Tim Cook talks privacy and banning Alex Jones in Vice interview
Following a summer that's seen Apple launch three new iPhones and dodge most of the scrutiny that has been enveloping Facebook and Google, Apple CEO Tim Cook sat down with Vice's Elle Reeve for a typically Apple interview. Conducted in the Apple Store built into Grand Central Station in New York, the interview covered privacy, compliance with foreign governments, and banning hate speech from platforms, three of the most hot-button items right now.
Cook's interview market the first time that we've heard Apple explain its banning of Alex Jones, which happened in early August. Apple's move to take down Jones's podcast was a catalyst for the rest of the tech industry, which followed Apple's move in short order.
