Apple boss Tim Cook praises GDPR and wants tough US privacy law
Apple chief executive Tim Cook has demanded a tough new US data protection law, in an unusual speech in Europe.

Referring to the misuse of "deeply personal" data, he said it was being "weaponised against us with military efficiency".

"We shouldn't sugar-coat the consequences," he added. "This is surveillance."

Finally something good coming out of Silicon Valley and Apple...

This is a very touchy theme in Germany.

WhatsApp is "illegal" in Europe, because of the way it treats contacts. It is being banned by many companies for use on company phones or private phones that have access to company contacts.

The mass collection and processing (and passing on data to third parties) with little or no regard for the law.

The amount of overreach from many internet based companies is staggering, yet, in the USA, because it is a company and not the government doing it, it is alright... A completely wierd way of thinking.
