MOSCOW, Oct 4 — PRIME. Apple CEO
Tim cook does not hide that is dissatisfied with how some technology companies work with data consumers, according to Dow Jones.
This time he returned to this theme in an interview with Vice News, which criticized — without naming, however, directly from these companies — Facebook
and Google, because they share user data with third parties. Both companies insist that they need to collect more data to support their business models that are heavily dependent on advertising revenue.
“Some companies try to convince you: ‘I need all your data to my service worked better’. Do not believe them, — said cook. — Who would you do or say, they are messing with you head.”

In an interview with Vice cook confirmed the Apple principle of “collect less data,” adding that the company considers the protection of personal information, “one of the most important issues of the XXI century”.
