      1. He was make a statement. Starting with “I wonder”. He didn’t actually ask the question.

        Though I don’t care for what he implied.

        If he said, “I wonder. What questions are off limits?” Then what you said would be correct. I bet though, he should have used a comma, after wonder, to be correct.

        1. I didn’t take the implication as anything other than future-products-questions being off limits. I didn’t think it had anything to do with asking Mr. Cool anything of a personal nature; most people already have their ideas about that subject, and simply don’t find the answer pertinent to his leading of the company. I don’t think it was anything sinister.

    1. I bet 30 minutes. That’s all I get with my CEO. But if he was cool, then he would give you an hour. Ask the correct questions, then he will take you to lunch. If you are experiencing Groundhog Day, then you have all the time in the world to get it right.

  1. Had I won the auction, I’d have used the time with Tim Cook wisely.

    To wit: quickly dispensing with the pleasantries, advancing to the central issue (for some of us, at least): his negligence of Mac Pro users.

    Staring at him wall-eyed and expectant, I’d implore him to consider the needs of the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. We’re not fond of rules. We have no respect for the status quo. You can quote us, disagree with is, glorify or vilify us. But the only thing you can’t do is IGNORE US. BECAUSE WE CHANGE THINGS. We push the human race forward. While some may see us as the crazy ones, we see beyond their limited vision. We, who are crazy enough to think we can change the world, are the ones who do. More creation devices, please. Another latte, Tim?

      1. Normally the Oracle prefers cryptic utterances. But I’ll try to explain.

        Meeting with Tim Cook, I’d remind him of Apple’s fundamental identity: maker of tools for creative people. Not “consumption devices” like iPods and iPads, so successful that the corporate eye wandered, but “creation devices.” Workstations, or their expression in wonderful new forms.

        I’d quote the “Think Different” message to build emotional urgency; then, speaking on behalf of creative professionals, I’d remind him: we’re waiting for such tools, Tim.
