Philip Elmer-DeWitt on Joe Nocera on Tim Cook

Philip Elmer-DeWitt:

But what will be remembered about Nocera’s latest Apple column is that he called Tim Cook a liar — accusing him of telling, under oath, a “whopper” and a “flat-out lie.” Nocera implies, but doesn’t actually say, that he makes those charges after watching Cook’s testimony.

I watched Cook’s testimony — twice. I find it hard to believe that Nocera saw any of it. And having read the documents and news articles he cites, I believe that on the points with which he has factual disagreements with Cook, he’s provably wrong.


Update: More dissection of Nocera’s claims from Yoni Heisler at TUAW.
