CEO of Apple, Tim Cook has reportedly said that he might not be in the company for 10 more years.
Cook has said on New York Times’ Sway podcast, “I feel great right now. And the date’s not in sight.”
Cook is 60 right now and when asked if he will be at Apple for 10 more years, this is what he had to say, “But 10 more years is a long time and probably not 10 more years.”
Cook took over as the CEO of Apple in August 2011 and he has been in the company for 23 years.
Cook also mentioned the data privacy and the attack that took place on the US Capitol building on January 6.
Cook said that he is appalled by the amount of data thievery that takes place. To quote him, “I’m appalled by it. And so we’ve got things coming out like a privacy nutrition label. Privacy policies have become these multi-page things that people just blindly say, I agree so that they can go to the next screen and move on. A privacy nutrition label, much like a nutrition label on food, gives you at a glance some key information. We’ll improve that over time.”
About the wrong information that had been circulating over social media about the breach of the Capitol building all Cook had to say was, “I think that the amplification of social media is something that I deeply worry about. And the targeting tools, the same tools that are used to target in advertising can be used to target for misinformation purposes or extremist purposes. And so I deeply worry about that.”
