Tim Cook on Apple TV
[quote] When I go into my living room and turn on the TV, I feel like I have gone backwards in time by 20 to 30 years. It’s an area of intense interest. I can’t say more than that.[/quote]
Tim Cook on manufacturing in the US:
[quote] We’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States.
When you back up and look at Apple’s effect on job creation in the United States, we estimate that we’ve created more than 600,000 jobs now,” said Cook. Those jobs, not all Apple hires, vary from research and development jobs in California to retail store hires to third-party app developers. Apple already has data centers in North Carolina, Nevada and Oregon and plans to build a new one in Texas.
It’s not so much about price, it’s about the skills.[/quote]
