Tim Cook Visits China, Takes Didi Chuxing Car to Apple Store

Posted May 16, 2016 at 3:20pm by iClarified
Apple CEO Tim Cook visited China today after a series of setbacks in the country.

Apple recently announced a $1 billion investment in Didi Chuxing, a ride sharing company. Cook and President Jean Liu hailed a Didi Chuxing car to visit Apple's Store in the shopping district of Wangfujing.

"Taxi!" Caught a cab in Beijing this morning with Didi Chuxing's Jean Liu, tweeted Cook.

Lui hosted a seminar at the store which was attended by the founders and CEOs of some of China's top app providers, including Groupon-like Meituan, picture-editing app MeituPic, news content provider Toutiao.com, culinary app DayDayCook and game developer Tap4Fun.

"Now we are serving over 300 million users with eight product lines. Every day over 11 million rides are completed on our platform" Liu said. "Meanwhile, our collaboration with Apple enters into a new stage. There are many similar stories like ours. Apple and the App Store are not only the role model of the entire tech world, they are also the grass root platform for aspiring innovators. This is where dreams take off."

Apple's investment in Didi Chuxing is seen as both a gesture to appease China and way to gain data for its rumored electric car project.

What upsets me is that Cook went out of his way to protect our privacy from the US government yet he continues to do business in a censorship driven country ( ̄ー ̄)
