Tim Cook Meets Fashion Designer and VizEat Co-Founders on France Tour This Week

Apple CEO Tim Cook is touring France this week and has shared some of his experiences along the trip on Twitter.


After making an unexpected visit at the new Apple Store in the port city of Marseille on Sunday, Cook met with Shot on iPhone photographer Jean Claude Luong. Cook then spent some time with Paris-based fashion designer and haute couture house owner Julien Fournié, whose latest collection was created with an iPad Pro.
Cook then had dinner with VizEat co-founders Camilla Rumani and Jean-Michel Petit. VizEat is a social dining service that allows travelers to "taste the city with locals" by booking an experience with a host, such as a cooking class, food tour, dinner, and more. VizEat was named one of the Best Apps of 2016 on the App Store.
Cook still has time for a few more excursions before heading to Scotland, where he is set to receive an honorary degree from the University of Glasgow on Wednesday. Cook was also named the recipient of the Newseum 2017 Free Expression Award in the Free Speech category last week. He will accept that award in April.

“Boy, this business of making Macs is easy innit!?”


"It was a $3000 machine with a 5400rpm drive. And they still bought it."

WOW BIG NEWS! Tim Cook is spending his million touring France to get his fake degree! Though, it is probably paid for by Apple. The photo above should be "two people that sell overpriced junk".


You should be proud of him. He's being awarded a Free Expression award, something you're clearly fond of.

I think Cook's Twitter posts speak volumes about his passions in and out of Apple. In general, I think one can break Cook's Twitter posts into three categories: 1) Apple products (including retail), 2) politics (largely focusing on diversity and inclusion), and 3) customer empowerment. Although the average MacRumors reader is probably most concerned with #1, the latter two, based on his statements, very much fit with his vision of Apple and the world.

In this regard, neither post seems impulsive or accidental. You've clearly got one post focusing on customer empowerment that showcases an Apple product (arguably, iPad Pro has brought digital sketching closer to pencil and paper than it's ever been). The second post is about an app that actually emphasizes diversity and inclusion by bringing people from different cultures together for a meal.

Second, Cook's appearance at University of Glasgow is also interesting as he tends not to do many university appearances. He's doing a Q&A with students, faculty, and staff, so it's much more than him simply swinging by to pick up his "fake degree".
