News organizations pile onto fight against Apple

The trade organization representing news organizations including the New York Times, The Washington Post and The Associated Press are joining the fight against Apple's App Store terms.


"Nearly all of DCN's [Digital Content Next's] members offer apps in the Apple App Store and, as noted above, many offer subscription-based access to a wide variety of content," wrote Jason Kint, the CEO of Digital Content Next, which routinely rails against the Big Tech firms over their treatment of news publishers. "The terms of Apple's unique marketplace greatly impact the ability to continue to invest in high-quality, trusted news and entertainment particularly in competition with other larger firms."

In it he tells the story of the cell phone's invention, and looks at how it has changed the world and will continue to do so.

Cooper came on the Source Code Podcast to talk about his time at Motorola, the process of designing the first-ever cell phone, whether today's tech giants are monopolies and why he's bullish on the future of AI.
