'In every way, at every turn, the question we ask ourselves is not, "What can we do?",' he said, 'but, "What should we do"'. And yet, we are not powerless in the face of these problems. As for how he would handle such a privacy concern, Cook has said that such a scenario isn't possible for his company.

After that, Apple committed to increased transparency, and the company encrypted iPhones to make it more hard for anyone - even authorities - to get their hands on data.

'And no generation has a chance to change things faster than yours can'. "Aided by technology, every individual has the tools, the potential and reach to build a better world".

Apple CEO Tim Cook, whose recent public comments on the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica privacy scandal prompted a rebuke from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, again brought up customer privacy during a commencement speech over the weekend.

"Fearless, like the students of Parkland, Florida, who refused to be silent about the epidemic of gun violence and have rallied millions to their cause", he said.

Asiana Airlines A330 wing slices tail off Turkish Airlines A321
Two airliners at an global airport in Istanbul, Turkey, collided on the ground, breaking off the tail of one of the planes. No injuries were reported, but the cancellation of the Asiana flight caused inconveniences for passengers.

Given that the firm ideals that Steve Jobs had set up fr the company during his time, and pretty much continues to be the legacy at Apple these days as well, Tim Cook had thanked him and said, that the learning experience he was lucky to have from Jobs was the sheer belief he had in the dare to do spirit and mindset. Since graduating, Cook has made good: He's been named as one of the most respected CEOs, and Apple has grown prodigiously since he took over in 2011.

Cook told the graduating class of 2018 to be fearless like the women who came forward with allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against high-profile men in the entertainment industry with the help of the Me Too and Time's Up movement. "Duke graduates, be fearless!"

Cook, who graduated with an MBA in 1988 from Duke's Fuqua business school, also warned of the impending dangers of climate change and Americans' inability to listen to challenging opinions.

Almost three decades after he graduated from Duke's Fuqua School of Business, Cook returned to the university's Durham, North Carolina campus to deliver a powerful and inspiring speech to the new generation.
