Even Tim Cook, who became Apple’s chief executive in 2011 has apparently turned against technology.
“I don’t have a kid, but I have a nephew that I put some boundaries on,” Cook told students at a college in Essex, England, late last week, according to the Guardian. “There are some things that I won’t allow; I don’t want them on a social network.”
Cook said this, the Guardian reported, as the school prepared to adopt to Apple’s coding curriculum. Every student got an iPad, and Cook told them that learning to code is more important than speaking a second language.
Yet, the CEO disclaimed, “I’m not a person that says we’ve achieved success if you’re using [technology] all the time.”
