Interesting commentary, and he makes some good points, although I think I like Forgot My Phone better.

Tim Cook Q&A: The Full Interview on iPhone 6 and the Apple Watch

Some really interesting comments in this interview with Tim Cook as well. I think the stuff at the end about the Apple Watch and Innovation is especially interesting, it’s clear that Apple thinks the watch is a big innovation, but will be interesting to see what the rest of the world thinks.

Tim Cook on Charlie Rose. Some interesting insights in this one, worth a watch (no pun intended)!

Some interesting details about Pixar in here and some thoughts on why Steve was able to help that company even with a less ‘hands-on’ role than what he had at Apple.

A video celebrating Tim Cook from his alma mater. I found this interesting not just for the interviews that provide insight into his character, but also because it shows a difference between Tim and Steve Jobs that has never been highlighted so clearly before. Worth a watch.

London Calling

Today’s my last day of work before I take some long-needed Long Service Leave. My family and I are going to London for almost exactly 100 days. My wife will be studying patisserie  at Le Cordon Bleu and I will be looking after the kids. I’m really looking forward to the break, and to spending some more time with the boys, but it means that for the next couple of months this blog is probably more likely to be filled with London anecdotes than technology news, although there should be an Apple event at some point while we are away that I will likely blog about.
