Apple CEO Tim Cook and iTunes Chief Eddy Cue Attend Sun Valley Media Retreat

Apple CEO Tim Cook and iTunes Chief Eddy Cue this week attended the Allen & Co. Sun Valley media conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, as they have done for the last several years.

Many well known tech and media moguls attend the Sun Valley event, which is essentially a retreat and is invitation only, but meetings and discussions at the conference are kept under wraps so it's unlikely we'll hear details on anything that goes on. In years past, Cook and Cue have kept a low profile during the week long event.

Described as a "summer camp for billionaires," the conference includes activities like rafting, cycling, and golf, and because it brings so many major media executives together in one place, it's been credited as the catalyst for major deals like the AOL and Time Warner merger, Walt Disney's acquisition of ABC, Google's purchase of YouTube, and Jeff Bezos' acquisition of The Washington Post.

Apple has been taking a more direct approach to media in recent months with its ever-growing interest in original content, so it's no surprise to see Cook and Cue at the event once again.

Other notable 2017 attendees include Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Jared and Ivanka Trump, DreamWorks CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg, Time Warner CEO Jeff Bewkes, Twitter COO Anthony Noto, 21st Century Fox Chairman Rupert Murdoch, CBS Chairman Les Moonves, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg.

When is Eddy going to get the boot? Pushing Apple into original content is nuts. He’s going to waste a fortune on content no one wants to watch.

Wow. The Eddy Cue and Tim Cook comments are ridiculous. Making snide comments about two individuals nobody has ever met and yet so easy to throw insults over the Internet, isn't it?

You must be new here. On MacRumors the sole reason to comment is to take a dump on Apple, its products, its executives, or its customers. Apple haters/critics far outnumber fans on this site. Known fact.

Now that SJ's gone I guess that its time to forget about work and just play, play, play.

They can both stay there as far as I'm concerned. Then maybe Apple can get a CEO in who won't let parts of their product lines languish in purgatory for eons, will actually make sure their products aren't obsolete on arrival and won't push into areas such as original content with asinine garbage like "Planet of The Apps"
[doublepost=1499987564][/doublepost]

But for others to make petty comments about someone they have had zero interaction with and throw judgment based off nothing is uncalled for.

Do tell what Eddy Cue has brought to the table. I'll wait. As for Cook, letting a product line languish in purgatory for 5 years isn't "throwing judgement based off nothing". Cook is a bean-counter CEO and nothing more and Cue is incompetent.

Yeah maybe they can get a CEO who could triple the value of the company since Steve Jobs' death!

Oh wait, Apple already has the guy who did that.
