Russia has taken down the Steve Jobs memorial due to Tim Cook's announcement earlier this week. Russia says they don't support him and that they don't want to endorse devices used by the NSA to spy. Good move?
It's Russia. It doesn't surprise me.
I didn't get the message about NSA spying in the video you linked to. In fact, it doesn't say *why* the thing was taken down, & even mentions that it was going to be taken down for maintenance or something, anyway. So is it purely speculation that it
was related to Tim Cook's acknowledging being gay, or was there actually some official statement from Russia? If the former, let's just wait & see if it goes back up. If the latter, the Cook part is stupid, since the memorial wasn't about him.
Whether we agree or not, there are higher, more alarming examples of human rights and civic violations in this world.
