Only Apple Can Save
Facebook should be regulated like the cigarette industry.
Too much screen time is like digital heroin to kids.
Internet addiction changes your brain similarly to cocaine….
“I do think this is (Apple’s) time to step up,” Harris told the Times. “In fact, they may be our only hope ”

Naw, there is another hope and it doesn’t involve a company called Apple.
But since we belong to the day, let us be self-controlled, putting on faith and love as a breastplate, and the hope of salvation as a helmet. (1 Thessalonians 5:8)
If you desire “self-control” then there is only one hope. And it is a grand, powerful hope.
All other hopes, including the Apple Corporation, are vain beliefs.
Be warned, such self-control from God is not to be found in the Cultural Christianity around you and the government will oppose.

(nypost.com)—Center for Humane Technology founder Tristan Harris has been described by The Atlantic as the “closest thing Silicon Valley has to a conscience.”
He spent three years as a Google design ethicist developing a framework for how technology should ethically steer the thoughts and actions of billions of people. He believes Apple is perhaps the only company that could make a genuine effort to tackle the issue.
“I do think this is (Apple’s) time to step up,” Harris told the Times. “In fact, they may be our only hope.”
Unlike the other big tech giants like Facebook and Google, Apple doesn’t depend on tech addiction to keep serving you ads. They mainly just want to sell you a new laptop and iPhone every few years.
The Times article came after two large Apple shareholders penned open letters to the company urging a stronger stance on iPhone “addiction” among children.
New York-based Jana Partners and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) said the firm must do more to help children fight addiction on its devices.
“There is a developing consensus around the world including Silicon Valley that the potential long-term consequences of new technologies need to be factored in at the outset, and no company can outsource that responsibility,” the investors who control $2 billion of Apple stock wrote.
“Apple can play a defining role in signaling to the industry that paying special attention to the health and development of the next generation is both good business and the right thing to do.”
