Many (most?) corporations choose to operate under a heavy veil of 
secrecy (*particularly* Apple).  That choice is also a choice to open 
themselves up these criticisms.  These corporations have to take the 
good with the bad.  If they chose to operate with greater transparency, 
then they would almost certainly come into less criticism.

I have exactly zero sympathy for Apple, MS, and Google, for the 
criticisms they have received.  They choose to operate in secrecy, then 
they choose to be the target of these criticisms.

Suck it up.
