2 take aways.
1. Apple has as much data as they do money.
2. If you're an Apple retail employee, you need to worry.

What if America ran like Apple.

Well, this was boring. Apple looks at data and takes reasonable action.

Some of these closures have a political background and Apple is using its weight to push a political agenda.

Anyone think Apple may be looking at iPhone data to figure out where CoVid will strike next?

KennethSNSDSone SMTOWN July 24, 2020 - 12:33 AM

Y'all romanticizing how Apple handle the pandemic when maybe they can't paid their employees for the days that the store is closed. 🤷‍♀️
