Apple CEO Tim Cook will be the featured speaker on the first night of AllThingsD's D11 conference on May 28 in San Francisco. This marks the second year Mr. Cook will be interviewed during the event, and last year he offered frank answers when asked about Apple philosphies and plans.
Apple CEO Tim Cook to be interviewed at D11
Last year, Mr. Cook hinted that Apple might be looking at the television market when Walt Mossberg asked if products like Apple TV are enough to change the market, or if the company needs to build a TV as well. In response to Mr. Mossberg's question, he said, "We would look not just at this area, but other areas and ask can we control the key technology."
He also spoke about the Apple that Steve Jobs left behind when he passed away, patent infringement lawsuits, the company's stock value, and more.
D is an annual technology conference hosted by Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher of AllThingsD. The two conduct live interviews with industry leaders talking about their businesses and the overall tech industry, and often dive into topics that their guests otherwise wouldn't talk about.
D11 runs from May 28 through May 30 and includes guests such as Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, Dennis Woodside from Motorola Mobility, Pinterest’s Ben Silbermann, Jeff Immelt of GE, Android senior vice president Sundar Pichai, Kaz Hirai from Sony, and ABC's Anne Sweeney.
