Cook made the comments on Sunday at the opening ceremony for the conference -- an event designed to globally promote the country’s vision of a more censored and controlled internet.. It’s the second Chinese appearance in two months for the executive, who met with President Xi Jinping in October. “The theme of this conference -- developing a digital economy for openness and shared benefits -- is a vision we at Apple share,” Cook said. “We are proud to have worked alongside many of our partners in China to help build a community that will join a common future in cyberspace."

My, My Apple. You've come a long way from this:



It's all about the Benjamin's for Apple,


Cook’s comments come at a pivotal point for the company’s future in China, which is now its biggest market outside of North America. It relies on the sale of hardware and services in the world’s most populated country to propel revenue and profit growth. But the efforts required to stay in China’s good graces are causing tensions with civil libertarians and politicians at home.


Don't forget to by that new I-Phone for Christmas!

Apple's goal is to make a crap ton of money.
That was their goal when they started and that has never changed.

All the Chinese need is blazing fast internet and high price phones. They do not need to eat food, they can eat fake eggs and ground up chicken bones and feathers to offset the cost of the phones.

Apple is trying to increase their sales, they do not care if the people they sell to are starving. There must be an app that can keep these people from feeling the hunger pains.

Same for the FCC head picked by Trump , since he is looking to implement censorship by pay to play tactics when removing net neutrality measures.

So America is not too far behind China on the internet censorship either.

Its not Chinas Censorship, Big Brother is everywhere.

As far as Appearance, yah the 800 pound gorilla in the room. Apple used China to make even more money, have built a headquarters here in Dupertino and are importing workers from China on Temporary Visas.
