laid out by Steve Jobs, tell me any new products that Apple has made (truly new) that Cook as done to reshape Apple?  I can't think of one.  iPhone was the last "greatest" invention by Apple, which was done by Steve Jobs.  If it wasn't for him and understanding that, that product would not have succeeded in the computer space and shifted over to a cell phone where the pricing of it was justifiable, it would never have succeeded.  After the iPhone was successful, the apple app store took over.  That is what helped Apple to grow so big and keep its leadership.  All of its other products are really not that much of its total revenue.  They have 8% maybe 10% of the total PC market, high margin products yeah but when comparing to other computer companies that is still small potatoes.

To add, Apple has been loosing computer market share. They just haven't been very innovative, Cook has to work at selling things to customers like the macbook has a gimmicky touch bar, we took away functionality by reducing the amount of ports but look it's thinner now. Or how a notch is a feature that shouldn't be hidden, or ditching the 3.5mm jack is a benefit.

Oh you haven't heard then?  we do not exist, we are a conspiracy continent made up so that the people of England thought the convicts were going to a real place,  but the boats were just sailing around the corner and throwing the convicts overboard.    Also on a flat earth the extra weight of Australia would cause the earth to shake like an unbalanced washing machine.  so we can't be here.   But I still want a cookie. :(

I'm just denying everything after this point... cookies are for drug dealers climbing over Mexican walls, and second amendment deniers who crave sweet treats yet not know the consequences.

Neither has anyone else. None of the major technology companies have been innovating lately. 

You'd have to not be paying attention lately,plenty of other laptops out there that have better screens,touchscreens,hardware, and more ports.

Oh man if you think any corporation is not using the tax system to its fullest extent to get tax breaks you have a lot to learn about capitalism. xD 

Mark Zuckerberg can play the corporate game too, all he has to do is spend his way out of it, spread some positive nonsense about how Facebook cares about your privacy, while still paying their taxes. If anything Cook making attack statements is just going to backfire on him, the general public isn't going to give up their Facebook.

Yep, what is he going to gain from all that talk?  No one cares, the shareholders were already happy, and Unless apple has some unpublicized stake in facebook it only serves to draw good attention from  their other endeavors.

Facebook must love the news, I bet investors love it too tbh. 

Short sellers sure do. Anyone able to short has made with facebook more gains than could have possibly be made with crypto in the same time interval, in comparison. Easy 15% gains in a week.

 

I'd rather live in a world without facebook so I'm all about this news.

Defend your favourite shill. Pick between Clinton and Trump Tim and Zuckerberg 


Awareness is key. Never enough, even in the face of futility. Speak the truth as if you may never get to say it again. This world is full of ugly. Change it they say. The only way is to reveal the ugly. To change the truth you must first acknowledge it. Never pretend it isn't there. Never bend the knee.

 

Please quote my post in your reply, so that I will be notified and can respond to it. Thanks.

Look I can see what Cook is saying but people that put their personal shit online, should only blame themselves.  Everyone that uses facebook is an adult or close to it.  Use it responsibly and to what the user feels its OK to share. 

I disagree. Most people aren't aware of what is actually going on and how it can affect them. And yes that goes for the majority of people on this forum too. I mean, just look at all the ignorance surrounding all the data harvesting Microsoft does, which is probably more than Facebook does. Most people probably don't realize how much data Google has on them either.

Its stupid to put things online that people don't want others to use that info. 

It's more complex than that. Info that seems trivial can be used for a lot of different purposes. The picture of your food can tell a lot more about you than you might think, especially when it is used with other small and seemingly non-trivial data.

I don't even understand how people can spend more than 10 minutes a day on it!  Does it give a person anything meaningful?

Well, people seem to enjoy it so, yes. Doing something you like is meaningful.

Time you enjoy wasting is not wasted.

It's funny tim cook saying he wouldn't be in that situation,  that is moot.  He would be in exactly that position if Steven jobs hadn't made apple what it is.   He's literally been flying of the back other peoples work while zukerberg has built his billions from a service that people don't even pay for.    As much as I despise FB I find Tim cooks rhetoric to be a cheap grab and maybe even a bit jealous that Zuk's self built worth is $62Bn while Tim is only worth $400M.   

 

And before anyone says it, giving up personal information is not the same as handing over cash. 

I think Tim's point is that he fundamentally disagrees with that business practice. Pointing how much more money Zuckerberg and going "Tim is so jealous" is not exactly a solid argument either.

Everyone just going "Tim is so jealous" in this thread reminds me of the Justin Beiber fangirls going "you're just jealous of Bieber" when you say you don't like his music.

Not all criticism stems from jealousy, and even if it did it's kind of irrelevant assuming the criticism is valid (which it in this case is).

You can't blame companies for not paying taxes a country doesn't ask for.  

You can however blame them for deliberately setting up a system exploiting loopholes, which Apple clearly has done.

It's morally and ethically wrong.

I don't have a problem saying I think he has envy issues,    I blame the tax agencies and thee governments for leaving the loopholes in.   If I find away to legally avoid paying more tax than I have to it's not ethically wrong, just smart business.

Well, that's an assumption you are making, but even if he is envious it is irrelevant to the points he is making. It's nothing more than an ad hominem attack from you.

If you don't think that is ethically wrong then I don't think you know what ethics are.

Please remember that legal != ethical.

Just because something is legal does not mean it is the right thing to do. Some examples of this would be:

Babies are aborted in China based on gender (usually, the family wants a boy and will abort the baby if they discover it's a girl).

Child brothels in countries with weak or no laws against sexual exploitation of children.

 

I refuse to believe that you think these things are ethically and morally right just because "it's smart to find loopholes in the law".

I know what ethics are.  Don't why you think aborting babies in china equals a company only paying the tax a country asks for.  Some governments choose not to close loopholes for what ever reason best known to them.  It has nothing to do with ethics.
