I’m speaking to you from Sili­con Val­ley, whe­re some of the most pro­mi­nent and suc­cess­ful com­pa­nies have built their busi­nes­ses by lul­ling their custo­mers into com­pla­cen­cy about their per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on. They’re gobb­ling up ever­ything they can learn about you and try­ing to mone­ti­ze it. We think that’s wrong. And it’s not the kind of com­pa­ny that Apple wants to be.“

Hat Tim Cook beim CFA-Din­ner des EPIC gesagt laut „The Ver­ge“. Gleich­zei­tig hat Insta­gram Wer­bung in Nut­zer-Feeds und Pin­te­rest sei­ne neu­en Buy-it-But­tons ange­kün­digt. So ein Zufall aber auch. Goog­le Pho­tos nicht zu ver­ges­sen. Noch­mal Tim Cook, die­ses Mal zitiert von „Tech­Crunch“:

We belie­ve the custo­mer should be in con­trol of their own infor­ma­ti­on. You might like the­se so-cal­led free ser­vices, but we don’t think they’re worth having your email, your search histo­ry and now even your fami­ly pho­tos data mined and sold off for god knows what adver­ti­sing pur­po­se. And we think some day, custo­mers will see this for what it is.”
