When we work on making our devices accessible by the blind, I don’t consider the bloody ROI.
Apple CEO Tim Cook • In a passionate rebuttal of a question during a shareholder meeting. The question, from a representative of the conservative think tank the National Center for Public Policy Research, questioned the company’s decision to go green and asked the company, point-blank, to only do things that improved the company’s ROI. (Short version: They are conservatives, and they are trolling.) Cook went further, adding: ”If you want me to do things only for ROI reasons, you should get out of this stock.” (via shortformblog) 1 month ago • 215 notes
