Google, Apple and Uber promise not to build a Muslim registry

After over a thousand Silicon Valley engineers pledged never to help build a Muslim registry, Buzzfeed News asked the tech giants themselves about their stance. Google, Apple and Uber told the publication that no, they won’t support the development of one either. Facebook, Microsoft and Twitter made the same vow a few days ago. The possibility of a Muslim registry in the United States first came up during President-Elect Trump’s campaign, and he has yet to deny wanting one. In addition, one of the members of Trump’s transition team, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, proposed to reinstate a registry of immigrants from Muslim countries.

The big G told Buzzfeed News in an email that from what the company knows, the “proposal doesn’t seem to be on the table.” But if it’s ever asked to participate, “of course wouldn’t do [it.]” An Apple spokesperson said the iPhonemaker hasn’t been asked and would oppose such an effort. “We think people should be treated the same no matter how they worship, what they look like, who they love,” he said. Meanwhile, Uber replied with a resounding “No.”

These tech titans met with the President-Elect at a tech summit earlier this week to discuss job creation, tax cuts and China, among other topics. One of the attendees who has declined to respond to Buzzfeed News’ question is Oracle, whose CEO (Safra Katz) is slated to join Trump’s transition team.

The City of Tomorrow: The future of urban transportation is being built today


Innovation happens when people come together. Nowhere is that more obvious than in our bustling cities around the world. And as resident numbers continue to climb, some of the most populated locations across the globe are faced with the opportunity to not only shape the future — but to design it.

According to a 2014 United Nations report, 54 percent of the world's population resides in urban areas; by 2050 that number is expected to rise to 66 percent. That’s a lot of people.

An increase in population can lead to a whole slew of transportation issues — many of which you probably experience regularly. From congestion on the roads and inefficient traffic patterns to unreliable public transportation and rising commute times, city dwellers know how painful it can be when systems start to fail.
