Apple CEO Advised Trump Against China Tariffs

Apple Music has passed 50 million subscribers this month, CEO Tim Cook has revealed.

"But I felt that tariffs were not the right approach there, and I showed him some more analytical kinds of things to demonstrate why".

Apple reportedly has committed at least $1 billion to creating original video content, engaging recently hired executives from the TV world to develop roughly a dozen shows consistent with the company's optimistic, family-friendly brand.

"No generation has ever had more power than yours", Cook said at Duke's Wallace Wade Stadium.

In March, after it became widely known that the information of tens of millions of Facebook users had been accessed without their permission by political data consulting firm Cambridge Analytica, Cook criticized ad-based Facebook's business model.

Cook left to a standing ovation, thanking the Apple founder, Steve Jobs, for his vision.

OPEC says oil glut nearly gone, makes supply pledge amid Iran worries
On Monday, OPEC forecasted that U.S. oil production will account for most of the growth in the industry this year. This estimated growth rate was revised higher by 25,000 barrels per day compared to last month's estimates.

Apple launched a new privacy section on its website previous year, in which it boasts about its stance on data protection. Apple is not flawless, by any stretch of the imagination, and the company certainly has other issues to contend with as well.

The full interview will air next month. When you look across this country, and when you see people's lives held back by discrimination and poverty, when you see injustice and inequality, he said you should be the last people to accept things as they are.

However, it's worth noting that Cook's 50 million users figure doesn't exclusively refer to paying customers.

Apple Music's numbers continue to inch up.

Although Cook said he didn't support Trump's policies, he credited part of Trump's analysis of the U.S.'s historical relationship with China.

While the ultimate goal of Trump's presidency seems to be to support American businesses, Cook emphasized that his approach would actually be harmful to the very USA businesses he's intending to support. "But it's clearly an area of interest".
