Tim Cook made some statements during an interview that infuriated Mark Zuckerberg so much that he ordered all his executives to drop their iPhones and to buy Android-powered devices instead. This all started when Tim Cook, who is the CEO of Apple for those who didn’t know, did an interview with MSNBC and he talked about how Facebook looks into people’s personal lives and how Mark Zuckerberg has made many bad decisions.
Mark Zuckerberg is Angered with Tim Cook
As Tim Cook was talking about Facebook, he didn’t shy away from saying that Mark Zuckerberg is the one at fault for the Cambridge Analytica scandal and that this wouldn’t have happened if Tim Cook was in charge of Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg became infuriated with the comments made by Tim Cook and he had the following to say: “I think it’s important that we don’t get all get Stockholm syndrome and let the companies that work hard to charge you more convince you that they actually care more about you. Because that sounds ridiculous to me”.
The Facebook CEO is clearly talking about the fact that Apple is infamous for overpricing its products and for not caring about what its fans want. Not just that, but Mark Zuckerberg also admitted that he asked all his executives to use Android devices by making the following statement: “We’ve long encouraged our employees and executives to use Android because it’s the most popular operating system in the world”.
Apple vs Facebook Feud
This Apple vs Facebook feud is something totally unexpected and we can’t stop from wondering if Mark Zuckerberg is going to ask his team to give iOS less attention than Android. However, this is probably not going to happen because Facebook would end up losing fans instead of getting people to switch over to Android.
