Tim Cook talks Apple Car, innovation and his thoughts on the auto industry

In a somewhat rare interview, Fortune’s Adam Lashinsky sat down with Apple CEO Tim Cook for a wide-ranging discussion that touched on a number of topics, from Apple’s floundering stock price, the proliferation of Apple Pay and the notion that we’ve reached ‘peak’ iPhone. But without question, the most interesting portion of the interview centered on Apple’s somewhat mythical Apple Car.

The hilarious final chapter of Tim Cook’s humiliating blurry Super Bowl photo saga

It appears as though Apple CEO Tim Cook agrees with my assessment of the iPhone 6s Plus: it’s the first iPhone I simply couldn’t live with. Had Apple’s head honcho been carrying the plus-sized version of the iPhone at the Super Bowl, however, the optical image stabilization might have saved him from the humiliating headache that his blurry Twitter photo has been.

But before it slips away into the Internet archives and is forgotten forever, there’s one last hilarious chapter for the world to enjoy. More →

The Internet is having a field day with Tim Cook’s blurry Super Bowl photo

If you’re the CEO of a company that claims to offer its customers one of the best, if not the best, camera experiences possible, you’re bound to face the brutality of the Internet as soon as you post one blurry photo. It’s all it takes, especially if that photo is taken right after Super Bowl 50 ends when everyone’s still online, enjoying the festivities.

That’s what Tim Cook did on Sunday night, shortly after the Broncos won the game: he took a quick picture from near the 20-yard line, showing the ongoing celebrations on the field. The photo, seen below, was out-of-focus, and the Internet had a field day with it.

Tim Cook talks iPhone growth and teases ‘far off’ products during company meeting

In the wake of Apple’s earnings announcement last week, CEO Tim Cook and COO Jeff Williams held court at a Town Hall meeting for employees. For those unfamiliar with Apple’s Town Hall meetings, they’re internal and private affairs intended to give employees a somewhat rare opportunity to ask the company’s top brass anything that happens to be on their mind.

Detailing some of the highlights from Apple’s most recent Town Hall event, the exceptionally reliable Mark Gurman over at 9to5Mac provides us with an interesting peek into what employees wanted to know about Apple’s future plans and what Apple executives were comfortable divulging.

Tim Cook calls kid whose life was saved by his Apple Watch

Call us crazy, but we’re pretty sure Apple secured a fan for life this week. 17-year-old Massachusetts resident Paul Houle this past weekend was finishing up football practice when his Apple Watch alerted him that his heart rate was abnormal. He eventually went to the hospital to seek treatment and learned that he had rhabdomyolysis, a condition that can lead to heart, liver and kidney failure if not treated. In other words, his Apple Watch’s heartbeat alerts probably saved his life. More →

What Tim Cook and Apple don’t get about Google’s success: Consumers don’t value their privacy

Tim Cook earlier this week said that consumers will eventually grow weary of providing their personal information to companies like Google in exchange for free services.

“You might like these so-called free services, but we don’t think they’re worth having your email, your search history and now even your family photos data-mined and sold off for god knows what advertising purpose,” Cook said. “And we think some day, customers will see this for what it is.”
