“I think their search engine is the best. But two, look at what we’ve done with the controls. We have private web browsing, we have intelligent tracking prevention.”
“What we’ve tried to do is come up with ways to help our users through their course of the day. It’s not a perfect thing, but it goes a long way in helping,” Cook told the Axios technology correspondent.
Google would reportedly pay Apple enormous $9 billion in 2018 to remain the default search engine for its iPhone’s Safari browser on iOS.
As per the Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall, the number would continue to grow, potentially leading to the payment of $ 12 billion in the year 2019.
Cook even opposed the privacy practices of some of the biggest tech companies like Facebook.
Whenever it comes to regulating the tech company, Cook aforesaid whule he is “not a big fan of regulation,” but there comes time to “admit when the free market is not working“.
“I think it’s inevitable that there will be some level of regulation. I think Congress and the administration at some point will pass something,” Cook said.
“This is not a matter of privacy versus profits, or privacy versus technical innovation. That’s a false choice.”
Added to that, Apple CEO also said”Your device has incredible intelligence about you, but as a company I don’t have to have that,” .
Talking on the question on diversity at the workplace, Cook said the Silicon Valley has been open and is accepting to many different people from different walks of life.
“But I agree 100 per cent from a gender point of view, that the valley has missed it and tech in general has missed it,” he aforesaid.
