God knows what advertising purpose

Tim Cook is trying to carve a division in the industry by once again taking shots at Google, this time singling out its new Google Photos service. Casey Newton already dissected the speech but one quote is worth repeating here (emphasis mine):

“You might like these so-called free services, but we don’t think they’re worth having your email or your search history or now even your family photos data-mined and sold off for God knows what advertising purpose.”

Arguably, Google Maps is better than Apple Maps, Gmail is better than Apple Mail, Google Drive is better than iCloud, Google Docs is better than iWork, and Google Photos can “surprise and delight” better than Apple Photos. Even with the risks.

The above comes from The Verge. So what do you think? Does Tim Cook have a point or is he just scaremongering because Apple can’t do cloud services properly?
