Today you'll be hearing more than a couple stories from the Apple world coming from Tim Cook as he speaks at a Goldman Sachs Conference for investors. This talk is being streamed live via QuickTime from Apple's own Investor website for anyone who'd love to take a listen to do so. This talk has covered supplier accountability, products, and the fact that Cook cannot live without his Apple TV.
This week Apple's own Tim Cook is speaking at Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference and has addressed the Foxconn and additional working conditions reports with an assurance that monthly reports will be given from here on out. As he spoke on the measures they will be taking in the near future, he also reminded the audience that the Fair Labor Association audit is still taking place. Amongst assurances for the future are working hours being managed on a "very micro basis" and the complete destruction of underage working as their top priority.
It's clear that Apple CEO Tim Cook, who replaced the late Steve Jobs, is a different kind of leader than Jobs was. While Jobs was not known for philanthropic efforts during his life and his time with Apple, Cook is focusing heavily on talking up Apple's charitable contributions. In fact, Cook recently told employees at a Apple Town Hall meeting that the company is donating to charity in a big way.
