Tim Cook's best quote - Apple vs Google vs Facebook - You are the product!

Apple | Tim Cook's view
A few years ago, users of Internet services began to realise that when an online service is free, you’re not the customer. You’re the product.


But at Apple, we believe a great customer experience shouldn’t come at the expense of your privacy.

Our business model is very straightforward: We sell great products. We don’t build a profile based on your email content or web browsing habits to sell to advertisers. We don’t “monetise” the information you store on your iPhone or in iCloud. And we don’t read your email or your messages to get information to market to you. Our software and services are designed to make our devices better. Plain and simple.
Quote of the day - Kenya

"Every morning in Africa, a gazelle wakes up, it knows it must outrun the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning in Africa, a lion wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It doesn't matter whether you're the lion or a gazelle —when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."
