Microsoft employees protest US Army contracthttps://thehill.com/policy/technology/431213-microsoft-employees-protest-technology-contract-with-us-army-designed-to
Excerpt from that article "A group of more than 50 Microsoft employees have signed on to a letter protesting the company's $479 million technology contract with the U.S. Army, saying Microsoft is providing the military with tools "designed to help people kill."
Approximately 50 Microsoft employees out of 134944 total is 0.04%.
Nowhere does the article mention around 'around the world'.

1. Steve was at the helm, but thousands of hard-working creative people at Apple were responsible for the creation and roll out of the Apple Stores. Steve announced it, he even *helped* shape it, but to pretend he did it in a vacuum is an insult to all the people that worked their asses off to make it happen.
2. Not only did Apple not change the *face of retail*, they didn't even come up with a new idea. It is called a "boutique" and it was the norm across many different retail markets from perfume to high-end cars. Apple was the not even the first to apply it to computers. They did it really well, but it was not a new idea.
You know, you can praise the things you like that Apple has done without using hyperbole every time.
Edit.. I stand corrected, Apple was not the first to apply it to computers. Macxpress brought up "Gateway Country Stores". Apple certainly did it better, and Gateway's lower margins just could not support an upscale shopping experience.
Steve Jobs changed the face of Apple's retail operations on May 15, 2001Your computer is just being mischievous.
Have a tissue ...

Best part of AP is mic quality. No one can tell you’re on a BT headset.

I don't know all the details of this situation, and he's in Germany so applicable principles might be very different, but I wouldn't rule out the possibility that he could face civil liability if he didn't take reasonable action (e.g. revealing details of the exploit to Apple) to mitigate the risk of harm to others. Again, the general rule would protect him from such liability. But I can think of exceptions which could possibly apply in this case. So it's possible - though I don't mean to suggest likely, I just don't know enough to make such an assessment - that he's now been made aware that he could face civil liability if he doesn't disclose the details of the exploit to Apple and, as a result of Apple not being able to address the problem as quickly, third parties are harmed.

Companies like Scamsung and Huawei will never learn, this is their DNA; lie, cheat, steal, defraud until you get caught, then pay the fees, and rinse and repeat!
Has Apple officially discontinued the iPad mini ? I bought one and it is great on the train commute to work and holding up in bed watching movies doesn't tire the arms. If an iPad mini Pro (works with Apple pencil) came out then I would probably update.
