According to Steve Blank, a former Silicon Valley entrepreneur, Apple today “feels a lot like Microsoft at the beginning of the Steve Ballmer age. A products company needs new products. The

    Apple CEO Tim Cook defends Google relationship

    Apple CEO Tim Cook defended his company's relationship with Google, saying it's “not a perfect thing” but that he believes the company has the best search engine. During an interview with Axios that aired on HBO on Sunday, Cook, who has equated the data collection practices of other technology giants to “surveillance,” pointed to Apple's efforts to minimize user tracking while still offering Google's search engine. “We have private web browsing,” Cook said. “We have an intelligent tracker prevention. What we've tried to do is come up with ways to help our users through their course of the day.” Google currently pays Apple to serve as the default search engine for iPhone and iPads. "It's not a
