Nobody's business but Tim Cook's

After Apple CEO Tim Cook announced he was gay, there were many insulting online comments against him and even calling for a boycott of Apple products. I'm neither a gay rights supporter nor anti-gay; I just think sex-orientation is a private matter.

Anyway Apple products, no matter whether they are perfect or not, are innovative gadgets that have changed the way we communicate and reshaped the global smartphone market.

As long as Cook and his boyfriend don't harm other people, they should not be the targets of such abuse.
