Apple CEO Tim Cook in New York for Meeting With EU's Competition Chief Margrethe Vestager

Apple CEO Tim Cook is in New York City today for a meeting with Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition, according to a person familiar with the matter. Vestager was a keynote speaker at Fordham University's annual Conference on International Antitrust Law and Policy earlier today.

It's unclear when Cook and Vestager are scheduled to meet or what topics will be on the agenda. In April, the European Commission informed Apple of its preliminary view that it abused its dominant position for the distribution of music streaming apps through the App Store by charging high commission fees on Apple Music rivals like Spotify, which had filed a complaint against Apple with the European Commission in 2019.

While in New York, Cook stopped in at Apple's retail store in the SoHo neighborhood this morning, sharing a photo of his visit on Twitter. Cook also tweeted a photo of his visit to the International Center of Photography.



Following his trip to New York, Cook is reportedly scheduled to speak at the Silicon Slopes Summit in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 13, and he will headline a fundraising dinner on the same day. In late August, Cook reached his 10th year as Apple CEO.

Would like to see apple hit with major anti trust laws and actually innovate again
Might be nice, but first apple would actually have to violate some anti trust law.

I can say with confidence that it won't be about why Apple is backing businesses groups that are fighting climate legislation ('https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2021/oct/01/apple-amazon-microsoft-disney-lobby-groups-climate-bill-analysis') despite Tim Apple's insistence that more needs to be done to address climate change.

Cue all the Tim Cook haters on this site. Some of you forget that Steve Jobs CHOSE Tim, it is who he wanted to run Apple. And most of you with the hate weren't around when real idiots ran Apple in the late 80's early 90's. You want Gil back? Sculley? Elon? Get over it
