Cook visiting the developers behind Asana Rebel, a yoga app

Cook started off the week in Berlin, where he met with developer Peter Kolski and took a look at mauAR, an upcoming augmented reality app that will display the Berlin Wall as it was prior to its demolition in the 1990s.


Cook went on to visit the Asana Rebel team, who have created an augmented reality yoga app available on the iOS App Store.


After that, he stopped off in Paris where he met with French filmmaker Claude Lelouch, who shot his upcoming movie on the iPhone.


Cook then stopped by the offices of Foodvisor in Paris. Foodvisor is an app that is designed to analyze the nutrients in food through a photograph.


After visiting Foodvisor, Cook stopped by L'Atelier des Artistes en Exil in Paris, which showcases the artwork of artist refugees around the world.


Cook has one more day in Europe ahead of the Brussels conference, and he is planning to meet with French president Emmanuel Macron at the Élysée Palace tomorrow, where taxes and developer relationships may be topics of conversation.

Cook will be in Belgium on Wednesday, and following the conference, he may spend some more time in Europe before flying back to the United States to prepare for Apple's October 30th event in New York City.

Typical Tim, pontificating, going off on tangents, and hanging out like a social butterfly for the photo op.

Do everything except actually run Apple.

You're so smart. And the rest of the world is so dumb. Tell us all how to live.

I think Tim has done great as CEO and I wouldn't mind going out with him as he's deceptively dominant as he hides behind his childlike obsession with magical things; that's my type! He's only 57 he could be CEO for a long time coming. My business does a 1.2 million a year and Apple does 229 billion year. :confused:
