Tim Cook Reportedly Threatened To Pull Uber From App Store

Sure, he might have "threatened" to pull Uber from the App Store...but did he? Nope. Everyone gives Uber a pass and that's why Uber just does whatever the hell it wants to.

The reason? Kalanick had been directing his engineers to camouflage a feature in the ride-hailing app that allowed Uber to secretly identify and tag iPhone users, even after the app had been deleted from users' phones, according to a wide-ranging profile published Sunday by The New York Times. But Apple was on to the ruse, which violated Apple's app privacy rules.
