Tim Cook to Headline D10 Conference on May 29

cook ipad 3 on stage
AllThingsD today announced that Apple CEO Tim Cook will be the opening keynote speaker at the D10 Conference scheduled for late May. Cook will appear in an evening interview session on Tuesday, May 29 in Rancho Palos Verdes, California.

Walt Mossberg and I could not be more thrilled to announce that Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, will be the opening-night speaker at our 10th D: All Things Digital conference.

It will be Cook’s first appearance at D, as well as his first time being onstage at an event not run by Apple or for investors since he was named CEO last August.

Steve Jobs made a number of appearances at the D conferences, including a notable joint appearance with Bill Gates at D5 in 2007 and his final appearance there at D8 in 2010.

Might not be "showing off"

Good comment, but I have to rate you down. Sorry, but look at my signature


I've seen your posts (and sig) on MR a number of times. I always thought, "That's kind of a funny position to take..." But, of course, I had no way of knowing whether you're actually downvoting... or if you were just being funny.

Well, after you're finished downvoting me (for my sig contents), I wonder if you'll consider the fact that some folks put their devices in their sig for other reasons that are actually usefuly in these forums. I'm sure there are many such reasons. For me, it harkens back to the days of using Apple's own Discussion Boards, where you are encouraged to post the details of your "setup" to provide context when posting technical problems, etc.

I think lots of people that post on these more "commentary" threads may also be posting to technical threads... trying to help people solve problems... or even asking questions of their own. By sharing which machines they have, it can actually help to elucidate issues or problems.

I realize I'm probably wasting my breath here... but I just wanted to throw it out... and see if you're capable of understanding that people aren't necessarily "braggging" about their treasure trove of devices.

And, finally, if you're going to downrate, just DO IT. You don't have to post to the world that you did it. Geesh!

I'd like to see Apple shift its focus back on making computers. Enough with this iOS/iToy crap, theres still a lot of old school mac users that do actual work on them.


The iOS/iToy crap is where Apple makes most of it's profits so I don't think you'll see a shift in focus.

Yet it is because of their marketing on iDevices that spurred this recent surge. Remember the days when Apple commercials had the likes of Jeff Goldblum selling Mac's?

[shortened for brevity in comment response]

My point, Apple created a device then marketed it aggressively while ignoring the OS X based power systems. The lack of desktop systems in Apple's market isn't due to user needs changing but Apple's push back in 2007 to iDevices, creating a need where none existed and created a segment for the company while ignoring what once made Apple a powerhouse with professionals.

Yet, there are many who need a power system with larger screen real estate. Try HD rendering on a iPad, or actual photo editing that iPhoto for iPad's is incapable of doing. ARM processors on iDevices cannot replace the need for power systems. Consumers can toy around with iPhoto, which is quite good for average needs. The drop of a decent Final Cut revamp with the failed X release, and as my friend who works as a design consult for engineers has attested, the Pro Apps department is sadly lacking in serious engineers and funding. Steve Jobs has even stated after the acquisition of Shake that the input from creatives/professionals will no longer be needed at Apple. That's telling in itself.

Some excellent points sir. :)
