Tim Cook and Top Apple Execs Grant Rare Interview to ABC
To commemorate the 30th anniversary of the Mac, ABC has wrangled a major interview with some fairly low-key and soft-spoken folks - three of the top executives at Apple.
Although the interview will air in full this evening, highlights appeared on Good Morning America early today. And, not surprisingly, Apple CEO Tim Cook wasn't willing to spill the beans on much, however, when referencing the recent manufacturing push for the new Mac Pro, Cook said Apple can and will "do more."
Joining Cook in the interview was Craig Federighi, head of Software Engineering, and Bud Tribble, VP of Software Technology. But Cook's comments, particularly those about Apple's penchant for secrecy, are getting the most coverage today.
By Cook's own admission, Apple's secretive mode of operation is not exaggerated in the press. Many Apple employees are strictly prohibited from discussing Apple projects even with members of their own families. "Yes, there are black drapes, and numerous locked doors, and many other things," Cook said, adding that many corridors and labs on Apple territory are off limits to all but a select few.
