Tim Cook to Be Profiled on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams Next Week

Tim Cook will be the center of a feature on NBC's Rock Center news show next week, the first major interview the CEO has given. Steve Jobs was famously camera shy, preferring to let Apple's products speak for themselves.

In this brief preview, Williams notes that Tim Cook was able to walk around Grand Central Station unrecognized until he got to the Apple Store there.

I see Tim regularly at the Fraiche Yogurt shop in Palo Alto with his iPad. He never seems to recognize me though ;)
