WSJ Posts Full Video of Tim Cook Discussing Apple Pay, Apple Watch, and More

In late October, Apple CEO Tim Cook took the stage at the WSJ.D conference in Laguna Beach, California, where he commented on an array of topics including the Apple Watch, Apple Pay, Apple TV, the discontinuation of the iPod classic, and more.


While we covered the content of interview at the time, The Wall Street Journal has today posted the full 30 minute video of Tim Cook's appearance at the conference, which is well worth watching in its entirety.

Some highlights of the video include an explanation of why the iPod classic was discontinued (it's impossible to get the parts), the impressive early success of Apple Pay, Cook's thoughts on the Mac and iPad, and some details on the Apple Watch, including hints on the device's battery life. "You're going to wind up charging it daily," said Cook.

The more I see of Tim Cook in this sort of interview, the more I like him and respect him as CEO of Apple. I still miss Steve of course but Tim as CEO could very well be one of the best decisions Steve ever made. When you think of other CEOs in this industry, Tim is head and shoulders above all of them. Apple is in very safe hands.

The way Tim regards TV as "stepping back 30 years in time" makes it pretty clear that they are working on a product that will revolutionize the TV industry. I'm all for it, but it seems like such a big task. Possibly their most challenging yet - then again that's Apple. They see a problem, they create a solution.

"Let the capital have a free flow" -Tim Cook What a fiscal conservative. I wish Obama and most of the libs would understand that comment. USA would be a MUCH better place.
You take him too literally. Free markets are not compatible with democracies.

Tim Cook is a fascinating speaker to watch. He comes across as affable and down-to-earth, and also has a good sense of humor. And he chooses his words very carefully, which is about the only thing that belies the fact that he's in charge of one of the world's most powerful industries. People who think he's ruining Apple greatly underestimate him.

I really liked his explanation of Apple's take on privacy, very measured but definitely strong.

"Wind up charging it daily" has always seemed like an interesting choice of words. Especially when dealing with a watch.

Cook was clearly the best choice to succeed Jobs. His speaking skills have improved a ridiculous amount in a short period of time. Now we're getting to see what Steve knew all along.
