Apple's Tim Cook urges Duke graduates to think hard about data privacy

Apple's Tim Cook urges Duke graduates to think hard about data privacy

"We reject the excuse that getting the most out of technology means trading away your right to privacy", Cook said Sunday at Duke University.

In March ahead of the March for Our Lives protest, he praised their passion for gun control following the shooting death of 17 people at their high school on February 14.

"Fearless, like the students of Parkland, Florida, who refused to be silent about the epidemic of gun violence and have rallied millions to their cause", Cook told the Duke commencement attendees. "Women who cast light onto dark places and move us to a more just and equal future", Cook continued.

But some people are really lucky to have two mothers in their life in the form of a sisters, who always look after them. Even for her travel, Sonam Kapoor appears to have hand-picked an ensemble that the fashion police will agree with.

A series of high-profile sexual misconduct cases helped jumpstart the "Me Too" movement and hashtag in October 2017.

Almost three decades after he graduated from Duke's Fuqua School of Business, Cook returned to the university's Durham, North Carolina campus to deliver a powerful and inspiring speech to the new generation.

"Our country is deeply divided, and too many Americans refuse to hear any opinion that differs from their own".

Valérie L'Epine-Karnik, CEO, Film France was held to explore co-production opportunities between India and France. Arms linked together, the women took it in turns to climb the steps halfway before standing in silent protest.

Cook opened by expressing his excitement to be back at Duke. Our schools and communities suffer from deep inequality. In every way and every turn, the question we ask is not what can we do, but what should we do, he further added. Ever since Apple itself became the center of attraction in the U.S. government's efforts to weaken encryption on smartphones and cellular networks, the company has become a poster boy for protecting users' privacy even in the face of extreme pressure. As for how he would handle such a privacy concern, Cook has said that such a scenario isn't possible for his company.

Cook also reiterated his belief that technology will continue to illuminate and expedite the graduates' future career paths. The concern for privacy is more than ever and it seems like the companies are experiencing a hard time fending off these attacks.

In his speech, the Apple CEO urged them to "think different" instead of accepting the status quo, echoing the words from Apple's famous advertising campaign from the late 90s. "Aided by technology, every individual has the tools, the potential and reach to build a better world", he continued.
