Not everyone thinks Tim Cook’s actions on China are moral, but what are the choices? Hero? Or, Hypocrite? Noak Kulwin:
The gadget-enthusiast magic factory last week removed software from its App Store that allowed protesters in Hong Kong to track the movements of law enforcement. Apple claimed in a statement that the app, HKmap.live, was being used “to target and ambush police, threaten public safety, and [that] criminals have used it to victimise residents in areas where they know there is no law enforcement.”
The alternative was to incur the wrath of the Chinese government, shut down manufacturing, and kill Apple for a few years. Cook chose wisely.
