On an unexpected note, Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook had told to use Android phones came as a bit of shock to his executives reports The New York Times. According to the report, the order was given minutes later MNSNBC interview of Tim Cook, Apple CEO. In the interview Tim Cook had commented about Facebook’s scandal about the Cambridge Analytica.
Mark Zuckerberg, however denied this and said that the decision to use Android phones was in no way related to Tim Cook’s interview. But only because Android is supposedly the most widely used operating system around the globe.
In the interview, Tim Cook had made some sharp remarks about Facebook in relation with the scandal of Cambridge Analytica. In some statements Tim Cook mentioned that they never in anyway were about to traffic the user’s personal life in spite of knowing that they could make billions of money if they do so. This statement indirectly was an attack on Facebook. Now that Tim Cook had made such comment, Zuckerberg now has a reason to hold a grudge on him.
Zuckerberg, in an interview with Vox, responded to Cook’s comment saying that their company didn’t get Stockholm syndrome and said that he felt really funny the way how some companies convince people telling them they charge more only because they care about them.
Whatever might be the reason, Zuckerberg’s order asking his executives to use Android phone is useful in some way when considered the number of iOS users in the United States and the number of Android users in the rest of the world. This would also provide way for the better understanding of the OS which the American executives never tried using.
