Apple CEO Cook meets Chinese Vice Premier Li Keqiang


During his recent visit to China, Apple CEO Tim Cook took time out to meet with Chinese Vice Premier Li Kegiang. According to a Xinhua report, the two men discussed intellectual property rights protection and economic development. “To be more open to the outside is a condition for China to transform its economic development, expand domestic demands and conduct technological innovation,” Li said. He continued on to say that trade and economic cooperation are an “important cornerstone” for the cooperative partnership of mutual respect and reciprocity that China and the U.S. are trying to establish. Li also called on multinational companies to expand cooperation with China, participate in development of western China, pay more attention to workers, and share development opportunities. Cook, for his part, said Apple will strengthen comprehensive cooperation with China, and conduct business in an honest, law-abiding manner. [via Engadget]

If ever evidence was needed that the culture of Apple is changing, this is it. No offence to Tim Cook - he’s doing his job and very well.
But first the dividend, then a posed PR picture. Couldn’t be more unlike Steve Jobs if you tried. I just hope innovation is not going to be lost somewhere. I do fear it might soon.
It’s a ridiculous reaction to one photograph. But, somehow, I’m a little bit fearful as to the future innovation Apple can bring if the focus moves slightly to revenue above all.
It actually became what it is now by concentrating on core values and having total faith in what it put out as product.
Just fear there is a subtle shift here.
