    Default Apple CEO - "lauds Parkland School Survivors"

    Looks like someone is playing to the peanut gallery or hopping on the bandwagon.

    Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Tim Cook waded into divisive political topics such as gun control and immigration during a commencement speech while continuing his criticisms of internet companies over a lack of user privacy.

    Speaking at Duke University, where he graduated from business school 30 years ago, Cook urged the students to reject the status quo and be fearless.

    "Fearless like the students of Parkland, Florida, who refuse to be silent about the epidemic of gun violence and have rallied millions to their cause," Cook said to rousing applause. "Fearless like the women who say ‘metoo’ and ‘Time’s Up.’ Women who cast light into dark places and move us to a more just and equal future. Fearless like those who fight for the rights of immigrants, who understand that our only hope for the future is one that embraces all who want to contribute."

    We'll see if Apple joins Dicks on the gun control chorus.

    Anyone else notice the mention of #metoo? I thought after Judge Moore got defeated in Alabama that #metoo was kind of fading away. Guess not.

    Well, then all yinz will have to turn in your mobile devices and laptops with the little apple logo. Because to keep them would be... hypocritical.

    I love the fact that some are calling it the:
    Pound Me Too movement.

    Not me, I have never owned, nor will ever own an Apple product.
    Rules are written in the stone,
    Break the rules and you get no bones,
    all you get is ridicule, laughter,
    and a trip to the house of pain.

    I wouldn't own anything Apple anyway, so I've got no dog in this fight, per se.

    I, shamefully admit, that in 1990, in college, I owned an Apple IIc with the sought after 2400 baud modem.

    28 years later, the shame is still there...can I get a hug?
