Apple’s Tim Cook warns that Sacrificing Privacy ‘Risks Our Way Of Life’

Apple CEO Tim Cook has warned of “dire consequences” if tech companies can’t protect the privacy of those who use their products.

“History has shown us that sacrificing our right to privacy can have dire consequences,” Cook said.

“We still live in a world where all people are not treated equally,” he said, “where too many people do not feel free to practice their religion or express their opinion or love who they choose, a world in which that information can make the difference between life or death.”
