Apple Reportedly Preparing Diversity Report

Apple CEO Tim Cook testifies at SenateThis week, Apple CEO Tim Cook traveled to Iowa for Allen & Co.’s annual Sun Valley conference.

While there, reporters pressed Cook for insight on a number of issues, including one that has become increasingly prevalent in the tech world.

At one point Wednesday, Cook was asked if Apple plans to provide the public with an update on the degree of diversity achieved inside of Apple.

“We’ll release the information at some point,” Cook said, according to Bloomberg, although no estimated time-frame was given with regard to when this report might be released.

Apple, Google, Facebook and others have found themselves under increasing pressure to hire more women and minorities.

In response to the attendee list on Re/Code by Kara Swisher, whose moderator censored my comments by saying: "Personal attacks have no place here. Please review our comments policy "

Dear ElizCrane moderator of Re/Code ,

So you do take side:(, take side with those fascism powers behind Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler :( 

Would you please point out where in my comments get personal about Sebastian Thrun or Gabriele Scheler? If your policy have 'no place' for 'personal attack', would your policy have any place for advocating fascists along with their fascism crimes?

Their fascism crimes are not only against me, but also against many other victims, and they are against the basic principles of humanity; Would you classify such of their fascism crimes personal?

What I presented are no more than facts, which those fascists I challenged dare never publicly deny; Instead of keep deleting my comments, why don't we leave those I challenged a chance to give us a candid answer right here on this board? --- that's what we call 'equal opportunity and freedom of speech'; 

Other than revealing their fascism crimes, where did I get personal with Sebastian Thrun or Gabriele Scheler? I mean, come on ...

— Sebastian Thrun, one of the Sun Valley Conference attendees,  had collateralled with a criminal suspect named gabriele scheler in a series of fascism crimes starting from a Stanford campus atrocity case — [Stanford police case number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] — — attention to the 7 photo evidence to see how cruel people from this fascism circle are —, which led to the tragic death of an innocent Asian Stanford student, Thrun is not innocent in an unsuccessful plotted murder on me either and I have been cursed by fascism powers from Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler’s side for many years.

— There is actually a war between fascism and anti-fascism, at this stage, fascism still prevails in our lives; Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler are just front figures we could see in a fascism circle, there is a whole pack of fascists behind them to cover up their crimes and to retaliate on victims

Dear Sir/Ms nontraditional001,

Well, I bet there is at least a convincing police case number to start with:[Stanford police case number: IR #04-111-0335;Victim: Peter Cao; Criminal Suspect: Gabriele Scheler] — do you have any problem with that? Would you dare deny the brutality from Gabriele Scheler on my body as evidenced in those 7 photos?—

If you want to have some credibility here, please show us your real identity in the first place;

We are all made of human beings; you have your judgement, and we all have our own; Anybody with normal intelligence could easily figure out that there is something seriously wrong going on in this case; Would you be specific which part in my argument is ‘not convincing at all’? on what identity do you speak, after all?

Your personal opinion out of a simple and arrogant argument of ‘not convincing at all’, under an insincerely disguised user name, are problems that make yourself ‘not convincing’ to anyone ‘at all’;

— Would you please show us your real identity? I am eager to learn;

Answer to nontraditional001′s comment — “you might have a stronger argument if your cut back on the crazy” — from

Dear nontraditional001,
Appreciate that you’ve found some crazy issue here and thank you for your opinion;
It is a tough task to challenge those fascists, which might make it look crazy;
However, wouldn’t one agree that those bloody stripes on my legs in those 7 photo evidence out of a crazy crime scene — — a harsh reality?
Also, such a simple campus atrocity case with clear evidence and serious police investigation had been purposefully mystified later on, in favor of this criminal suspect Gabriele Scheler, by some judicial officers who hided their identities from me for over 10 years, and this case had therefore induced more and more retaliatory fascism crimes; though I am a victim, my life has been underhandedly cursed by fascism powers behind Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler for these many years — what’s really going on here? — isn’t this fact much crazier?
— One may find those things in my statements crazy to learn, but they are no more than facts; I am not the one who did crazy things, those fascists behind Sebastian Thrun and Gabriele Scheler did;

— It is a tough task to fight against such anti humanity crimes which are fascism by nature; I bet such anti-humanity crimes would not be tolerated anywhere, including in the Sun Valley Conference;

— Every attendee of this conference has the right to know, and so do all people who care about the influence of this conference;
