Tim Cook slams across the San Bernardino case, calling it “very rigid”

In a comprehensive interview on issues such as politics, climate change, and discussions he had with President Trump, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the San Bernardino case was "very rigid" and should have gone to court. The chef spoke at the Time 100 Summit and said he wanted the case to go to court because the facts showed that the government acted in a "very dishonest way" against the Cupertino-based technology company. "I wish the case would have gone to court, to be honest, it was released the day before", Cook told the interviewer Nancy Gibbs as the two discussed secrecy and unity encryption in the United States "And now after the inspector general reports have come out, our worst fear has been confirmed that it was a very rigid case to begin with, and so I think it was not the government's finest hour, I personally never saw the government's apparatus moving towards a company like it did here in a very dishonest way .

In a comprehensive interview on issues such as politics, climate change, and discussions he had with President Trump, Apple CEO Tim Cook said the San Bernardino case was “very rigid” and should have gone to court.

The chef spoke at the Time 100 Summit and said he wanted the case to go to court because the facts showed that the government acted in a “very dishonest way” against the Cupertino-based technology company.

“I wish the case would have gone to court, to be honest, it was released the day before”, Cook told the interviewer Nancy Gibbs as the two discussed secrecy and unity encryption in the United States “And now after the inspector general reports have come out, our worst fear has been confirmed that it was a very rigid case to begin with, and so I think it was not the government’s finest hour, I personally never saw the government’s apparatus moving towards a company like it did here in a very dishonest way . “[1

9659003] Cooks continued to say that he felt like the naive guy who felt as such did not happen, and added they [the U.S. government]] were trying to prevent a discussion and debate on integrity.

“I hoped it would go much further than that,” Cook continued. “It has been repeated and it has occurred in no other country in the world, which made me much more disappointed with how it happened in our country. But I think the daily US secret is much more important here in 2019 than it was when we went through their case. “

Last year, the Justice Department concluded that the FBI inadvertently misled Congress that it had gone through all possible attempts to access the iPhone used by one of the persons responsible for San Bernardino terrorist attacks.

Climate change, focusing on politics, not politics

Cook also touched several other areas that have affected Apple in recent years, including investing in the political debate before adding that the iPhone manufacturer has no policy action committee.

“We focus on politics, not politics,” Cook said. “We are not focusing on politics and I realize that everything, unfortunately today, tends to break down that way, but we focus on politics itself, not politics … … he is probably not known to many people here, but Apple does not have a PAC. Apple is probably the only big company I would think or one of the few that doesn’t have a PAC. I refuse to have one because it shouldn’t exist. “

Cook also said there should be boundaries if who donates to which candidate should be transparent: 19659003] “I think of people who should be able to donate or people who can vote, right? ” And we should set a limit on what it is and perhaps its current limits. Maybe it’s another border and it should be open And so I’ve never donated any money to a PAC person. Every donation I have ever made is public. n stands for public scrutiny, people can decide whether they like it or they don’t like it, and I do for my personal self, not for the company. “

The technology chief added that Apple has donated” Zero “to political candidates.

The 58-year-old Cook, having had talks with President Trump, discussed a wide range of issues, including trade, said that the government should not be looked at to solve all problems and that both the private sector and academia should also play a role.

“I think it takes the public sector, private sector and academia to work together to trying to solve some of these huge problems, “he said at the summit.” Climate change will not be resolved by the government, it’s just an example, right. So we go up easily and participate in the conversations. And because we think how we do what we say says as much about us as what we did. “

Cook was asked about the conversations he had with Trump and refused to talk about it and said” no matter who the president is, “he does not think it is right to disclose private calls.

He added that there are several issues important to Apple, including getting the DACA fixed fix the immigration system, including backlogs for short trading;

Cook has also expressed support for further regulation of the technology sector, saying that although General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is “not ideal” , it is an area where Europe is ahead of the United States, in terms of protecting the user’s privacy and data.

“GDPR is not ideal, but GDPR was a step in the right direction “said.” And this is on the privacy side of course. I don’t think it’s the same at all. I think there are lots of things that didn’t do what they needed to do. But I think this is a step in the right direction. “

Cook added that he thinks it is possible that some form of regulation protects privacy and data comes to the United States, and notes that Apple” strongly advocates regulation because I do not see any other way at this time “.
