On Friday, February 28th at its annual Shareholder meeting Apple’s directors rejected an urgent Floor Proposal from shareholders calling on Apple to use technical methods and other best practices to protect user data. The roomful of shareholders who voted for it still haven’t heard why they were overruled.
This is amid what financial reporters call a deafening silence regarding its serious #gotofail security flaw. Apple users and shareholders expect the best. Why should protecting user data be an exception?
It has become more important than ever for Apple to adopt best practices to earn back user and shareholder trust.
