It is no mystery that the operations carried out by Tim Cook and his associates are not exactly well seen by everyone. Zuckerberg’s digs at Apple haven’t gone unnoticed recently, but the list of CEOs who don’t appreciate the company’s decisions certainly doesn’t end there. About that, too Daniel Ek spoke about it.
In fact, as reported by 9to5Macas well as you can see by means of the same Daniel Ek’s Twitter profilethe CEO of Spotify published “burst” tweets on November 30, 2022, going so far as to state that the Cupertino company “stifles innovation and harms consumers“, acting “in personal interest“.
Everything is due to the fact that, as explained by Ek, four years ago it was “filed a complaint describing in detail Apple’s anti-competitive practices“. The Spotify CEO went on to post links related, for example, to a preliminary decision by the European Commission. Ek further said that Apple “it seems not to care about the law or the courts or consumer choice“, also hinting that according to the Spotify CEO, users should have the ability to “install apps from sources of their choice“.
As you can well imagine, at the basis of all this there are also issues such as the one relating to 30% fees retained by Apple, as well as Apple Music’s competition for Spotify (Ek is asking in simple terms that Apple Music must comply with rules such as those imposed on third-party services). In short, the Spotify CEO certainly didn’t send them to say.
For the rest, remaining in that of Cupertinowe recall that recently there was a meeting between Elon Musk and Tim Cook, which seems to have clarified everything a bit (recently even Musk had expressed himself in a not exactly positive way about Apple).
