In this extended conversation with Outside Podcast host Michael
Roberts, Cook talks about both the incredible promise of
technology to enhance our well-being and Apple’s duty to help us
use our devices more wisely.
There’s a transcript, but I strongly suggest listening to the podcast — it’s excellent. Off the top of my head, this is the most open and relaxed I’ve ever heard Tim Cook in an interview, and his inflection brings weight to his words. His personality comes through, and he offers some genuine insight into his priorities — both in his own life and in how he’s leading Apple. Most interesting to me is how often the conversation turned to privacy. Roberts does a great job with the interview, and the soundscape is interesting too — they conducted the interview while strolling through Apple Park.
