Updated story on Tim Cook defending @hkmaplive decision to employees and full text of letter. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-hongkong-protest-cook/apples-cook-defends-decision-to-remove-police-tracking-app-used-in-hong-kong-idUSKBN1WP2SZ?il=0 …
Apple has removed a controversial Hong Kong app from its App Store. For those keeping track: First Apple was criticized in U.S. & Europe for rejecting the app. It approved it. Then it faced Chinese criticism for approving the app. It removed it.
Apple just took the Quartz app out of the Chinese app store at the request of China, and http://qz.com is now blocked from mainland China. Our excellent @qz coverage of ongoing Hong Kong protests may be the reason: https://qz.com/re/hong-kong-protests/ …
Earlier today, should be noted, that Apple also removed the Quartz news app from the App Store in China. They’ve been reporting on the protests.

The app was initially rejected, but then approved after a review. However, after that approval and its release on the App Store, Apple said it received complaints that it was used for illegal activity and verified those complaints with officials in Hong Kong, leading to removal.
1/ This is a good story by @eringriffith about Silicon Valley's newfound (rediscovered?) focus on turning a profit. What I hope this brings about in the press is more stories on *why* and *how* startups lose money, and how credible the explanations are. https://www.nytimes.com/2019/10/08/technology/silicon-valley-startup-profit.html …
thread on good vs bad startup $$ burn - I'd add that one easy way to tell the difference is pure software/SaaS companies vs the rest!
3/ Salesforce basically did this for many years, and investors believed the explanation and the story that Salesforce could flip to a profit at nearly any point. And to be fair, Salesforce has done just that, going from a loss in 2016 to more than $1 billion profit in 2019.
2/ Every young company that loses money says "We're investing in growth." Ok, well, how so? If, for example, you're hiring salespeople for several hundred thousand dollars a year because they can sell several million dollars of software subscriptions, then perhaps its legit.
