It’s no secret that Apple Senior VP Eddy Cue is a massive basketball fan, with an office full of Duke memorabilia, and sightings at various NBA games over the years.
Which probably explains why he looks quite as ecstatically happy as he does to be rocking a Golden State Warriors’ championship ring in a new photo posted to his Twitter feed, following yesterday’s award ceremony for the new NBA champions 2015-2016.
Today is the fourth anniversary of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs’ passing, and as has become tradition on October 4, some of his closest co-workers are sharing their fondest memories of what it was like working alongside him.
Tim Cook, Phil Schiller, Eddy Cue, Andrea Jung and Bud Tribble all shared short essays with Apple employees this morning on the company’s intranet. To commemorate Jobs’ legacy, Tim Cook told employees in an email to stop older executives today and ask what Jobs was really like.
With controversial movie Steve Jobs set for release later this month, Jobs’ co-workers’ essays provide a look at aspects of the visionary Apple CEO’s personality that those who only knew him through the public eye probably missed.
Here’s what Jobs’ friends had to say about working with him:
Eddy Cue has given an interview to U.K. newspaper the Evening Standard, in which he describes the company’s long-term approach to making Apple Music work, as well as hinting at Apple’s plans to help customers avoid roaming charges when they take their iPhone abroad.
Tim Cook made a surprise appearance today at the Fifth Ave Apple Store in NYC ahead of his appearance on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert tomorrow night.
During his visit, Cook mingled with the customers, took selfies, and photobombed Eddy Cue before getting swarmed by a mob of fans anxious to get a close-up with the Apple CEO. Buzzfeed created a Snapchat story of the CEO’s visit which wasn’t announced to fans or employees before he dropped in for some quality times with customers.
Apple is looking to create its own original content, and according to a new report, that almost included signing former ESPN ‘Sports Guy’ Bill Simmons to provide an exclusive podcast for Apple users.
ESPN abrupty announced that they would not be renewing Simmons’ contract earlier this year, which led Apple media boss Eddy Cue to gauge the ESPN star’s interest in creating an exclusive audio podcast deal, before he decided to sign on a multi-platform deal with HBO.
