All right, well, speaking of privacy, the EU is holding a big privacy conference in Brussels.
Our own Katie Collins is out there, but Alfred, you have some of the details of what Apple and Facebook have said at this conference, right?
Yeah, so Tim Cook spoke at it earlier today, and he's actually the first tech CEO to speak about privacy under US data privacy law
This has been brewing for some time now, but usually through a privacy officer or some lawyer for Amazon or Facebook or Google.
So Tim Cook is the first tech CEO to actually comment about this and he basically criticises the tech industry.
And talks about all the issues with privacy that we've already seen through the last year, you know companies using your data and things like that.
And then he laid out basically Apple's plan or what Apple wants in the US privacy law Which includes the right hab your personal data minimised, the right to know what is being collected about you, the right control you know you can add it on to what a data company has on you and then security as a foundation for all that making sure all that is stored in a secure server.
The interesting part is that he criticises tech companies out there.
He doesn't name any of them but a lot of them is what Google and Facebook does.
If you look Google's privacy framework it's almost the exact same thing.
Facebook didn't lay out their Their you know, whole plan for what they wanted U.S. data privacy law but Mark Zuckerberg basically went out there and said hey you should trust us.
Yeah, that's, that's what I'm gonna do, try to trust Mark.
