Apple Senior Vice President Eddy Cue Joins Ferrari's Board of Directors

Eddy Cue, Apple's head of Internet Software and Services (including Siri and Maps), has joined Ferrari's board of directors. Cue is a bit of a sports car buff and says he has owned a Ferrari for five years.

Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo said Cue's "huge experience in the dynamic, innovative world of the Internet will be of great assistance to [the company]." Di Montezemolo met Apple CEO Tim Cook earlier this year at a Stanford University event. He praised Apple, saying the two companies "are connected by the same passion, the same love for the product, maniacal attention to technology, but also to design."

I am pleased and proud to become a member of the board. I have personally dreamed of owning a Ferrari since I was 8 years old and have been lucky to be an owner for the past 5 years. I continue to be awed by the world-class design and engineering that only Ferrari can do.
Cue was recently profiled as a "master negotiator and product resuscitator" after he was given charge of Siri and Maps. The Ferrari press release was noticed by AppleInsider.

Completely not a mac rumor


Yeah but if you spell Mac backwards and take off the "m" and add an "r" then you get car.

Who's the foolish one now?

That's funny there was a VERY similar story to this in the Steve Jobs bio (I think it was in there, could have been a different source). One of the employees wanted to be on the board of a completely different and non-competing company, and Jobs basically said heck no, you need to focus all of your time at Apple.

Soooo.....well. You know. :D
