Live Coverage of Tim Cook's Interview Session at D10

As announced last month, Apple CEO Tim Cook will headline this year's D10 Conference hosted by AllThingsD, sitting down for an opening session interview tomorrow, Tuesday, May 29, at 6:00 PM Pacific / 9:00 PM Eastern. MacRumors will be on hand to provide live coverage of the session.

Cook is not expected to make any product announcements, but the session should offer some interesting insight into Cook and Apple. Tomorrow's on-stage appearance by Cook will be his first at the annual D Conference, but Steve Jobs made a number of notable appearances there over the years including a joint interview with Bill Gates back in 2007.

In fact, as AllThingsD noted when it announced Cook's participation, it will be his first on-stage appearance as CEO at any event not run by Apple or targeted at investors. Cook, who previously served several stints handling Apple's day-to-day operations during Steve Jobs' medical leaves of absence, was officially named CEO last August.

The schedule for D10 also includes screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who will be handling the screen adaptation of Walter Isaacson's authorized biography of Steve Jobs. Other headlining names include Pixar and Walt Disney Animation president Ed Catmull, Oracle founder and CEO Larry Ellison, and New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg.

I read an article about how Apple has shifted it's structure so it's no longer centered around design, but on the business aspect. Apparently, with Jobs, the design and product came first, then came all the other factors. Now they're moving to a more generic corporate structure. I hope Cook talks about this and assures us design is still important!

Wow, funny how people are all over CEO Tim Cook. What has he REALLY done wrong? The iPhone 4S was an incremental update, much like the 3GS when Steve Jobs was there?? Woah???? And the iPad, come on people, yes it is a "minor" update, but what more do you want? They added a faster processor, better screen, 4G LTE with the same battery life. Seems like they set the bar even higher in the tablet world, whats wrong with that? Give Tim a break, when the stocks start to fall, when the next iPad fails to set the bar higher or an iPhone, then yes, you have reason to question him and make comparisons. But for not, stop whining, and understand Apple's past and you will see so far, nothing major has changed yet. Geez people. :rolleyes:

Hopefully, Mr.Cook discusses the product road map and where things are generally heading, not talking about specifics. Where he sees Apple in a few years.

It will be interesting to hear from Cook no matter what is discussed.

Just getting a feel for how he handles the questions, what his demeanor is like, and how much he participates will be rather revealing.

I'm looking forward to it.

Er, last time I checked Jony Ive is still at Apple so chill....it's all good.

Oh and don't believe everything everything Adam Lashinsky writes. Most of it's BS to sell magazines/books.

Cook will always be bagged on because he isn't SJ. In time that may change.


If they do indeed put design second, well Apple products will not be the same anymore.....regardless of who is in charge.

Nothing wrong with Tim Cook but Steve Jobs was a really nice person and talented guy too.



Lets just say SJ was very talented, with a bit less of the nice :)
