Apple CEO Cook attacked Qualcomm: We haven’t had any

35Early on Jan. 9, Beijing Time, Apple CEO Tim Cook attacked Qualcomm in an interview with CNBC on Tuesd、

ay, suggesting that it is almost impossible for the two companies to reach a settlement amid ongoing legal disputes.

“The problem between us and Qualcomm is that their policies are not licensed. We think it’s illegal.” Second, they have an obligation to provide a patent portfolio on a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis. But they didn’t. They charged too much.

stioned the marketing strategy adopted by Qualcomm. The New York Times reported last November that Qualcomm hired Definers Public Affairs to write and disseminate false information about Apple in order to confuse media coverage.

“Companies should not pay people to write false news and publicize it,” Cook said. Things shouldn’t work that way.”

Qualcomm and its CEO, Steve Mollenkopf, have repeatedly said that the company wants an out-of-court settlement with Apple. But news from Apple seems to deny that possibility.

“We haven’t had any reconciliation with them since the third quarter of last year,” Cook said Tuesday. So I’m not sure where that idea came from.

Cook also responded to Apple’s critics Tuesday by saying that Apple’s ecosystem has never been so powerful.

new college graduates aged up to 24 years old increased by

ed by 8.4 percentage points, as the global financial crisis caused demands to fall drastically. It i

So the government should implement an expansionary macroeconomic policy to create a loose em

nemployment and the structural employment problem of college graduates.

To offset the possible negative impact of the Sino-US trade dispute on college graduates’ employment, the government sho

Simulation tests of large general equilibrium models show that

both countries’ economic indicators would suffer due to the US tariff hike on $200 billio
