Tensions between Facebook and Apple seem to be deteriorating further. Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of the social media giant, apparently has taken moves by Apple and comments by CEO Tim Cook personally and is out for some kind of revenge.

Mark Zuckerberg Takes Tim Cook’s Facebook Criticism Personally

In 2018, with the Cambridge Analytica scandal raging,  MSNBC asked Mr. Cook what he would if he were in Mr. Zuckerbger’s position. “I wouldn’t be in this situation,” he replied. This apparently still rankles with Mr. Zuckerberg, who considers the comments “extremely glib” and “not at all aligned with the truth,” according to The Wall Street Journal. He supposedly told colleagues that “we need to inflict pain” on Apple, and has repeated this stance since.

New privacy moves in iOS 14 escalated things further. Again, Facebook and its boss believe Apple is interfering, with spokeswoman Dani Lever claiming the firm is fighting for “the future of the free Internet.” She added that “Apple claims this is about privacy, but it’s about profit, and we’re joining others to point out their self-preferencing anti-competitive nature.”

The second-worst American is throwing a hissy fit.

diddums, grow up Mr Zuckerberg, or better still, take your scammed billions and go hide back under the rock from which you crawled.

Now for me, that is as close as I will ever get to posting something remotely offensive.

If Zuckerberg really wanted to ‘inflict pain on Apple’, he would join their product development department.

Oh little boy, you are so in over your head. This isnt like when you were pulling the wings off flies, this is the real world. In the real world you and your business practices are hated. Zuch, zucked, zucking, is becoming a commonly used obscenity. And that is all because you are a small petty, thin skinned utterly unethical man who was lucky up against experienced businesspeople who know what they are doing.

Hilarious.

The pampered little boy with an extremely low tolerance to frustration is having another tantrum. May his mafia-like business go downhill quickly.
