Government orders Tim Cook to testify in price-fixing lawsuit

Apple CEO Tim Cook will be required to testify for 4 hours on the eBook price-fixing scandal the company was accused of. Apple is the last company, out of 6, to be testifying in this case. The other companies, which include Hachette, HarperCollins, Simon & Schuster, Penguin, and Macmillan have all reached a settlement with the Department of Justice. The companies had to terminate their agreements with Apple and other retailers, and follow a list of guidelines administered by the DoJ to ensure this issue would never happen again.

Apple CEO: “if we don’t cannibalize, someone else will”

As Tim Cook spoke at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference this week, a question of "cannibalization" came up, prompting the Apple CEO to speak about the first time he'd ever been asked such a question. Believe it or not, it wasn't when the iPad mini was introduced - it wasn't even when the iPhone or the iPod nano was introduced. In fact it was back when the iBook was revealed back in 1999.

Tim Cook talks Apple product price chopping

This week Tim Cook spoke at the Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference about the affordability of Apple products. Having been asked a question about prepaid customers working with smartphones and other smart products in emerging markets, the same commenter suggesting cheaper iPhones, Cook let it be known that Apple was already there - so to speak. Cook made it clear, "we lowered the price of iPhone 4, we lowered the price of iPhone 4S, [and] in the most recent quarter we didn't have enough stock of iPhone 4 after we lowered the price. It surprised us ... so we are making the move to make things more affordable."

Cook assures Apple wont “spin cycles” on proxy fight

This week we're hearing quite a bit about a stockholder issue with Apple surrounding a lawsuit headed by David Einhorn's Greenlight Capital - and today Tim Cook has fired back. In a talk at this year's Goldman Sachs Technology and Internet Conference, Tim Cook spoke about how Apple's biggest shareholder Greenlight Capital is suing the company, saying Apple should be dishing out more money to investors than they already do, saying that Preferred Stocks would be a good idea for the company. Cook spoke up today saying that the issue is being "considered" by Apple, but that in the end, it's all a bit of a waste of time.

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

After Apple’s 2012, a “prolific” 2013 could shake the industry

This week Apple's Tim Cook made no effort to hide his excitement over the success Apple has had over its first fiscal quarter of 2013, letting investors know that it's largely because of the products of 2012 that this good time for the company is driven into the future. Back when Cook promised us big things in 2012 early last year, we saw new iterations of essentially every product Apple had on the market, along with a couple new ones to boot. Cook's affirmation here at the beginning of 2013 could very well mean big things for the company through the next 12 months as far as production goes - just as long as the supply chain Apple relies on doesn't get in the way.

Apple employee town hall meeting letter sets the tone

Yesterday Apple announced new record results for their financial Q1 2013 including sales of iOS devices as well as overall revenue, and with those announcements came an invite from Tim Cook to employees for a town hall meeting being held this morning.

At the moment we're not entirely sure if we'll be seeing the results of this session or if it will be closed-door employees-only in the end.
