Tim Cook teases WWDC on CBS and spills no beans (video)

“I’m full of secrets and it’s hard not to overflow right now, but I’ve been trained well.”

From CBS Sunday Morning’s “Apple’s Tim Cook on a ‘giant leap’ in social progress”

Tim Cook has been the CEO of Apple for nearly a decade now, and still carries on an Apple tradition: their Worldwide Developers Conference, which starts tomorrow (though in an age of social distancing, this marquee event will be virtual). “60 Minutes” correspondent John Dickerson talks with Cook about societal changes, corporate responsibility, and the role of smartphone cameras in helping advance social progress.

Cue the video:

My take: Asked whether he talks to President Trump about such issues as immigration and racial equality, Cook says “Of course I do.” Oh to be a fly on that wall.

    I have been a fanboy for nearly 30 years. Steve remains an inspiration to me. I still cry when I view the Stanford address. Nobody ever dreamed someone could come along and fill his shoes, but Tim Cook has. Just as Steve planned. I am proud to be an Apple investor, and it doesn’t hurt lol. Happy Dad’s Day.

      Me too. The WWDC 2009 was my opportunity to see Steve Job at opening Keynote, but he returned to Apple after WWDC event. Every WWDC I pray for him and family, during the opening Keynote.

    There are many ways Steve Jobs’ iPhone changed the world. One significant way is how the iPhone serves as a miniature First Amendment Device. It is a humongous, powerful engine of free speech that provides a pathway of individual autonomy, affording each of us to become unpaid freelancers’ news journalists, or Citizen journalists. Each of us can become personal truth tellers using our devices armed with sophisticated cameras, audio and instant communication around the world. We not only can shape societal events, but change societal behaviors, as appropriate. You’re not out there as some professional journalist, but you’re doing no less so with security through obscurity. Always remember that and be prepared to assume that role when duty calls. I believe, in some measure, that is what Tim C was referencing when he alluded to video changing the world for the better.

    The Millenials had it right:
    “If there’s no video, it didn’t happen” And that’s what all criminals, bad guys, and evil-doers were counting on. No more.
