Masters of the Universe Infighting: Apple CEO Tim Cook Takes On Zuckerberg

The full interview with Cook, conducted by Kara Swisher and Chris Hayes following Apple's education event in Chicago this week, is set to air Friday on MSNBC. He follows that with: "We've elected not to do that". The message reads: "Apple believes privacy is a fundamental human right, so every Apple product is created to minimize the collection and use of your data, use on-device processing whenever possible, and provide transparency and control over your information".

In that conversation, Cook had some opinions about Facebook and Mark Zuckerberg profiting from user's private data.

"I think the best regulation is no regulation, is self regulation". He added: "However, I think we're beyond that here".

With the Cambridge Analytica scandal revealing massive Facebook data misuse, Cook earlier called for more measures to ensure user data protection.

Fast Company noted that while Cook has been vocal about Apple's refusal to engage in the data monetisation economy, Facebook is the most widely used app on the iPhone and reached an 80pc penetration among app users.

When asked what he would do if he found himself in the same position as Zuckerberg, Cook said, "I wouldn't be in this situation".

Facebook is facing harsh criticism from privacy experts across the world for manhandling of user's private data.

"We have a deep sense of responsibility to give back to our country and the people who help make our success possible". Unlike Apple, he said, they look at every app that uses their platform in detail, referring to the company's App Store review process.
